The School Town of Munster is suspending its pursuit of the property that houses the Center for Visual and Performing Arts.

After a comprehensive assessment, the district decided that the town of Munster needs time to evaluate the property and programming needs.

“This decision reflects our commitment to prioritizing responsible and informed decision-making to best serve our community's interests,” the district announced in a press release.

The district conducted an evaluation of the property at 1040 Ridge Road. Factors in the district's decision include:

  • How the property might be used with current infrastructure
  • Whether current programming and services could be maintained
  • Operational costs
  • The district's short- and long-term needs
  • Community input
  • The benefits and negatives that might come with the acquisition

The property is owned by the Community Foundation of Northwest Indiana Inc., which opened the 72,660-square-foot facility in 1989 to support cultural awareness in the Region, according to the CVPA website.

The CVPA is home to the Theatre at the Center, South Shore Arts, the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra and Trama Catering.
