Support Adventure Church in the purchase and preservation of the Tower Theatre

Dear Council Members and Mayor of the City of Fresno:

I support Adventure Church purchasing the Tower Theatre.

I understand that Adventure Church does not wish to change the primary use of the theatre, as they have publicly stated, but will continue to operate the theatre as a venue, available to the public to rent, while also using the building incidentally to operate their Constitutionally protected church services on Sunday mornings and the occasional Wednesday night. 

I believe this can be achieved in a way that benefits the community economically as a whole and does not require a full rezone of the property in order to avoid any unintended negative consequences to surrounding business licenses, present or future.

Adventure Church not only values the more than 80-year history of Fresno’s Tower Theatre, but wants to help preserve it and to ensure that it continues to be a community asset and an enjoyable venue for performing arts, concerts, educational events and more. They are adamant that this will still be the Theatre’s primary purpose under the ownership of Adventure Church.

Adventure has demonstrated their commitment to the venue by investing well over $100,000 in upgrading outdated production infrastructure with plans to continue reinvestment to match their ambition of the Tower Theatre becoming the most sought after mid-sized event venue in Central California. This continual reinvestment will have a direct positive impact on surrounding businesses with the increase of non-church events.

Our short-term goal is to bring 10,000 signatures to our city leaders in show of support. Would you please partner with us in this journey by sharing this petition with as many people as possible?
