Lebowsky Center plans still being worked on
OWOSSO, MI — Despite recent news reports about rebuilding plans for the Lebowsky Center, The Owosso Community Players have not yet made concrete decisions about rebuilding the burned out theater. Right now, the immediate plans are to remove the top six feet of the west wall above the Chemical Bank building on whose roof loose bricks from the theater’s west wall fell onto last week.
It would take millions of dollars to rebuild the theater and the Shiawassee County area alone can’t raise that much money. The OCP is hoping that part of the rebuilding funds will come from grants from state and national agencies.
When seasonal load restrictions are lifted, which is expected shortly, then the heavy equipment can move in to remove the unstable wall above the bank and the process of inspecting the building to determine what can be saved can resume again.
