Council approves architectural fees for Avalon work

Grand Junction City Council approved a laundry list of items Wednesday night during their meeting.

Most significant was the board’s approval to spend $110,476 for architectural service designs toward renovation of the city-owned historic Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St. The move marks a turning point for council members to invest money in the entertainment and arts venue. Council members said they would revisit investing more dollars into the Avalon later this year while creating the 2013 budget.
