YMCA Facilities Master Plan

Chicago, IL

The Lakota Group was engaged by YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago to develop a Facilities Master Plan with an emphasis on on twelve key targeted sites. The Master Plan fosters a broad, long-term vision for the YMCA of Metro Chicago facilities, supported by both internal and external input and understanding. It builds upon the current strategic planning thinking, direction, and initiatives to refocus growth and make necessary improvements into clear and definable action steps. Previous capital improvements, program goals, and plans were reviewed and discussed as part of an overall master planning conversation. For the twelve key sites, the planning process identifies and illustrates a range of creative solutions that align with the YMCA grand vision for the future.
