YMCA of Frederick County to host ribbon cutting
at the new South County Family YMCA in Urbana
The brand new 62,000 square foot facility officially opened to the public on Friday, April 9, 2021
The YMCA of Frederick County will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at their new South County Family YMCA at 3481 Campus Drive, Ijamsville, on Saturday, April 24 at 10 am.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony is invite-only and will include donors, YMCA staff, and elected officials including Senator Ronald Young, Senator Michael Hough, and Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner. A VIP reception will be held inside the facility following the ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours will be provided.
“Partnering with the YMCA on this project was a win-win for Frederick County. The County’s $3.6 million investment in the beautiful new aquatic center allowed us to create opportunities for our high school swim teams to practice and for the general public to enjoy open swim time,” said Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner.
Also In attendance will be Tom Natelli, Natelli Communities, who donated the $8.5 million plot of land to the YMCA.
“Thanks to Natelli Communities land donation, we are so excited to open this centrally-located facility. We have already seen so many youth and teens coming through the facility in the few weeks we have been open,” says President and CEO Chris Colville. “The community has been incredibly supportive of the YMCA, and we are thrilled to have such a beautiful wide-open space where we can impact the community with our healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility initiatives.”
Representatives from the project team will be in attendance as well including JRL Construction Management, Morgan-Keller Construction, Zavos Architecture+Design, Harris Smariga, Specialized Engineering, GRO Development, and more.
“Morgan-Keller is proud to have been part of this great project that will have a positive impact on our community. This new facility will be enjoyed by Frederick County residents for years to come and we are glad that we could help bring it to fruition.”
