YMCA Files Injunction to Halt Building of Swimming Pool

LEWISBURG, WV -- The Greenbrier Valley YMCA has filed an injunction along with Greenbrier County (WV) residents and a physical therapy business to halt the building of a swimming pool facility, according to the Beckley (WV) Register-Herald.

A tentative agreement was signed by the Greenbrier County Commission to build and manage a multimillion-dollar junior Olympic-size swimming pool facility on land owned by Kevin Workman, owner of Greenbrier Valley Physical Therapy, the newspaper reports. The projected cost, according to the contract, is between $4 million and $5 million.

According to a petition filed by Lewisburg, WV, lawyer Barry Bruce, the Y, West Virginia Physical Therapy and Wellness Center, and other petitioners were not allowed the opportunity to bid and participate in the process leading up to the agreement between the Greenbrier County Commission and Greenbrier Valley Physical Therapy.

Earlier in the year, YMCA officials submitted plans to the county commission to have their organization manage the proposed swimming pool facility and submitted construction plans to the commission, the newspaper reports.
