Crump renovation may hinge on city ownership, maintenance


Follow The Republic:


Renovating and reopening the historic Crump Theatre could require the city of Columbus to own and maintain the facility.

That's one early observation of Danielle McClelland, executive director of the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre in Bloomington, who is beginning her work to create a five-year business plan for the Crump.

McClelland said she could see a nonprofit group operating and managing the Crump, under city ownership. That's how the Buskirk-Chumley operates.

The city could take on a business model that calls for ownership of the theater, but nothing is certain until McClelland's business plan is complete, Mayor Kristen Brown said.
