Performing Arts Center milestone slated to begin after November 1

     Construction crews are nearing full-scale demolition on the east wing of the Performing Arts Center as the area is cleared to increase parking for events. Simpson construction anticipates the major work on this to begin after November 1.
     In preparation for the demolition, the decorative architectural features on the exterior of the building were carefully removed and will be reused in the final renovation. Memorial bricks have already been removed for relocation at the renovated facility.
     Shortly after demolition is completed, a small supply of rough bricks from the structure will be made available for patrons who would like a keepsake from the historical building. They will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
     The district will publish information on social media the day before bricks are made available detailing the location and hours that patrons may come get a brick or two.
     For questions about the project, please contact the District Office at 316-322-4800.
