Port Theatre Update
FYI

Haslet, TX

#1 Jul 4, 2012
(From "Around La Porte)

After prolonged negotiations and multiple inspections, the buildings purchase by Alfred & Carla Ricks has been finalized!! The theatre is a family business with sons Kolby, 22, and Alford, 18, helping with the renovations and working in the theatre when it opens.

Renovations are planned to be starting soon! Extensive repairs need to be completed, licenses must be obtained and taxes must be paid. The theatre decor theme will be consistent with the 70's.

The theaters new name, Weiner-Robinson Theatre, is in honor of the Ricks' mothers, Alma Robinson and Gebe Ricks.

Booking musicians for the Grand Opening weekend has already begun. Barring any complications the Weiner-Robinson Theatre will host its first event by the end of the year.

They plan to bring national artists and special events to the city while also making the theatre available for corporate, public and private events.

And you can be damned sure that the City did nothing to make this project easy or reasonable. Even though bringing this old theatre building to life will be a cornerstone standout for the City of La Porte, the bureaucratic government and especially the permit department will "diddle" themselves at the prospect of making this process as difficult as possible.

Oh... but you can bet if it were a Port project or some other kind of bullshit like that, they'd be bending over backwards giving them "incentives".

Why do they insist on making it hard for small businesses... and do nothing but make it easier for big business??

Who ever you are I vote for you for a spot on the city council. There will be an election next May for 3 spots. Zemanek, Moser and Martin's terms expire. All 3 must go away.
