Up on a roof (in Nashua)
Alderman-at-Large Brian McCarthy has submitted a resolution to release a request for proposals to build the two operation on top of the existing Elm Street and High Street parking garages.
“The rooftop areas of the two parking garages are largely unused, and the garages are significantly underutilized in the evening hours,” states the resolution. “It is important for the future economic vitality of downtown that the arts have a presence downtown, to improve the quality of life for downtown residents and to draw additional visitors into the downtown.”
The city’s lack of a large performing arts center was highlighted last month when aldermen were updated on the progress of various cultural initiatives throughout Nashua.
The Nashua Arts Commission is hoping to begin a new study focusing on a potential arts center within the next five years. The last study was completed about 12 or 13 years ago.
“It is worth the investment to figure out how we create the venues,” Kathy Hersh, president of City Arts, said recently. ‘
