Lebowsky Center may not need to change owners to use grant money for rebuilding.
OWOSSO, MI — A $380,000 grant, part of the Michigan Small Cities Initiative awarded to downtown Owosso, to help in rebuilding the Lebowsky Center originally was supposed to be made if the city or the Downtown Development Authority owned the theater instead of the Owosso Community Players. But the city requested and was granted a waiver so the OCP can continue to own the theater which was gutted and partially demolished after a fire last year. The grant will be used to help rebuild the walls and roof of the theater and construction is expected to begin in the spring.
