(This amendment provides $200,000 the first year from the general fund to the Academy of Fine Arts for renovation of the stage and 110-foot fly tower of the Academy of Music Theatre, built in 1905. Over $10 million has been raised for the renovation. This investment will signal the re-opening of the theatre which would be the foundation for a civic center in the region. The fine arts facility will enhance quality of life, tourism and business and workforce recruitment.)
