Options To Be Discussed Tuesday
In ‘Conversation’ At History Center
ONEONTA – The deteriorating Oneonta Theater has reached a “critical stage,” Bob Brozowski, Greater Oneonta Historical Society executive director, told the GOHS’ annual meeting this evening, and a “Community Conversation” has been scheduled for 8 a.m. Tuesday in the History Center, 183 Main St., to discuss how it may be saved.
Kathleen Gasperini, a theater expert who has a summer home in Schenevus, will be among the attendees, Brzozowski said. All interested parties are welcome.
Tom Cormier, who bought the building for $225,000 in 2009 and put it on the market for $925,000 last year, has been unable to secure a buyer, even while dropping the price to $725,000, and is running out of options, according to conversation at this evening’s meeting.
“We can’t lose that theater,” Brzozowski said, and he hopes ideas will come out of Tuesday’s meeting to keep the building secure until its future can be defined.
