Parks board OKs plan to sell Freimann Square parcels

May 9, 2019

The city’s parks board approved an agreement today paving the way for Arts United to buy two parcels that are now part of Freimann Square downtown.

Plans call for the expansion of the Arts United building, and officials said this week a wing to the north and west of the existing building at 300 E. Main St. could be added within the next decade. The land that would be purchased is owned by the city and managed by the Parks and Recreation Department.

Board members unanimously approved an agreement giving Arts United the option to buy the land. It now goes to the City Council.
