Petition for Support of the Transfer of the Palace Theatre
from The City of Albany to Palace Performing Arts Center, Inc.
I, the undersigned, support the transfer of ownership of the Palace Theater from the City of Albany to the Palace Performing Arts Corporation, a non-profit organization, for the renovation and expansion of the Theater.
Improvements to the Palace Theater are central to Albany’s Arts & Cultural soul. The project will triple capacity for performance offerings, establish Albany as a center for post-production video and audio production, launch an innovative and inclusive arts education program for children, and breathe new life into one of Albany's most visible historic landmarks. The Palace renovation and expansion will inspire growth. The $65 million vision, to be phased over a period of time, will generate an estimated economic impact of $125 million and create 225 FTE jobs during three years of construction. The project will be funded through government funding, historic tax credits, and private funds at no cost to Albany taxpayers.
