Another Meeting On Future Of Th'YARC Scheduled Next Week

Town council and members of the board of directors of the Yarmouth Arts Regional Council have another sit-down scheduled.

Th'Yarc sent out requests for proposals recently looking for properties suitable to build a new multi-million dollar arts centre.

Mitch Bonnar, president of the board, says discussion around possible locations will continue.

"I received a letter from the town requesting a meeting on March 29th. It included a discussion document on possible locations for a new arts and cultural centre in the town."

Bonnar says the new centre should have been built 8 years ago.

"But that's sort of gone by, so we'll go with the immediate future."

The town has maintained in the past that a new arts centre must be built in the downtown.
