TFAC improvements

Published 9:43am Wednesday, May 1, 2013

To the editor:

My wife and I attended the Jeremy Kittel Band Main Stage event recently and we saw for the first time the completed improvements to the outside area of the Tryon Fine Arts Center.

Even though it was nigh time, the lighting was adequate to see and appreciate what has been done. I was even more impressed than I was with the drawings of the plan when I first saw them a year or more ago.

The expanded onsite parking has been needed for so long and the plan does an exceptional job of getting the maximum utilization of the available space. And in addition, the changes make the baptist church parking lot much more convenient and available for TFAC events.
