Board receives findings from performing arts center feasibility study

HOT SPRINGS – The Hot Springs Board of Directors heard a presentation Wednesday regarding a feasibility study for the development of a performing arts center in Hot Springs, Ark.

Dan Martin of Market & Feasibility Advisors, LLC (MFA) of Austin, TX and Chicago, IL, presented their findings in a 104-page study,concluding that the project is “market feasible” but not financially feasible.
