Save the Chautauqua efforts continue

Posted:

Shelbyville – A meeting is set for Monday focusing on the future of an historic building.

 

The city has put forth several efforts to save the Chautauqua Auditorium. Monday night at 7 residents and city leaders will meet with the Army Corps of Engineers at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center. They will discuss potential future use for the auditorium.

 

The community has raised more than 33 thousand dollars to save the building from the wrecking ball back in March.

 

It has been in a state of disrepair for years, and expensive insurance forced the city to search for answers. The building was estimated to cost at least one hundred fifty thousand dollars for structural repairs.

 

 A full restoration will cost an estimated 1.7 million dollars.
