Bucks County approves $20 million tax-free financing for YMCAs


The Bucks County Commissioners, the county’s Industrial Development Authority and YMCA of Bucks County recently announced the approval of a $20 million tax-free financing project to support the refinancing of long-term debt and planned improvements to YMCA facilities in Fairless Hills and Doylestown.

Lower Bucks Family YMCA and Central Bucks Family YMCA merged to form YMCA of Bucks County in August 2018. In January, they merged with Upper Bucks YMCA, forming one countywide YMCA organization.

“We’ve been inspired by the support of the community for our campaign to fund these building projects and are excited to cross the campaign ‘finish line’ in the coming months with the community’s continued support and our partnership with the county,” said Zane Moore, president and CEO of YMCA of Bucks County.

In Fairless Hills, space will be reconfigured within the building’s current footprint to allow for an expanded fitness center, new universal locker room, additional program space, community gathering area, and more parking, plus give the building a new, modern look.

In Doylestown, the fitness center will be expanded, a larger spin studio and new program space will be added as will a new universal locker room.
