Downtown Parker Library and Cultural Arts Facility
The Town, Douglas County Libraries and Douglas County School District RE-1 recently completed an initial study regarding a proposed Library and Performing Arts Facility in Downtown Parker. The facility would be located west of Town Hall on the south side of Mainstreet.
This study confirmed that there were potential local and regional users for a Performing Arts Center in the Town of Parker. The facility could seat up to 700 people and may include classrooms, meeting spaces and/or black box space. The Performing Arts Facility would share the site, and potentially a building with the Parker Library, which would move from its current location.
Along with the site plan and demand parameters, the study included an initial estimate for the capital costs and the operating costs.
The Town and its partners have now begun the second phase of the project which will further refine the site plan and business plan, including refined cost estimates. Perhaps the most important aspect of the next phase is studying funding options for this facility.
