Fine Line in St. Charles to get new entrance

ST. CHARLES – Fine Line Creative Arts Center may be easier to find after its new entrance opens in mid-May.

The nonprofit center plans to break ground for the new entrance at 10:30 a.m. April 1. The public is invited to attend the ceremony. Even though the center has a Crane Road address, its entrance is currently off Twin Silos Drive.

“We always have been difficult to find,” center Executive Director Lynn Caldwell said.

The center’s entrance will be across from the soccer fields at Primrose Farm, she said.

“We will have signage and an address people can find,” Caldwell said.

The entrance also will expand the center’s special-use permit, which will allow it to stay open later.

“Right now we have a 9 p.m. curfew,” Caldwell said.

The entrance is set to be done by mid-May, and the project is expected to cost $300,000. Funding has come from contributions from the center’s members and the public along with a $20,000 grant from Aurora-based Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley.

“We have all but about $35,000 secured,” Caldwell said. “People can still donate to the project.”
