GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The task force in charge of bringing a performing arts center to downtown Greensboro concluded its community planning and design process Thursday. Now the group has more than 1,000 comments from the public on what they want out of the center.

The comments, posted over the last three days on hundreds of sticky notes, range from input on the ideal location of the venue, to what acts should come there, to the importance of access for people with disabilities.

Geoff Lynch, the master plan architect hired to help with the process, said the feedback was helpful.

"All the basics of neighborhood traffic, where the good restaurants are -- we got a tremendous amount of input, and what it really did is we learned a hell of a lot, and it had a big impact on our understanding of each of the sites," Lynch said.

The GPAC Task Force will make a preliminary presentation to the Greensboro City Council using these comments in mid-November.
