A group of people who want the South Bend YMCA to reopen say they’ll be filing a complaint with the Attorneys General of Indiana and Michigan.
The facility on Northside Drive in South Bend has been closed since March. A member of the YMCA board told WSBT that the closures happened because the South Bend Y is not financially viable right now. Even before the issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were building repairs that were needed. Being forced to cancel their programs provided no funding to fix up the building.
The South Bend YMCA merged recently with several others in Michigan, including in Niles and Benton Harbor, to form the YMCA of Greater Michiana.
