Findlay City Planning Commission today approved a plan to renovate Central Middle School auditorium into a $10-million Marathon Center for the Performing Arts, to open in fall 2015 on West Main Cross Street.
Construction is expected to begin in March with a public event and celebration. The center will include a renovated auditorium, an art gallery, education center and black box theater for receptions and events.
The existing building will be expanded on the west and north sides. The north side addition will be for backstage areas for dressing rooms, storage and offices. The western addition will include a new lobby/lounge area.
