WESTERLY — Maureen Fitzgerald sat in her High Street office on the second day of the new year feeling positive about 2019 and what it holds for the $12 million Ocean Community United Theatre project.
“We are very confident that the shovel will go in the ground in 2019,” said Fitzgerald, the chair of The United board of directors and president and chief executive officer of the Ocean Community YMCA.
“We’ve raised another $3.6 million since June,” said Fitzgerald, “which makes us confident we can start construction this year.”
