Council is still doling out dollars even though the city is sinking. What BS

As most of my readers know, I have a big problem with public funding of the arts.

However, if this is going to happen, McGroarty is a prime candidate. It's a historic gem and has been neglected for a long time. That Paul Krekorian went to bat for his district should be commended.

I certainly do not care what the guy on the terrace has to say about this. He's whining about Barnsdall but Barnsdall has received scores more money from the City than McGroarty (or even the Lankershim for that matter) has ever received. Going back to the Olympics and beyond for sure.

So the guy on the Terrace should move on to another issue, be grateful his end of town has sucked the City's largess for decades while ST and North Hollywood both got the table scraps.

The funding came from ab1290, not city coffers.

Critics don't know that many private efforts to improve the physical space at McGroarty were stymied over the years because it was a city owned building and improvements could only be done by the city. Even something as straightforward as refinishing the floors to keep the wood from splintering and hurting people was a long and major undertaking. If you amoritize what the city has spent on it's public arts and parks facilities here over the last 20 years, it really is such a minor investment.
