SPAC concert venue getting upgrades

Posted:

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - The main gateway to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center inside the state park is getting a long-overdue makeover.
    
Work has begun on a $900,000 project to improve the main parking lot off the Route 50 entrance to Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Spa State Park.
    
Rose Harvey, commissioner of the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, says the parking lot's crumbling conditions were a visible sign of the deterioration of New York's park system. The lot is the main entrance to SPAC, a popular venue for summer concerts as well as ballet and orchestra performances.
    
The parking lot will be repaved and new landscaping will be installed. The project is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2014 SPAC season.
