Westland YMCA on Fondren to Close

The 31-year-old Westland branch of the YMCA, on Fondren in southwest Houston, is closing at the end of the month.

YMCA spokesperson Ann Herlocher tells Hair Balls the organization got an unsolicited offer for the building and land from the Westbury Christian School.

"We had to consider it," she says, because of "declining membership and increasing operating costs."

There are two other Ys within six miles of Westland, she says, and members will automatically be transferred to the West Orem Y.

Westbury Christian intends to renovate the building and use it as an athletic complex, Herlocher said. The property includes a pool and a large field, usually used for soccer or baseball.
