COMMUNITY NEWS / Covering Orange County's 33 Cities

Yorba Linda

October 30, 2000|Deniene Husted, (714) 520-2508

Forget taxes and road improvements, support of the arts has become one of the hot issues in this year's City Council campaign.

The Yorba Linda Arts Alliance will host a candidates forum at 10 a.m. Saturday to find out where the 10 council hopefuls stand on issues related to promoting local music, dance, literature and theater programs.

Discussion is bound to focus on the Forum Theater in Yorba Linda, which the North Orange County Community College District has put up for sale. The City Council's decision this year to provide a $40,000 city subsidy to the Yorba Linda Civic Light Opera has also sparked debate within the community on whether arts programs should be given the same financial support from the city as youth sports programs.

The forum will be held at the Travis Ranch Activity Center, 5200 Via de la Escuela. Information: (714) 996-1960.
