The ARTery Party is this evening, 6-8:30pm at Karpeles Museum (1st & Laura Street).

It's a fundraiser for The ARTery, the proposed arts & cultural hub in the historic Armory building in the Downtown/Springfield area, which would serve the entire city.

Silent auction, many artists, music, food & drink. Tickets are $10. Should be good time for a good cause - I know many people attending the Hob Nob straw poll are going to the party afterwards.

Here we are, about a decade later. Still spinning wheels. Unforseen renovation costs..... who would have thunk?

Securing financing will definitely be a challenge on this one. No matter how much money is put into it, until something is done with Hogans Creek, it's still prone to being flooded at any moment.

This one should just go ice until 2030. By that time, the creek should be done-ish, and the value of the property may be enough to where incentives aren't needed.
