The Westport Weston Family Y has received a 5-year extension on the sale of its downtown building.
According to WestportNow.com, the original plan was to break ground for the Mahackeno facility this year, and move in in 2011. Litigation by neighbors, and the difficult economy affecting the developer (Bedford Square Associates) has pushed the schedule back 2 years.
But sources have told “06880” that the economy is hitting the Y hard too. It’s tough to raise $42 million for a controversial new building these days — and the capital campaign has not even begun.
Money, Cyndi Lauper says, changes everything.
So does no money.
