— The town of Cary is getting ready to dive into a new $40-million aquatic center.

On Monday, the Wake County Board of Commissioners approved $10 million for the project.

The money comes from the hotel-motel tax.

The center would have several indoor and outdoor pools, a diving pool and hockey rinks.

The project is somewhat controversial in Cary. A private group is moving forward with its own plans for a similar center.
