News Release - Statement by Mayor Lovely Warren on Performing Arts Center

City of Rochester

News Release

(Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018) — “Today we were informed that Tom Golisano is withdrawing his funding commitment for the Performing Arts Center project.  While this development is disappointing, we remain committed to this important, job-creating project and its potential to transform our city center.   As part of the larger ROC the Riverway program, the ‘Riverside Performing Arts Center Project’ has never been more viable and the opportunity to work with Governor Cuomo, the State of New York, organized labor and the private sector to invest in a project that will deliver more than 1,000 needed jobs for Rochester residents is too important to give up.”
