BANGOR, Maine — The Bangor Y announced on Thursday a $2.2 million, two-phased project that will consolidate operations into a renovated and expanded facility on Second Street.
The Y’s plans are the result of a study commissioned in 2008 to assess the feasibility of consolidating its two Bangor locations — the original YMCA on Hammond Street and the former YWCA on Second Street.
In the last year, the Y has quietly been acquiring small parcels of property adjacent to the Second Street campus, which will facilitate expansion, Bangor Y CEO Mike Seile said.
The timeline for expanding the Second Street location and closing Hammond Street has not been finalized, but Seile said Phase I will begin later this spring. Phase I includes expanding parking at the Second Street location and renovating the gymnasium and work-out facilities.
