Falls City Prichard Auditorium discussion

(KLZA)--Robin Ankrom addressed the Falls City Council session Monday evening, concerned about the possibility of major changes to Prichard Auditorium through a renovation project, including rumors the balcony seating might be removed and the building even demolished.

Ward I Council member Don Ferguson said tearing down the facility has never been an option but said some upgrades to the building would be nice.

Ankrom suggested a public forum be held to provide the public with more information about the entire concept of creating an events center / fitness center in the community. She said there are a lot of misconceptions about the project in the public.

4th Ward Council member Derek Leyden said that local gossip contributed to the amount of misinformation the public has heard and that the possible plans had been discussed in open session.

Since the initial discussion on upgrades to the Auditorium, the City found out, the facility did not qualify for grant monies that would have been used for upgrades.

Leyden also said while a public meeting could be held, he thinks it would be a good idea to wait and see what the steering committee comes up with.

The discussion concluded with no action taken.
