Newton Downtown Community Development, a nonprofit group formed to carry out the recommendations of the city’s 2009 Downtown Master Plan, requested $150,000 from the Newton City Commission Tuesday to help redevelop the Historic Fox Theatre in downtown Newton.
The request came during a city commission work session Tuesday.
The Historic Fox Theatre of Newton Inc. has developed a concept for making the Fox operational year-round, enhancing the performance and greenroom areas, and using the adjacent south building as a complementary dining and entertainment venue, a city news release stated.
