Data Behind Our Project
The Legacy Center Task Force commissioned Convergent NonProfit Solutions to conduct an extensive study of the community support and economic feasibility of building the Legacy Center. Interviews were conducted with 185 Johns Creek and area community leaders. These interviewees are virtually unanimous that the arts are an essential part of Johns Creek’s quality of life. They are proud of the high level of activity in arts education and performance. It makes sense that there should be a centrally-located landmark building devoted to the visual and performing arts.
