Facility Updates and Building Matenience

August 16, 2019

We're almost finished! Most updates are complete with the exception of the women's locker room and men's steam room. The women's locker room will open on Saturday, 8/17 (as scheduled) and the men's steam room needs a couple additional days, and will reopen on 8/19. Thank you for your understanding! 

-Updated 8/16/19 

Happening 8/12-16

Update 7/26/19: Based on findings during Cayuga Wellness Center routine maintenance, some work will need to be completed on our Cayuga Wellness Center facility plumbing. To lessen the inconvenience to our members and the employees of Cayuga Wellness Center as much as possible, this is being planned to occur during the same week as the IHF facility updates in August. Therefore, in addition to the current list of IHF facility upgrades that has already been communicated to IHF members, we will be shutting off the water to all toilets and sinks in the entire Cayuga Wellness Center building on Friday, August 16th at 5 am, and both locker rooms will be completely closed. 

Other than the women's locker room, we anticipate having everything else up and running between 10am-11am, barring any unforeseen or additional plumbing issues arising. 

As planned, the new carpet being installed in the women's locker room has a thermal plastic backing and is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial, and  our contractor is recommending to keep the women's locker area closed the entire day, to allow for the correct installation of the carpet (even after the sink and toilet area re-opens to the rest of the building). 

Please feel free to monitor Facebook and our website for any emergent updates. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes you, and we hope you will take advantage of our Community Corners location during this time.

Facility Updates:

  • Shower ceilings refinished 
  • Brand new women's sauna 
  • New carpeting installed- women's locker room and second floor cardio deck (minimum disruption on cardio deck)
  • Dry wall and tiling updates in locker rooms
  • Painting at both locations 

Pool Updates: 

  • Draining and cleaning
  • Upgrade chlorine feeding system: utilizing the latest technologically advanced system 

*Pools, showers, saunas, and men's steam room closed during this time. Remaining locker room amenities still available for use. 

Thank you for your patience. We will have open campus privileges. Please use our Community Corners location or Ithaca YMCA's pool while under construction.
