QUALITY OF ENVIRONMENT / PUBLIC REALM
The “Howard Theatre Sub-district” will be a vibrant center focused upon a revived Howard Theatre. The Theatre will be restored to approximate its original and historic facade and will be well-programmed with local and national performers who attract day and night time patrons. Performances recall the time when, in the Theatre’s heyday, legendary greats like Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie and many more honed their artistic craft and set a standard for excellence in the performing arts. Performances will be affordable to patrons who will be a range of local residents, visitors and tourists.
