Re: Arts-towers vision revised, Dec. 5.

With regard to the Dec. 3 public-information meeting concerning the arts-towers hub at 152 Street and 19 Avenue – which my wife and I attended – your coverage article does not mention a point, of which, in our opinion, the community needs to be aware.

The theatre-gallery component of this project will be constructed as a shell. Architect Patrick Cotter was quite clear about this in his presentation. Perhaps this information has been in Peace Arch News previously and we have overlooked it.

However, it is now clear that we, the taxpayers, will be funding the construction of these facilities, and that the developer will only provide the space and the shell.

These comments are simply meant as a clarification and do not represent any criticism of the overall project.
