Jefferson County New Y Project

Port Townsend, Brinnon, Quilcene, and Chimacum are communities full of great potential. Jefferson County is a great place for families, seniors, individuals, and everyone in between to come together. Jefferson County is home to growing businesses, vibrant social opportunities and rich diversity. But there’s something missing.

Jefferson County has too few places where people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds can come together to be active and inspired by one another—engaged in building a stronger community for everyone.  

Our community's vision for the future

The Olympic Peninsula YMCA is excited to be working on a new project in Jefferson County at the Mountain View Commons campus creating a place where all members of these communities can come together. We are planning a new indoor recreational and wellness center including a 25-yard competitive length pool to be built together with public and private funding operated by the Olympic Peninsula YMCA.

The right half of the new building houses the 2-pool natatorium and the left half of the building a two-story YMCA facilityThe ground floor behind the entrance would house the lobby, locker rooms, and office space. The second floor would include wellness and workout spaces, studios, and space for Jefferson Healthcare services. Illustration by Port Townsend artist Mike Kowalski.

The potential new YMCA facility is shown in the center of the campus attached to a refurbished gym building.  The classroom building on the northeast end of the campus is unchanged. The ReCyclery on the southwest end of the campus is shown including their vision of a bike skills park behind the ReCyclery buildings.  That park is not intended as part of the Y project but is consistent with the overall vision for the campus.
