The city entered into a lease and purchase agreement for the land in August of 2021 and has been using it for parking at the theater since then. The agreement was contingent on the city securing funding for about $2.7 million before December 31st of this year.

The money to purchase the land will come from a $2.5 million bonding bill from the State of Minnesota, and the balance will come from sales tax dollars.
