The Coppell Arts Center is an exciting project for the City of Coppell, for both residents and local artists. Coppell is a special place to live, work and play, and the Coppell Arts Center will help us fulfill our vision of being a “Family Community for a Lifetime” by increasing access and public awareness to the arts.
At the June 12, 2018 meeting, the Coppell City Council voted six to one to approve the Guaranteed Maximum Price Amendment to the agreement between the City of Coppell and Core Construction, giving the City the green light to begin construction of a new Arts Center located in Old Town Coppell, the City's historic district. At the July 24, 2018 meeting, the City Council unanimously voted to approve additional seats in the Main Stage Theater.
The Coppell Arts Center is planned to be 32,250 square-foot, one-story building, that will include a flexible theater, a main stage theater, a multipurpose room that expands the facility’s use beyond just the arts, exhibit, classroom and office space and a courtyard plaza. Construction is estimated to be completed by November 2019. The project will be funded through the Coppell Recreation Development Corporation (CRDC), a sales tax revenue fund that was established to undertake projects for youth and adult amateur athletics, entertainment and public gathering facilities, exhibition and museum facilities, parks and recreational facilities and more. Coppell voters re-authorized the CRDC’s use of sales tax revenue in the November 5, 2013 election.
