YMCA plans deserve better journalism

Upon return from Spain, CDSI Info e-mail was filled with regional neighbors' concerns for a continuing YMCA presence in the Alamo region including continuing on-campus services at SRVUSD schools and potential use of the SRV YMCA property for YMCA commercial offerings.
Rather than simply printing press releases that promote the YMCA without full disclosure of community concerns, you need to use your journalistic talents to investigate and present the strong negatives felt by regional neighborhoods toward the overall YMCA actions and events of the past years.
With BAYMCA and SRVUSD refusing interactive communications with regional neighborhoods, we must rely on your journalism to disclose the full PUBLIC reality of the YMCA, its sources and uses of funds, and its detailed planning for our region.
Journalism, please. There are far better options for SRVUSD on-campus after-school learning programs and there are far better uses for the SRV YMCA property in Alamo.
