Next Planning Meeting Saturday for Fire Station Community Arts Center

The business plan outline will be presented and discussed as will fundraising opportunities.

The next planning meeting for a is from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 17.

The business plan outline will be presented and discussed and there will be a report on fundraising opportunities. Mike Haeg, who made the initial proposal and is hosting the meeting at his home at 305 Holmes St. S., is encouraging people to attend and bring ideas. There will also either be a report or visitors from Beyond The Yellow Ribbon, a group that supports returning vets.

Also on the agenda is a bit of work on the growth model for Fire Station Arts, which will involve starting with the building as is and imagining what it will look like for the first year. Think programming, classes, events and opportunities beyond the walls to the community.

We experienced an enormous tax increase on our commercial building this year. Is now really the time to fund "feel good projects" that will cost the city more money in maintenance staffing etc. Don't get me wrong, I am all for art centers and can see the point of view that it will bring in visitors. Maybe the city should sell the property at a big discount to someone who will promise to develop the site. Doing so will generate cash cash from the sale of the building, create new jobs, increase traffic from those wishing to patron the business , and will continue to generate revenue for the city. Or we could have it be a burden on the city from now to eternity.
