Stamford Residents Invited to Attend Forums on Performing Arts Center

Written By Editor on 5/7/14 | 5/7/14

STAMFORD - In 2009 Western Catskills Community Revitalization Council, Inc. (WCCRC) acquired the property formerly known as the Stamford Performing Arts Center, located at 76 Main Street in the Village of Stamford.  At the time, WCCRC believed strongly that having an arts venue in the center of the Village was important to the Village’s continuing revitalization and economic growth.  Five years later, WCCRC believes that this is still true,
 
The arts center will once again be available for community use as of July 1, 2014.  The complex includes two venues:  a two-story Carriage House, which includes a 99-seat performance theater on the first floor and a workshop / studio space on the second floor, and what is locally referred to as, “the coffee house.” The coffee house is a small performance venue in the Main Street storefront and can accommodate up to 50 people. 
 
WCCRC is inviting residents of the region to attend a series of community forums to discuss ideas about how these special performance venues can be used to benefit the area in the future.  Community members have many fond memories of performances that have been held at the site over its long history as an arts center, including plays, concerts, workshops and art shows. 
 
There are two forums scheduled and everyone is invited to attend to share their thoughts.  Both will be held in the Community Room at the Stamford Village Apartments at 125 Main Street in the Village of Stamford.  Join the staff of WCCRC on Wednesday, May 28 at 7 p.m. or on Saturday, May 31 at 2 p.m. to contribute your ideas.  An open house at the venues will be scheduled for the month of July, where community input will be shared.
 
WCCRC is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit Rural Preservation Company with a mission to cooperate with local, state and federal governmental and civic bodies in aiding, assisting and fostering the planning, development, renewal, and improvement of housing and other buildings for the primary purpose of revitalizing communities in their service area.  WCCRC’s service area covers the towns of Harpersfield, Kortright, Middletown, Roxbury and Stamford in Delaware County; Blenheim, Broome, Conesville, Fulton, Gilboa, Jefferson, and Summit in Schoharie County, and Ashland, Halcott, Hunter, Jewett, Lexington, and Prattsville in Greene County.
