Proposition F

PROPOSITION F WILL FUND $14 MILLION FOR REPAIRING AND IMPROVING CULTURAL AND PERFORMING ARTS FACILITIES:

  • 9 of Dallas’ 23 cultural facilities will receive needed repairs from new roofs to updated electrical systems. Many of these buildings are historic landmarks
  • The show must go on! Dallas arts facilities – from the world famous Meyerson Symphony Center to the neighborhood Oak Cliff Cultural Center – must be maintained in order to host and entertain hundreds of thousands of patrons each year
  • These buildings represent the diverse and rich culture of Dallas. From the region’s largest museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, to the Bath House Cultural Center’s One Thirty theater productions for senior citizens, these institutions enrich the lives of residents of every age from all areas of the city
  • Dallas boasts the only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed theater in the world – and it will receive improvements
  • Sammons Center for the Arts – the 100-plus-year-old former water pumping station – is now home to 14 performing arts groups and hosts more than 50 other arts organizations that regularly use the space for meetings, rehearsals performances and auditions
  • The homes and businesses of the historic Dallas Heritage Village (Old City Park), have escaped the wrecking ball over the years, but they can’t escape the ravages of age. The buildings need ongoing maintenance and repair
