Several people contacted The Gazette after news that Kirkwood Community College dropped plans for its campus to be the new home for Old Creamery Theatre, a not-for-profit professional theater founded in Garrison in 1971 and based in Amana since 1988.
Don Primus said, “How about the theatre on the casino land? Nice asset to downtown.”
Several people advocated leaving the land as is, or turn it into some sort of park.
Josh Kissling: “Why are people obsessed with putting things in? Just let it be an open space.”
Nikki Dietze: “community gardens. dog park. open green space.”
