GREENSBORO, N.C. -- City Council members will hear more from the Greensboro Performing Arts Center task force Tuesday night as they present a final report of research and plans to build the facility.

Supporters of the GPAC insist it would bring jobs, business and growth to downtown Greensboro in addition to a stronger arts and theater presence.

The projected $60 million project would be paid for in part by city and county funds. About $20 million in funding would be secured through private donations.

Ross Harris, Project Manager of the GPAC task force, says tonight's presentation will touch more on how the facility would be paid for.

The project is an example of spending money to make money, Harris says.  The task force conservatively estimates the GPAC would be profitable after two years.

The presentation will be at the 5:30 p.m. City Council meeting on West Washington Street.
