Just a reminder, we need your help to support the City Council's vote on the 7th Floor community room renovation at The Warren Building Artspace Uptown Artist Lofts.
As we reported last earlier, the City Council finance committee unanimously recommended approval to the full council to fund the 7th Floor community room renovation at The Warren Building Artspace Uptown Artist Lofts.
The 7th Floor community room will be used for a variety of events that are in line with our city revitalization objectives including art related events, non-for profit activities, First Friday exhibitions, and city meeting and events.
The community room will be an exciting venue to be used by the community. Appropriately located at the top of our city and in the heart of our downtown, it will be an added feature to the already funded $12.5 million dollar rehab of the Warren Building as artist live work spaces which is expected to begin construction next month.
The ordinance for the amount of $300,000 from the Boyd riverboat fund will fund the renovation and this project is expected to make a significant economic and cultural impact to our city. The ordinance is being sponsored by Councilmen Chris Schwanke, Tim Bietry, and Rich Murphy.
The Redevelopment Commission has also approved the funding of the Pedestrian Alley marketplace, so the 7th Floor is the last step in the process of a "Grand Slam" Uptown Artist Lofts project that is lock step with the Lake Michigan Gateway Implementation Strategy.
Please attend this important meeting and voice your support.
