MY REPORTER ARTICLE
And here's another little blurb in the My Reporter section. While I am happy that folks are curious about the site, I am a bit concerned that the My Reporter reporter didn't do a better job at reporting. The sign referred to in the blurb had a website posted (this site) where accurate and up-to-date information and contact information about the site and plans could be gleaned. To clarify, TheatreNOW's intent is NOT to build a legitimate theatre for full length plays, but there will indeed be theatrical perfomances in space and a stage area. Site plan and rezoning applications have been submitted.
