Paso wants its own Clark Center

An effort is underway to create a performing arts center in Paso Robles on the scale of the Clark Performing Arts Center in Arroyo Grande.

Leaders of the effort and interested citizens will receive insight and advice from Cliff Clark at a meeting May 16 at the Paso Robles Public Schools district office, 800 Niblick Road.

When the Flamson Middle School theatre was destroyed by earthquake in 2003, the district lost its only performing arts facility.

Supporters hope to raise private funds to supplement bond money and build a 600-seat facility with two stages.

The May 16 meeting begins at 7 p.m.
