BICAS sent out a message yesterday urging support for a proposal created by the Warehouse Arts Management Organization, which would make WAMO the lease holder of the building BICAS currently resides in.
Here is an excerpt from the email:
WAMO is an Arizona non-profit corporation whose mission is to preserve, protect, program and promote the Tucson Historic Warehouse Arts District. WAMO, BICAS and the artist tenants have put together a unique team with a collaborative approach to insure an open and transparent building improvement and a building management plan. The team’s goal is to put a stop to the current poor management practices, neglect of building maintenance and lack of even basic health and safety code standards. WAMO, through their proposal and with BICAS as the chief tenant, will reverse this and create an urban arts and educational center we can all be proud
The proposal will be submitted on Thursday April 29, 2010 and will soon after be reviewed by Mayor and Council.
You can help by letting your City of Tucson Council Member know how critical it is that BICAS remains a vital part of the downtown warehouse district in our current location in the Citizens Warehouse building. Please call or write Mayor and Council asking for their support of this important proposal.
You can read the rest of the email and download a form letter on the BICAS website.
I am working on a story about the proposal. Look for that soon.
