The Wrecking Ball
March 09, 2012 | 08:58 AM

Looks like the save the date announcement will be coming sooner than later in regards to what's next for the Geneva Theatre.....an invitation to The Wrecking Ball. It is NOT the place of the city to kick in taxpayer funds or TIF to run a commercial entity like the theatre. Maybe go to referendum to see if the residents want the park district to to take it on but then everyone needs to realize the financial impact it will have for years to come to keep it operational. If the theatre business is as lucrative as the artists claim then the time is now for them to put their money where their mouth is....kick in the coin and go to town running your arts center (likely right in to the ground then crying for taxpayer bail out again in a few short years). The value of that theatre property is in the land and lets see redevelopment proposals begin!
