State will contribute $500,000 toward performing arts center in Federal Way

Performing arts center

State Sen. Tracey J. Eide, D-Federal Way, has successfully secured $500,000 in funding toward a Federal Way performing arts center. The funding is included in the state’s 2008 Supplemental Capital Budget.

“A new performing arts center is critical to the continued economic and civic development of Federal Way. During this year of frugal state spending, I’m very pleased that we were able to make a commitment to the City of Federal Way for the project,” Eide said.

It has yet to be determined the exact use for the money and the precise cost to build a performing arts center in Federal Way.
