PORTSMOUTH — The Music Hall has submitted a request to the Department of Housing and Urban Development Field Office in Manchester for the release of $1 million in Economic Development Initiative (EDI) Funds.
Prior to the release of federal funds, the new Music Hall Loft must undergo environmental review. These reviews normally look at construction and its affect on historical properties, wetlands, airport clearance and toxic sites. Since The Loft would be a renovation of another building, it will be categorically excluded from National Environmental Policy Act Requirements.
