One Citizen Attends D3 GPAC Meeting
From John Hammer at The Rhino Times:
Judging from the Greensboro City Council District 3 public meeting held at the Cathedral of His Glory on Lake Jeannette Road on the proposed downtown performing arts center, the concern about the performing arts center in District 3 is nearly nonexistent.
One member of the public from District 3 showed up at the meeting, Dottie Cooke, and she mainly wanted to talk about how the downtown needed to be extended up Battleground because she had a shop along the Battleground corridor near the Carousel Cinemas and the businesses along there could use help.
I think most of us will simply vote no on the bond referendum.
The former mayor has been at some of the meetings:
Knight noted that the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) was built with hotel-motel tax dollars, a contribution from Duke University of $7.5 million and a share of the profit from operating the facility. DPAC does make a profit and no city tax funds were used to build it.
Also DPAC is run by a private corporation with the city receiving 40 percent of net income.
Sorry, but the project with current financing is DOA. And the process rigged for a successful outcome is shameful.
