The Staunton YMCA continues to expand. Crews spent the past two days demolishing the old Pizza Hut building.
The Y bought the property for $300,000 so it could create additional parking. It expects to add 20 more spaces.
Morris Peltz, the executive director of the Staunton YMCA, says it's been a long time coming
"The YMCA has gotten very busy and we're very fortunate to be able to share the parking lots that are here with the bank and with Food Lion, but we do need additional space here as well,” he said.
Peltz says the space will be off-limits for parking for now, but crews will likely lay asphalt in March when the ground thaws.
