Park Theatre Announces Re-Construction

Trustees for The Park Theatre announced that the US Department of Agriculture has approved a $2,000,000 loan for the re-construction of the Theatre from the USDA Office of Rural Development’s Community Facilities Program.  “The project is set to take an important step, “said board chair Caroline Hollister.  “Thanks to the support from the community, the campaign to raise $100,000 for a $200,000 tax credit match from NH’s Community Development Finance Authority was successful.  Having the USDA-RD loan approved means that it is time to demolish the existing structure and prepare the site for re-construction.  The tax credits from the Community Development Finance Authority, matched by the generosity of the community, make that possible.”  Trustees expect the demolition and site preparation to occur shortly after Thanksgiving and are planning an event to celebrate it.
