BACKGROUND: The Denver YMCA submitted their official notice of contract termination at the end of August 2021 due to Firestone, CO being located outside of their service area. The contract with Denver YMCA was agreed for Cove Operations through December 31, 2021, yet due to the boiler plate termination clause in the agreement the YMCA was allowed to give 30-day notice.

The District Management Team engaged in conversations with Northern Colorado (NoCo) YMCA and Carbon Valley Parks & Recreation District (CVPRD) for proposals for Cove Operations through the remainder of 2021 and into 2022.
