Proposed Adirondack Aquatic Center Seeks Donor Support

Proposed Adirondack Aquatic Center Seeks Donor Support

MALTA — On July 2 the proposed Adirondack Aquatic Center (AAC) updated the Malta Town Board on the project’s progress and unveiled a promotional video. In attendance was Vincent DeLucia, Supervisor for Town of Malta, the Malta Town Board, Kara Haraden, President of Adirondack Aquatic Center and Mike Relyea, Vice President, Adirondack Aquatic Center. The proposed project will be built off Route 67 in Malta.

The multi-use, year-round facility will hold four pools, including a 50-meter Olympic-size pool, of varying lengths, depths and temperatures for diverse swim programs that include learning to swim, exercise and rehabilitation, as well as training and competition. Plans also include spectator seating, classroom areas, meeting rooms, aquatic-focused exercise and weightroom, studio/multi-purpose area, pro shop, concessions area and locker rooms.

“I’m in very strong support of it,” Vincent DeLucia said, Supervisor for the Town of Malta.

“Not only would it provide great opportunity for not only life-saving skills and recreation, and tremendous competition throughout the Northeast, but it would have a dramatic positive economic impact in the entire area. Not just the Town of Malta but certainly the county of Saratoga and even the entire Capital District region. When you have college and high school swim competitions

throughout the year, many of the people are coming from great distances and they would generally stay in the area, as far away as Albany, Schenectady, probablyeven Glens Falls and so forth,” he added.

Adirondack Aquatic Center is a nonprofit organization that was founded to fill a need for year- round aquatic services that address the health, wellness, recreation, safety, competition and training needs of the local residents, communities and organizations.

According to DeLucia, who’s been in talks with representatives from the AAC for nearly two-and- a-half years, the next closest aquatic center similar to the one proposed, is Greensboro, North Carolina. He added that representatives from Greensboro Aquatic Center said that in the first year, the economic impact in that entire region was close to 40 million dollars.

“Now that doesn’t mean that could be guaranteed here but it is certainly a pretty good point,” DeLucia said.

The Adirondack Aquatic Center continues to attain fiscal support for the proposed 80,000-square-foot indoor aquatic facility. So far, Adirondack Aquatic Center has secured $2 million of the estimated $22 million needed to build the aquatic center.

In the meantime the AAC continues to seek support from donors.

“They’re moving well in that direction. They’re close to closing in,” he added.
