City of Raytown MO to Lose Their YMCA

The faltering inner-ring suburb of Raytown MO is about to lose another business/amenity: the YMCA.


The Richard C. Green Sr. YMCA facility is located just west of the taxpayer-subsidized Walmart at M-350 and Hardy and is one of the newer YMCAs in the Metro.


According to the story on the KSHB-41 website- declining enrollments and renews of memberships led to the closing- along with two other YMCA locations in Independence and Kansas City KS..


Meanwhile- there's talk of yet ANOTHER Walmart going into Raytown- reportedly a Walmart grocery to possibly be built in the former church location around 62nd Street and Blue Ridge Boulevard.


This after another grocery store in a strip shopping center about four blocks away recently shut it's doors.
