City Council Considers Lease of Additional Portions of 801 Magnolia for Art Center

At its August 1 meeting the City Council will consider appropriating $75,000 for improvements to the City-owned building at 801 Magnolia Avenue (the former Christian Science Church) for use by the Piedmont Center for the Arts. (See agenda.)

The Council will also consider an agreement to allow the Arts Center the use of approximately one-third of the Educational wing of the property with no additional rent beyond the $1 a year of the previous agreement approved May 2, 2011.  A fire rated wall will be built across the width of the former Sunday School space, cutting off approximately the front one-third of the wing to act as the hallway to the bathrooms.
