We are pleased to share that the Superior Court of Justice has dismissed the lawsuit by the Friends of Geneva Park. The final decision of the Superior Court can be found here.
We appreciate the messages of care and concern we have received about this situation, and we are grateful and excited to be moving forward. Together, we have achieved a solution that is the best possible outcome for our YMCA and all those who love Geneva Park.
The sale of Geneva Park is now complete and the buyer can begin the critical process of renewing this important legacy property for the future.
Our work now will turn to facilitating a smooth transition, which includes working with the buyer to explore opportunities to celebrate the YMCA’s legacy at the park to this point in time.
Our Board of Directors will be making a plan about how the proceeds of the sale will be invested into the charitable activities of our association. This will be undertaken through a thoughtful process, according to our new strategic plan, which will take some time. However, we are committed to communicating with the communities we serve across the region as these decisions are made.
Thank you for your continued support. We are entering this new phase at the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka feeling hopeful, optimistic and confident.
