Lanesboro City Council to consider
Center for the ArtsBy John TorgrimsonMore than 50 people turned out for a public information meeting on Saturday, February 23 to learn more about the proposed Lanesboro Center for the Arts. The meeting, which was held at the Lanesboro Community Center, was sponsored by the Regional Arts Center Commission, which was set up in February 2000 by the city of Lanesboro to study how a regional arts center might be operated in the town. The city received $100,000 from the Minnesota Legislature in 1999 to conduct the study.

The Commission has recommended that the city of Lanesboro agree to participate in the project as owner of the center. The Lanesboro City Council will formally consider the Commission’s recommendations at their council meeting tonight.

The plan calls for purchasing the former Cheese Factory building on Parkway Avenue in Lanesboro’s downtown for the site of the center. It also proposes buying the vacant lot north of the White Front Cafe for parking. The cafe would not be a part of the center.

The Cheese Factory would be demolished and a two-story 19,000 square foot center would be built to house the operations of the Commonweal Theatre Company and Cornucopia Art Center. The center would have a 225 seat theatre, two galleries, classrooms and offices for both organizations. The center would also have a sculpture park on the west side of the river.

While the city of Lanesboro would own the property, a new non-profit organization would be set up to operate the center. The seven member board of directors would consist of four members from the operating organizations, (two each from Commonweal and Cornucopia), and three members appointed by the city.

The complex would cost $4,000,000 of which $1 million in bonding has already been allocated from the state of Minnesota. A fundraising campaign would be set up to raise the balance of funds from individuals, businesses and foundations.

"We hope to raise 80% of the monies in the first 18 months," Hal Cropp, the Executive Director of Commonweal and a member of the Commission, told the audience. All monies must be raised before the state will release the bonding funds. The bonding money must be used by 2004 or reverts back to the state

The center will be self-supporting and no city funds will be used for the operation or maintenance of the facility. Revenue would be generated by leasing the use of the facilities to .....
