Re: “Imminent Eviction?

El Centro's lessee commitments in exchange for a $1 lease fee go far beyond "as long as the organization used the space for cultural events and maintained the structure." In the lease the AZ Historical Society (tax payer funded state agency...) stipulates: "The purpose of this contract with El Centro is to preserve and make available to the citizens of Tucson and Arizona a major historical site, the C.O.Brown house, by using the facilities for the development of community cultural programs in art, folk art and History. El Centro will conduct a wide range of public programs and activities which will encourage public use of the site for educational purposes." AZHS also states in it's lease that "A fundamental purpose of the Lease Agreement is that El Centro accepts responsibility for the restoration of the buildings" and "All lease fees shall be for the exclusive use of El Centro for the maintenance and restoration of the property."

It seems that Arts Marketplace is the only one holding up El Centro's end of the deal.
