Petition for Funding for the California Center for The Arts

This petition had 148 supporters

The Center for the Arts, Escondido is more than just a theater. It’s a common bond that unites a diverse community — a place where education, personal enrichment, and entertainment are held in equally high regard. The Center’s services and programming offer something for everyone in our community, and now is our time to come together in support of this true Escondido gem.


The undersigned citizens of Escondido believe that the Center for the Arts, Escondido is a public asset of this community that requires the City’s attention as a priority equal to fire stations, the library, City Hall, and parks. It has been built with taxpayer dollars pursuant to voter approval, and must not be allowed to deteriorate or be diminished by inadequate maintenance. Therefore, we lodge this formal request with the City Council.

Direct the City Manager and staff to prepare a budget, for the 2017-2018 fiscal year, that allocates $3 million to address and resolve deferred maintenance issues for the CCAE, and commit, on the record, to the expenditure of funds in following fiscal years sufficient to maintain the Center in a manner that matches best management practices in the industry and keeps the promises made to the voters when they approved the Center.
