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.
