A drive to create a Statesboro YMCA heads toward 2016 with a big, local committee, a unanimously elected chairman and a survey showing that the strongest interest – among roughly 800 people who chose to respond – is in programs for adults, families and teenagers. The next step, according to Statesboro YMCA Steering Committee chairman Bob Mikell and others involved, will be to identify a location for a YMCA facility. “The whole point is to co-exist with existing agencies and the private fitness centers as well, so we want something that is centrally located but also fills a unique niche,” Mikell said in an interview.
