Advertiser Staff

Gov. Linda Lingle has released $250,000 to help finance construction of an event pavilion and new roof at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center.

The money also will be used to purchase lights, sound equipment and technical equipment.

The center is in the midst of a multiphase improvement and expansion plan that will cost an estimated $4.4 million.

The state has awarded the nonprofit center three other $250,000 grants over the past five years to improve portions of the facility. The center has raised other funds from private and nonprofit sources.

Construction is slated for completion in June.
