At the Feb. 10 meeting, the City Commission authorized Mayor John Dailey to execute an agreement between the City of Tallahassee and Leon County regarding programming for the Cascades Concert Series at the Capital City Amphitheater at Cascades Park.
The Commissioners also approved a new amphitheater support space as well as clarifications about the ownership and maintenance of the amphitheater at Cascades Park. The clarifications state that the ticket office and visitor center at the park will be operated and managed by Leon County for a 30-year lease.
The new amphitheater support space, called The Parkview at Cascades, is an 11,000-square-foot multi-purpose event facility. The space will serve as a rental venue for public use. It includes a 3,523-square-foot event ballroom, a board room, a warming kitchen, a green room, artist dressing rooms and production offices.
The Parkview at Cascades’ construction is estimated to be completed in early 2021. It will be owned, managed and maintained by the City of Tallahassee.
…and after the build is complete, County Commissioners will only allow 25% capacity, 3 mask minimum plus social distance. Word on the street, they bought the card board cutouts used at the Super Bowl to place in the seats.
“ The Commissioners will also vote on approving a new amphitheater support space and make clarifications about the ownership and maintenance of the amphitheater at Cascades Park.”
I’m not clear on why there seems to be a confusion as to who “owns” the amphitheater and park. Should not those who purchased the property, financed the construction, and will further finance its ongoing operations in perpetuity be recognized as the “owners”?
Will they soon meet to clarify who “owns” my property, my truck, my clothes, and the food I purchase?… how about who “owns” the money in “my” bank account or who “owns” Tallahassee Reports… does that also need to be clarified by our local elected officials?
… just asking for a communist friend is all… ?
“The clarifications state that the ticket office and visitor center at the park will be operated and managed by Leon County for a 30-year lease.” ……………………… SO, will Leon Count Staff run it or will Leon County Contract it out to a third party buddy of a Commissioner?
