Nashua Aldermen to Vote on $15.5M Performing Arts Center

Sep 12, 2017

On Tuesday, Nashua's Board of Aldermen will decide the fate of a $15.5 million proposal to build a performing arts center on Main Street.

The proposal calls for a 500 to 700 seat theater and event center. The project has been in the works for years and has received strong backing from many downtown businesses, the Chamber of Commerce and Nashua Community College.

There’s also a petition going around with more than 500 online signatures. But some aldermen have reservations with the project's cost.

The bond proposal will need 2/3rd’s majority of the alder board to pass.

There’s also a measure up for debate on whether the city should buy the former Daniel Webster College campus for roughly $24 million.
