Arts Advocates Applying for State Designation in April 2008
FROSTBURG, Md.—The public is invited to help Frostburg take one step closer to finalizing an application for a state-designated arts and entertainment district by offering their input on where the district should be located. Frostburg’s Arts & Entertainment Committee has selected two options, and is looking for feedback from members of the community as to which geographic location would best serve the City of Frostburg.
Those who want to add their voices and inform the Committee’s final decision should stop by Frostburg’s City Hall on E. Main Street from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23, through Friday, Jan. 25, where maps of the two proposed options will be on view and they can fill out a ballot indicating their favorite. Interested parties may also indicate their preferred option by sending an e-mail that includes their choice for the district and their contact information to email@example.com. The public will have one last opportunity to offer opinions on which geographic location should be selected during an open forum at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 28, at Frostburg’s City Place, 11 Water St. The deadline for receiving all community input is 7 p.m. Jan. 28.
The A&E Committee has been gathering information and ideas over the past few months to determine the best options for geographic boundaries of the proposed district. The group is a collaboration organized by FrostburgFirst, a community-driven program established to foster economic development and cultural growth in the City of Frostburg. The Committee must complete an application for the A&E district and submit it to the state by April 2008.
