The Financial Feasibility Study is underway!
Project Name is selected - Legacy Center at Johns Creek

A facility dedicated to visual and performing arts and culture in Johns Creek has long been a conversation among arts professionals, arts supporters, elected officials and other leaders in the community. Three studies since 2016 have shown the need for such a center in Johns Creek. The latest was a 2018 feasibility study by Webb Management funded through the Johns Creek CVB with Hotel/Motel tax revenue.

Financial Feasibility Study Convergent Nonprofit Solutions has begun the financial feasibility study and are expecting to present their final report before Thanksgiving this year. The 18-member Task Force, formed by the CAAJC to lead this project, is working closely with Convergent Nonprofit Solutions to expedite completion of the study and will continue working on other aspects of the project.

Funding for the financial feasibility study has been provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, due in large part to the efforts of District 1 Commissioner, Liz Hausmann. On March 25, 2019 the Johns Creek City Council passed a resolution in support of the Cultural Arts Center project . . . Learn more
