Re: “How the city made its Parcel 5 choice

The RBTL has been touting its 501c3 designation. Wasn't this based on its theatrical events. Now that it has decided to expanding its bookings to comedians, bands, lectures etc. shouldn't those be taxed as they compete with other local businesses? This seems like an abuse of a tax exemption. Their spokesman said they may book up to 180 events a year and to date less than 50 or are Broadway musicals. This will be less than 30% of activities. This tax exemption needs a hard look.

In the city and state kept the 100 million dollars they could probably get $5 million dollars a year in interest. Will the theater return this much to the city or will it continue to reduce our economy by the millions of dollars it sends out of the area in artists fees.

Mr Golisano you have done great things for the areas you have been involved in but please reconsider and build a right sized project. One that supports local artists. Investing in people not buildings is what brings an area to life.
