There was standing room only at Lansdale Borough Hall Wednesday night as a divided council approved a task force report about the future use of the old Performing Arts Center on West Main Street. The recommendations include forming a non-profit group to operate a community arts center in the building as well as putting together a business plan for the venue. Other details like the schedule for finishing the rennovation of the facility still remain to be determined even though there was plenty of discussion about the merits of doing the work in phases instead of getting it done all at once. Council President Matt West as well as Council members Denton Burnell, Dan Dunigan, Mary Fuller, Steve Malagari and Mike Sobel voted to approve the task force report. Council Vice President Paul Clemente voted no along with Council Members Rich DiGregorio and Jack Hansen.
