New amphitheater facilities dedicated at Barrett Station

Precinct 2 Commissioner Sylvia Garcia cuts the ribbon to open a $1/2 M ampitheater in Barrett Station on Sept. 30. Built with a federal grant the ampitheater is to provide an outdoor musical access and dance facility to the Barrett Station Community.

Eric Ross, Chairman of the Riley Chambers Barrett Station Community Centers spoke the welcome to a gala grand opening of an ampitheater in Barrett Station last Thursday. Garcia recalled seven years ago opening the new Barrett Station Community Center facility and related to opening the new facility for the area. “Quite frankly right now the County budget is hurting just like you budget back home and today I would not be able to plan to do one like this today. Right now you are the only ones to have a facility like this and it is going to be that way for a while.”
