When: 6:30-8:30 p.m. , Wed., Aug. 9

Where: Martin Luther King, Jr. Multipurpose Center, 1028 NE 14th Street

Similar to the initial community workshop in May, the upcoming workshop is designed to hear from neighbors about their needs, interests, and expectations regarding a cultural arts center in East Gainesville.

A survey also is open to gather input from neighbors. The survey is accessible online through this link. Copies of the survey also will be available at the workshop.

The input will provide vital information in a study by AMS Planning & Research Corp., a national arts management consulting firm hired by the City. The AMS study will help determine the feasibility of either creating a new cultural arts center or renovating an existing structure in Gainesville.
