On Wednesday, Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, Deaconess Aquatic Center (DAC) Task Force members, and other stakeholders celebrated a major milestone for the DAC.

Crews hoisted the last beam into place at the DAC during Wednesday's "Topping Off Ceremony," marking the symbolic completion of the structural phase of the project.

"If you think back, we made a large investment on the street-scape, we made a large investment here, and now we have an anchor on the south end of North Main Street, which is the new housing project," said Mayor Winnecke. "So what you're seeing is a revitalization and investment in Jacobsville that will be a real game-changer."

The ceremony took place at Garvin Park, where the new swimming facility is located.

Officials say the DAC project, which is meant to provide an upgraded location from the Lloyd Pool for both competitive and recreational swimming purposes, is expected to be completed in Spring 2021.
