An article in the Payson Roundup regarding a recent Payson Unified School Board (PUSD) meeting attributed me as saying that “at one time there was talk of putting a YMCA in Frontier.”
For the record, what I said was at one time a group of people had placed a referendum for a YMCA in Rumsey Park and now we have a vacant school and playgrounds at Frontier. Wouldn’t it be great if those same people came together and pursued a YMCA at Frontier? The backers would save the cost of building a YMCA, PUSD would save between $200K-$400K annually from their M&O budget and perhaps receive a nominal lease fee or purchase, and the community would have a YMCA.
