Pittsburg approves $45,000 loan for Colonial Fox Theater

PITTSBURG, Kan. — The Colonial Fox Theatre Foundation has until Oct. 31 to generate enough pledges to match a $500,000 federal grant for renovations to be made to the historic building in downtown Pittsburg.

Tuesday night, the City Commission moved the Foundation $45,000 closer to its goal by approving a forgivable loan on the recommendation of the Economic Development Advisory Council.

“We will be two-thirds of the way to our goal with these dollars,” Vonnie Corsini, executive director of the foundation, told the commission. “We assure you, we will be good stewards of this investment.”
