I'm a commissioner on the Alexandria Commission for the Arts. Please be aware that Alexandria has few mid-size performing arts spaces available for reasonable rental to our city's arts community. Arts groups must frequently rent space outside of the city; let's keep this income source here. If school auditoriums could have public entrance access, that wouldn't compromise school-wide security and just allow passage for the audience to the auditorium, rentals could remain more reasonable for arts groups. These spaces are currently heated, air-conditioned, cleaned...and frequently empty. Please consider performing arts rentals when designing these publicly funded spaces; thanks. Separate issue: as an avid cyclist, too, please consider adequate bike parking and safe bike lane access to school entrances; thanks!
