"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $500,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the Signature Theatre's Capital Campaign."

(This amendment provides $500,000 from the general fund in the second year to the Signature Theatre's Capital Campaign to fund a new cultural facility in Shirlington, Virginia. Signature's partnership with Arlington County on this project, unique in the history of Arlington, will create an economic engine and cultural centerpiece to sustain and drive the continued growth of this area in South Arlington. The new theatre in Shirlington, larger and more accessible than the current space, will significantly expand that audience, and also serve many more students and seniors through educational programming and special student and senior matinees."
