Did the BCPA have only held 3 events during March? Only 3 reports are listed on the City website. All three lost money and had dismal attendance: http://www.cityblm.org/government/advanced-components/documents/-folder-1702
Other events took place according to the event calendar: http://www.artsblooming.org/events/calendar?cury=2019&curm=3&curd=31&curview=month

All of the below are from the 2020 Budget: http://www.cityblm.org/home/showdocument?id=21171

Information about the Creativity Center is on page 165.
Management was transferred to Parks and Rec to pretend it doesn’t have to make money or even break even.
(Wonder why the roads can’t get fixed? Wonder why the gas tax is going up again May 1st? You are looking at why.)
