Arts Center: We’ll Pay for Jesup Green Enhancement

The Westport Arts Center (WAC) today detailed its desire to relocate its headquarters to the top of Jesup Green and said it was prepared to pay to move existing parking and extend the green to the Saugatuck River.

Addressing a breakfast meeting for several dozen community leaders, Lance Lundberg, chairman of the board, said WAC already has commitments for more than $3 million to build a new headquarters envisioned at about 10,000 square feet.

“Ideally, we’d like to be within walking distance of the Westport Library and the Levitt Pavilion,“ he said, adding that WAC was prepared to fund reconstruction of Jesup Green so as to enhance it, not destroy it.

Under preliminary plans, the green would retain its current square footage or increase it by extending it to the Saugatuck, River he said. This would mean relocating parking to a garage under the new Arts Center or a to a new parking deck built behind the current police station.
