Public Forum to Focus on Proposed Performing Arts Center in Hyannis

HYANNIS – The Greater Hyannis Civic Association will host a public forum later this month to discuss the proposed Oceanside Performing Arts Center.

Representatives of the planned center off Scudder Avenue have been invited to discuss the early stages and scope of the project, possible challenges, and hear suggestions from the public.

The forum is April 28 at 10:30 a.m. at the Resort and Conference Center.

The center is being targeted for the Twin Brooks Golf Course, which is being sold by the property owner.

The owners of the property, the Florida-based Finch Group, and the representatives of OSPAC attempted to get the parcel included in the reapplication of the Hyannis Growth Incentive Zone.

The proposed zone expansion was controversial with concerns from residents about the way it was being pushed forward without public input.

The Finch Group withdrew its request to include the property in the GIZ due to the concerns.

The town renewed the GIZ without the inclusion of the golf course property.

The Civic Association says the property is currently zoned for single family homes each on one acre of land, but that the parcel could be sold for other uses if the OSPAC does not move forward with the purchase.
