Wayne Theatre Alliance ready for ownership?

Posted by Stephen on March 12, 2007


During the Waynesboro City Council meeting on Monday night the WTA provided an update on the alliances attempt to raise money from the private sector to bring the Wayne Theatre back to life.

The plan, which hinges greatly on the ability for the WTA to capture 1.2 million dollars in tax credits, is progressing. They have received pledges of more than 1.2 million dollars and they have 18 thousand dollars in hand. They have a letter from the Industrial Development Authority expressing their desire to participate with the WTA on the downtown project.

In a true reflection of progress, the WTA asked that City Council begin to make preparations to transfer ownership of the Wayne Theatre property over to the WTA. Councilman Frank Lucente moved to expedite the transfer of the building to “as soon as possible.”

Citizens in the audience vocally called for the transfer of the property to take place as soon as possible. There were further concerns being expressed by bystanders that the funds being discussed by the WTA were in the form of pledges rather than funds obtained. No citizen commented on the matter during the time allowed for public comment.
