A Few Questions for our Candidates

a) A theatre is an essential part of what makes a community.

b) Historical places need to be preserved if a community wants to preserve its character.

c) Budget can always be found for projects like the renovation of the theatre. Allocating it is a matter of priorities.

d) If I am (re)elected, I'm committed to getting this project off the ground.

4. We realise that councils have to deal with many different issues. On a scale of 1 to 10, what priority would you give to a community theatre for Ku-ring-gai?

6. How familiar are you with the plans for the re-building of Marian Street Theatre into a contemporary space for the performing arts?

7. The DA has been approved, and the first step for the new Council will be to agree on the funding, for which there are a number of alternatives. To prevent further delays as well as a further increase in building costs, the safest and quickest option is to start borrowing the money at 1% from the State Government. That way, building can start while other funds are identified. How likely are you to support a funding plan that allows for building to start latest by the second half of 2022?

8. Would you like to have a coffee with one or two members of our committee in the next few weeks, to learn more about the work we do and the plans for the theatre?

10. Thank you for your responses! On Thursday the 2nd of December we are hosting our next event, a "Soiree" at the Killara Golf Club from 7:30 - 8:30pm. We hope you will be able to join us. There will be time for you before and after the official program to mix with the public and hear their opinion about the theatre and the arts in Ku-ring-gai! Can we count you in?
