Dear friends and supporters of Geneva Park,
Last week, when we announced the decision by our Board of Directors to initiate the sale of Geneva Park, we committed to ongoing communication throughout the process.
This email is to inform you of an enhancement of that process.
Specifically, we are excited to announce that we have initiated the Request for Proposal (RFP) to engage a real estate provider to help us gather and assess all possible community-based solutions for Geneva Park, before proceeding to an open market listing.
That is, we are inviting the community into a process that will first prioritize the long-term sustainability of our YMCA while seeking the best community use of the property and ways to continue the legacy of the Park.
We already knew that Geneva Park holds a special place in the hearts of so many of our partners, individuals and families but the response following our announcement has been overwhelming in terms of new potential solutions presented, and this has inspired these enhancements to the process.
We remain committed to a transparent process led by a real estate professional, where all ideas and potential partnerships will be considered equally and fairly.
This next step in the process is now underway. We have launched the real estate RFP process to ensure we have the industry expertise to structure this unique and important community proposal process. The RFP is available through Biddingo; a link will be posted to our website at To receive the RFP directly, please email We expect the selection of an advisor to be completed by the end of February and will seek to have a community proposal process confirmed and launched by mid to late March.
For 110 years, our YMCA has been an organization rooted in community. We are excited to have the opportunity to reflect that continued commitment in this process enhancement.
Thank you for your continued interest and support.
