I too was very much in favor of the Y, however not now. The Y is going to cost $5 Millioin and according to Wayne Acors, will be paid for by deveoper proffers. However, when anyone asks who these deveopers are and how much they are going to give, no one will tell you.

It is my opinion that the citizens of Caroline County will end up paying for the Y.

If so, this is a cost that Caroline County can ill afford given that the Caroline County is over $85,000 in debt.

So us the money Wayne. Who paying for the Y and how much are they going to give.

If not, then lets get rid of Wayne Acors and his cronies and elect people who are physically responsible.

Stop the bleading of Caroline County NOW!

Let's face facts, the tax payers are going to foot the bill so Mr. Acors can keep his promise to the people of Ladysmith Village and give them a Y! The proffers and builders fees are in the tens of thousands, not millions! It won't surprise me either if it will be called the Acors YMCA (like the one in Spotsy is the Rosner Y)

You want them to be more physically responsible? Maybe the YMCA will help them with that!

And when a house is built in Pendleton or Ladysmith Village, around $4,000 is given to the County to use towards projects such as this.(The number is a little different between the two communities, and goes up a little each year) Anyways, this money, plus money from selling naming rights, is what they plan to use to pay for the YMCA. The funding approved is for 5 years, starting in August. Whatever they can get from naming rights and proffers in that time will be taken off the $5 million (plus interest). At the end of that 5 years, whatever is left will need to be refinanced. That will be 5 years from now, and after 2 BOS elections... so who knows who will be on the BOS by then, and how they will vote.

Why is the "Y' being placed in Ladysmith Village?; why does everything new go in Ladysmith Village? It is fine with me to drive into this neighbrhood, but that is exactly what this feels like... I need to enter a particular neighborhood for amenities in Caroline County, the library, yoga class, festivals... now the "Y".

I agree with CarolineRes, why does all the new amenities end up in Ladysmith. It makes other residents in Caroline think they are not worthy of all the new things the county is bringing. What do I need to do to get a Building named after me or my family? give money etc...I'm glad the YMCA is coming since I would prefer to go closer to home and hopefully it is not a small facilty..

sure hope the YMCA has more and better parking than the Library, obviously they assumed the only people that are educated and smart enough to read, live within walking distance of Library, therefore they don't need any parking.....can we please get a better quality of people to run for the BOS next go around?

You know you could park at the curb and walk like the rest of us. BTW, should the library ever expand, the plan is that the parking are goes away.

parking goes away...huh...may as well....perfect example of the poor planning....park at the't you all already have too many "parking at the curb"

Why does everyone have to park right at the door? GEESH!
Poor planning? No that's why there IS plenty of parking at the curb along Library Blvd.
