The YMCA building, located on McIntire Avenue, is no longer standing.
It was torn down this morning and the property's pool also was dug up.
American Pride Power and Equipment Owner, Ryan Dodson, bought the property back in July and says this is the first step to clearing the property so it is no longer an eye sore, but Dodson can't build anything on it until Zanesville City Council rezones it as a commercial property.
Council has rejected the rezoning issue once. Dodson says he plans to bring it before Council again sometime during spring.
