Arts center ticket tax not headed to general assembly
GREENSBORO, N.C. — A group wanting to help pay for a performing arts center in downtown Greensboro with a ticket tax will have to find another way to do it.
The group wanted customers who bought tickets to the performing arts center to pay a little extra and have the money would go directly to the new facility.
The idea will not move to the general assembly as it did not have the needed support from all senators and representatives in Greensboro.
Ross Harris, with the Performing Arts Task Force, said it is a setback. But instead of giving up, they will try different options.
