Two fundamental propositions are undeniably true:
- Music Hall is a gem in Cincinnati, architecturally, historically, and as the home for Cincinnati's world-class symphony orchestra.
- Music Hall is outdated and falling into disrepair.
- Music Hall is an asset of the City that historically has been governentally-supported by the City, not the County.
- If the City had properly invested in the facility and maintained the facility over the years, it would not be outdated and falling into disrepair.
- Finally, if the City had properly prioritized its use of capital dollars for the past eight years under Mayor Mallory and Finance Chair Roxanne Qualls, it could easily have afforded its obligations to Cincinnati's Music Hall.
