Get ready to get your swim on, Montauk. The Cultural Arts and Aquatic Center will break ground in early 2019 after its developer, the Montauk Playhouse Community Center Foundation, secured $6 million in funding last week, the nonprofit announced. Its goal is $8 million, Patch reported. Half of the project’s current funding came from private donations, and the town of East Hampton matched the amount with another $3 million. Once complete, the center will be a performance and events space and will feature a 25-yard lap pool and a recreation and water therapy pool. [Patch]
