$2.8 Million for an Amphitheater Site in Anderson?


Anderson Mayor Terence Roberts says the city council will take its first vote Monday on whether to spend $2.8 million to turn the old Belk site into an outdoor amphitheater.

Roberts said the council should be able to move forward with the second and final reading on the bond ordinance for the project at its Aug. 22 meeting.

The $2.8 million would be spent on changing what are now an overgrown lot and an empty building on Whitner Street in downtown Anderson into an open-air pavilion, an outdoor amphitheater and park complete with an interactive waterfall.

The vacant property sits behind a wooden fence on Whitner Street across from the historic Anderson County Courthouse.
