Arts Centre: WV Pressing Ahead -> Site Selection
West Van council has set as a supposedly “Strategic Goal” the building of a new Arts Centre!
In light of the estimates to date, with building costs ranging between $34 and $38 million, and the operating costs running at $1.2 Million per year (if you believe Staff estimates) or more likely closer to the Polygon Gallery’s operating experience in North Van costing $3.7 Million per year … (much of that subsidised by taxpayers), ,, it seems a valid question that should be asked –
“In the year of Covid recovery – Does West Van need an Arts Centre?“
