Section D HaysFreePress com CLASSIFIEDS SERVICE "- PUBLIC NOTICES DIRECTORY March 13, 2013 YMCA Hays in Buda is located at 465 Buda Sportspiex Drive, just west of Dahlstrom Middle School PHOTO BY DAVID WHITE BY MOSES LEOS III When it comes to local growth, few places show the need for expansion as much as the HaysYMCA. Later this month, the Hays Commu- nities branch oftheYMCAwill complete Phase One of a multi-phase initiative to expand the current site in Buda, in or- der to accommodate a bustling com- munity. The YMCA is located close to Dahl- strom Middle School, among the areas fast growing subdivisions. According to YMCA Executive Direc- tor Bret Kiester, the expansion is neces- sary, as the current 30,000-square-foot site is simply too small for the number of members. The national average of 7.9 square feet per member for such a facility swamps Hays' approximate 3.4 square feet per YMCA member. "It is a great problem to have," said Kiester, who said membership within the Hays YMCA continues to grow since the site opened in April 2007. Currently; the Hays YMCA serves more than 8,900 members, as well as 450 non-mem- bers participating in youth sports and aquatic programs from all over the Aus- fin Metro area. The 17,000-square-foot addition includes multi-purpose space and changes to the existing area, according to Kiester. The cost for the expansion is pro- jected to be close to $800,000 when completed, which will be funded by the YMCA of Austin, said Jim Pacey, Vice President of Development at the YMCA of Austin. "This will meet the needs of the growing community," Pacey said. In the first phase of the expansion See YMCA EXPANSION, pg. 4D : / Where does the 1" .lquor flow fastest locally?
