Fundraisers of proposed Greensboro Performing Arts Center announced this week they’ve received $20.7 million dollars in pledged private support. Proponents of the project want to bring a venue similar to D-PAC to Greensboro. It’s estimated to cost $60 million  and the hope was to raise one third of that through private channels.

Voters in Greensboro will not see a referendum for a new performing arts center on the November ballot.

Jeff Tiberii: A task force has been studying the feasibility of a new downtown arts venue. They had hoped a $20 million bond referendum would be posed to voters this fall. But the City Council ultimately decided it was not comfortable moving the issue forward. Ross Harris is one of 80 task force members working for the arts center.
