Two city representative had this item on the Monday, April 13, 2020 special city council agenda:
Discussion on renovating the Abraham Chavez Theater and/or the civic center with funds authorized by the
“Museum, Cultural, Performing Arts, and Library Facilities” ballot proposition of the 2012 Quality of Life bond
election rather than building a new multipurpose performing arts and entertainment facility in the Union Plaza
If you read the emails between the city’s bond counsel and various state officials this is pretty much what the original idea was.
The project morphed into an “arena” with an unknown cost.
Isn’t it time that we stop all city spending except what is absolutely necessary?
We deserve better
