Arts Center Task Force first must raise enough money to build it within 2 years

The future home of a Tri-City performing arts center will be at Vista Field in Kennewick — if the nonprofit can raise enough money to build it there.

The Port of Kennewick and the Arts Center Task Force signed a letter of intent in March so the arts nonprofit can buy 2.2 acres at the center of Vista Field for $10,000.

The task force has two years to raise the money.

The Arts Center Task Force must show that 75 percent of funding to complete the Vista Arts Center is in hand or committed before the sale can be finalized.

The port has agreed to entertain no other offers for the land for two years.
