Bond package projects coming out of woodwork for a share of anticipated $596 million
Published: November 2, 2011
Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center $5 million
Center staff are seeking $5 million to fund half of a $10 million project to restore the area’s historic pharmacy on the West Side as well as to help jump start the organization’s planned community culinary center.
Hardberger Park $10 million
A hallmark of the city’s 2007 bond program, which allocated over $30 million to buy the property, Hardberger Park proponents are hoping to get another $10 million, though the city has recommended only $3 million this time. Supporters with the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy say the cash would help get the planned Urban Ecology Center up and running.
Sunken Garden $10 million
Majestic and Empire theater steward Arts Center Enterprises (ACE) wants the city to pump $10 million into its $20 million endeavor to turn the neglected open-air theater into a top-tier performing arts space.
