Kelly Cook of one of the Principals with KDC Associates presented information on plans for the improvement of the Comanche Trail Amphitheater to the several people who gathered at the Big Spring Council Chambers for the second open forum with the Amphitheater Improvement Board.
"What we showed everybody is a very preliminary study that we're doing, primarily, to start getting an idea for what kind of improvements need to be done and what kind of money needs to be generated to fund the project," said Cook.
"We're about to start on a process of truly trying to understand the site and looking at all of the possibilities and all of the improvements," stated Cook. "It'll be a several month process with a lot of community involvement before we are able to come back and comfortably show everybody a semi-finished drawing that we're designing."
During the presentation, it was noted that the local Amphitheater is the second largest outdoor amphitheater built by the Civilian Conservation Corps but it is also very underused. As in the first Open Forum, Cook noted that improving the amphitheater has the potential to create a draw of people from the surrounding area that would result in an increased amount of revenue for the City of Big Spring.
Barney Dodd, President of the Amphitheater Improvement Board, noted that the next step for the board would be to begin soliciting donations for the improvements. To watch the entire open forum, check out out the Facebook page for the Amphitheater Improvement Board or our KBest Media Facebook page.
