Welcome to the Sherwood Regional
Welcome to the Sherwood Regional Family YMCA, a family-oriented community center offering kids, families and individuals the opportunity to invest in wellness for spirit, mind and body.
After the City Council vote we want you to know we are committed to our community. The YMCA will continue to operate the Sherwood Regional Family YMCA for the remainder of our contract, with an ongoing focus on providing quality programs led by our caring and dedicated staff. We have invested 19 years in the Sherwood community and will serve our members and participants until changes occur. As we learn more we will communicate information as it becomes available.
City Council Selects Health Fitness
The Sherwood City Council, in a three to three vote, selected Health Fitness to start the contract process to operate the Sherwood Recreational Center beginning October 2018. Health Fitness won what became a tie breaker after three City Council members ranked the YMCA in first place and the other three City Council members ranked Health Fitness in the first position. The tie breaker occurred because two of the three City Council members who ranked Health Fitness first, placed the YMCA in the third position behind Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation.
Of note, if the contract process with Health Fitness is not successful, the YMCA would be asked to begin the process. In addition, when the contract is completed it must go back to the City Council for approval.
On Tuesday, Aug. 15, the City Council selected Health Fitness to begin contract negotiations to operate the Sherwood Recreational Facility for the next five years, beginning in 2018. For additional information about the process, please visit our FAQ page and Sherwood City Council Vote.
