We recently held our second public input meeting concerning the City Auditorium feasibility study on what improvements are needed to get the Auditorium back into top shape.  We have received good input from the public and the survey that was conducted.    If you would like to see a slide presentation of the meeting please click here.  Near the bottom of this page you will find "Relevant Documents" and under that heading you can see the proposed "Ground Floor Floor plans", "Second Floor Floor plans", "Exterior Rendition", "Interior Rendetion 1", Interior Rendetion 2", and "Interior Rendetion 3".

Grant money will be available to help with the items the public feels need to be completed.  The Auditorium is a landmark in Alma and personally I feel it needs to be saved and brought back to its original glory.  We all know, and expect, that the recommendations will be expensive, however the building is worth it.  It is a City and Historical landmark.  You will not find the character this building has in any new building.

 

The City of Alma has two facilites that are available to be rented for a variety of activities and your get togethers or celebrations.  Rent is on a first come first serve basis and the City Clerk keeps a running calendar of when the facitlites are available.

The Johnson Center offers a full kitchen, restrooms, and a 42' x 70' banquet room with 22 tables (30"x96") and approximately 115 chairs.

The City Auditorium offers a full kitchen, restrooms, a balcony, a stage, is approximately 60' x 110' (overall dimensions), has 30 tables (30'x96") and approximately 200 chairs.  Roller skating and roller blading are also allowed in the Auditorium for an additional $50.00 charge to cover liablity insurance.
