CWMP, better known as The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, and the Township are discussing the possibility of entering into an agreement to build, maintain and operate a Performing Arts Center near the current location of the Pavilion.
At its May 22, 2019, Board of Directors Meeting, The Woodlands Township unanimously approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The Center for the Performing Arts at The Woodlands (CWMP) regarding the possibility of creating a Performing Arts Center in The Woodlands.
In the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), members of the Pavilion Board of Directors and The Woodlands Township agree that they desire to explore further options to ascertain whether the construction, maintenance and operation of such a Center is a viable project for the Pavilion and Township to jointly pursue.
The MOU is a non-binding approach such that due diligence may be conducted by the parties to determine viability of the joint development of the Center.
"This is a major step in furthering the development of performing arts in The Woodlands," said Township Chairman Gordy Bunch. "It feels right that on the day after acknowledging our founder George Mitchell's 100th birthday this week, we are moving forward with one of his wishes to have a performing arts theater in The Woodlands."
