By Letter to the Editor on June 11, 2017.
On behalf of the Performing Arts Centre Advocacy Group, I would like to thank Mayor Spearman and council for the vision they displayed with their unanimous vote of support for a new Performing Arts Centre.
We appreciate the difficult choices that they make in deliberating the Capital Improvement Program. But, with the Performing Arts Centre listed as a priority for the past 17 years, we are delighted to see it taking centre stage in the next CIP! With funds committed by council, the size, location, operating model and architectural design will be completed and the new Performing Arts Centre will be “shovel ready” by 2022.
We want to also thank city administration for their advice and assistance over the past two years as we navigated our way through the appropriate applications and requirements for funding. We also wish to acknowledge past advocates of a Performing Arts Centre and the tremendous public support we have received. We hope each of you will continue to join us as “Ambassadors of the Arts” over the coming years because our advocacy work is not done. Working together, we will ensure our new Performing Arts Centre will make Lethbridge the envy of cities across Canada.
