Lincoln City City Council gives the new folks running the City Cultural Center another year without having to pay rent.
The Lincoln City City Council was so pleased to hear how the city’s cultural center is doing with new leadership and restored financial strength, they gave the group another year’s free rent which will thereby be poured back into new cultural offerings at the center, just north of the D-River wayside.
Nikki Price, co-owner of the wildly popular Oregon Coast Today publication, took over the helm last year as Executive Director and along with their new center board and chairman John Collier, the facility is now in the black. Memberships are up, income from music, theater and other artistic programming is up. Price and Collier say they have worked hard to win the center an impressive list of new grants that are going for center improvements including a new monument sign out front, upgrading its plumbing, new auditorium sound system, supporting Native American cultural activities and sponsored special concerts and more.
The council expressed appreciation to Price, her staff, board and volunteers for the impressive display of leadership and hard work at restoring the center’s role as the center of cultural activities in the community. Mayor Dick Anderson said he’s very impressed with what’s happening at the cultural center, adding he hopes it keeps growing. He said forgiving their $2,400 a month in building rent will help them accomplish all that much more for the community.
