The Santa Clarita Arts Commission has unanimously agreed to a three-year contract with the Santa Clarita Community College District for public use of the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center on the college campus.

The city of Santa Clarita helped fund the construction of the Performing Arts Center with a $2.4 million contribution for its construction. In the past, the city has signed an annual memorandum of understanding with the college district to allow the center to be available for public use.

The Arts Commission voted unanimously at its meeting Thursday night to send a three-year contract to the Santa Clarita City Council for final approval.

As a result of the new contract, the city will receive two free days at the Performing Arts Center to host civic functions each year, according to the agenda. In the third year of the contract, the city will receive four free days.

Rick Gould, director of Parks, Recreation, and Community Services, said the free days for the city haven't been part of previous contracts.

The contract is for $70,000 for the first two years and will increase to $75,000 for the third year, according to the Arts Commission agenda.

The community will be able to use the Performing Arts Center for 21 percent of the days the college and the center are open, according to the contract.

The college will assume sole responsibility for coordinating the use of the Performing Arts Center in the second year of the contract.

The current contract will expire June 30, 2012. The new three-year agreement will begin July 1, 2012, if approved by the City Council.
