Last week the Citizen Bond Committee voted to recommend that the Frisco City Council add $10 million Art Center to a larger bond proposal that the council will consider. Heading the the effort is a local piano teacher, Tammy Meinershagen who has been involved in bringing a cultural and art center to Frisco since 2013.

Originally the proposal was for $20 million, but that has since been cut in half. The ambiguity surrounding the project left some committee members nervous, but a majority did vote to send it though.

The idea for an art center is not a new one as there were talks for a Collin County Art Center as recent as last year, but those plans are not going forward at this time.

Currently Frisco has a 120 seat Black Box Theatre in the Frisco Discovery Center that the community can use for productions. The Frisco Community Theatre performs there regularly.

The proposal must now pass the Frisco City Council and then be sent to the voters for approval. Last May Frisco voters approved $775 million for the Frisco ISD. These bonds will likely lead to higher property taxes for home owners in Frisco.
