Help Save the Historic Chautauqua Amphitheater
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: The Committee to Preserve the Historic Chautauqua Amphitheater

Help us stop the proposed demolition of the historic Chautauqua Amphitheater!

Sign the petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/save-the-amphitheater-dont-demolish-it

From the petition:

For more than three years the Chautauqua Institution stated that it was pursuing a “rehabilitation” and “upgrade plan” that would improve our historic Amphitheater. The Amp has been referred to as the “sacred space” and “beating heart” of a community where the core of American life and ideals have been shaped for more than 120 years.
 
In fact, as has been finally been made public by Chautauqua Institution and the Buffalo News, the Amp will be demolished (save for the organ loft) as early as next September. Our historic treasure will be no more, replaced by a new $30 million replica.

This controversial plan is wrong and unnecessary. We must stop the Amp’s demolition and develop an improvement plan that also preserves its historic integrity.

We can do that with your help! 

Please join with other in the Chautauqua community and regional historic preservation organizations by signing this online petition to the Chairman of the Chautauqua Institution Board of Trustees. (For more information, including the updated list of ALL signators, go to www.savetheamp.org)
