Kansas City, Kansas YMCA spared from closure

  • The Y is staying in KCK.

The YMCA is going to stay in downtown Kansas City, Kansas. The YMCA of Greater Kansas City said on Friday that it reached an agreement with Wyandotte County to keep its Eighth Street branch open, despite announcing in March that the location would be shuttered.

The plan to close the KCK location (along with the Raytown and Independence outposts) was part of the Y’s plan to build a large new facility in downtown KCMO at 10th Street and Grand.
