Auditorium Survey

9/14/2020

If you have not already completed the Auditorium survey please do so at your earliest convienance.  It will help with the future of Alma.

Back in December of 2019 the City announced that it had applied for a matching grant to do a feasibility study on what improvements are needed to get the Auditorium back into top shape.  The City has been approved for this grant and are taking the first steps.  We recently met with an Engineering firm and an Architectural firm to look at the building to see what needs repaired, replaced, and upgraded.  We have had a public meeting to present what was being looked at and to get ideas from the public.  We are now in the process of doing a survey https://kwiksurveys.com/s/vu4pIhmt to get some answers from you, the users of the Auditorium, to understand just how you want to see the Auditorium in the future.  All this information will be compiled and recommendations will be made, along with estimated costs..  After all of this is completed the City will decide if they wish to move on to step 2, which would be implementing the improvements.  Again, grant money is available to help with this step as well.  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, with the 50% matching grant to do the improvements we can spend quite a bit of money and have a very nice building to be proud of even more than we are now.  Please click on this link and take the survey it will take a short amount of your time and help the users of the Auditorium for a very long time: https://kwiksurveys.com/s/vu4pIhmt
