A committee of the Danbury City Council is recommending Danbury modify a lease with The Danbury Music Centre. The organization wants to take over the rest of the old Danbury Library building on Main Street. The organization is looking to expand its office and rehearsal space, beyond the Marian Anderson Recital Hall.
The Danbury Social Services Department used to occupy part of the first floor of the building, and a portion of that space will house the Cultural Commission. The Commission would be able to hold their monthly meetings in the building, in a space to be designated by the Music Centre.
The Danbury Music Centre's long-term, $1 per year lease, runs through 2024. The part of the lease dealing with the second floor of the building was signed in 2014. If the Council approves the committee's recommendation, the end date of the lease would not change.
