This sounds great! However, in the past it was difficult and unpleasant to work with the people at the M-A PAC. The manager was not very welcoming and extremely inflexible. Hope that gets fixed because it's another reason for the low interest in using the facility.

Wonderful! The performing arts center needs to be a central place for all...Adults, families and especially our youth.

Life is meant to be enjoyed!

Who sets the rental rates? Why can't these just be set lower? The result is the same, no?
Is this yet another example of really poor financial analysis and negotiations on the part of city staff? We taxpayers foot the bill for many years but the city didn't negotiate a deal that allows local performing groups to have ample time or reasonable rates without a subsidy? This stinks. What is really going on?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
