Can Elgin IL Afford a Concert Hall?

The city of Elgin, Illinois has hired consultants to take a hard look at whether the city actually needs and can support a new concert hall. "What it boils down to is this: What does a concert hall really mean to the city and at what cost, and can the money be raised? A task force of Elgin officials has explored the possibility of building a performing-arts center with a potential price tag of $60 million."
