According to an e-mail news release, the WAC facilities committee has accepted a staff recommendation to pursue a purchase/partnership agreement with the AMP. Is this a sign the committee is leaning towards a Fayetteville site for expansion, or is it an attempt to strengthen its presence in the community in the event a site is chosen in another city?
The committee also recommended targeting 15 site proposals for more research and review, including ones in Fayetteville, Bentonville, Rogers and Springdale. Those proposals can be seen at http://www.waltonartscenter.org/new_expansion_plans/site_proposals.
Both recommendations will be presented to the WAC board on Sept. 14
