At last night’s Vigo County School Board meeting the board moved forward with a new aquatic center.

The nearly $10 million facility will replace the pools at each of the three county high schools with one central facility.

The board voted to move forward with a bond issue to pay for the construction.

If all goes according to plan the new structure should be ready for use by the 2015-16 school year.

Officials say that the center will feature an Olympic sized pool, a therapy pool about 400 seats.

Officials also claim that this premier aquatics center will bring close to a million dollars annually to the local economy by virtue of the number of events that will be held and the number of people drawn in to compete and watch events.
