City of Amarillo working towards reopening Globe News Center

Progress is being made to restore the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts (GNCPA) following significant water damage from a broken sprinkler head. The damage occurred Dec. 24 and was primarily on the north side of the facility.

“Restrooms and the lobby area sustained most of the damage from the flooding,” said City of Amarillo Director of Facilities Jerry Danforth. “Fortunately, we were able to respond quickly and minimize the damage. Repair and restoration work is underway. The city is adamant that the facility be restored to its preexisting level, if not better. The Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts will again be an outstanding facility for the public.”

The total cost of restoration for the GNCPA will be about $950,000, including flooding restoration and remediation costs. The majority of the cost is covered by insurance. 

COA has a $250,000 deductible which will come from the city’s insurance fund. 

Total restoration of the GNCPA will take four to five months.

“The goal is to be operational with the ability to host some events by the end of March,” said Danforth.
