Community Theatre Needs Assessment

On October 22, 2019, the City Council awarded DLR Group a contract to conduct a Community Theatre Needs Assessment.  The assessment will evaluate operations and infrastructure and will provide options and costs for two scenarios; a major renovation of the facility that would transform it into a regional performing arts center and a conservative renovation that would maintain the community-focus of the facility.
