Stewart Ledbetter of NBC 5 reported Mayor Weinberger’s announcement that he would pursue a Request For Proposals process to secure a future for Memorial Auditorium that did not involve demolishing the historic and beloved civic structure. Mayor Weinberger’s statement, released the day before a public assembly to be hosted by the All-NPA (Neighborhood Planning Assemblies) to discuss the disrepair of Memorial Auditorium, said, “As we pursue its revitalization and adaptive re-use, we should prioritize how the building will continue to serve that vital function for our community. I look forward to beginning a robust process in late fall to determine the building’s future,” the mayor said.
