The Nashua Board of aldermen voted Tuesday to approve a new $15.5 million performing arts center. All but one of the aldermen voted for the complex, which is set to go in at the Alec’s shoe store building on Main Street.

Late last year the Board voted against the project, with some citing cost as a factor.

Marjorie Bollinger Hogan is a musician and part of City Arts Nashua, a local non-profit that promotes the arts and has applauded the new center.

“We're excited, we're thrilled. We have a great, thriving arts scene in Nashua and this going to make it all the more the better," Hogan said.

Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess endorsed the resolution. The city will now issue bonds in order to pay for the roughly 500-seat theater.
