WICHITA, Kan. (AP) An advisory committee is recommending that Wichita build a new performance arts center rather than renovate its current center.
The 12-member citizens committee made its recommendation to the city council Tuesday, and suggested the city hold a tax referendum to fund it.
Mayor Jeff Longwell says he is still interested in remodeling the 50-year-old Century II center. And he said he would prefer any new performance arts center be privately funded.
