How is the construction of the Arts Center being funded?

The $17 million project will be primarily funded by the Coppell Recreation and Development Corporation (CRDC), a sales tax revenue fund that was established to undertake projects for youth and adult amateur athletics, entertainment and public gathering facilities, exhibition and museum facilities, parks and recreational facilities and more. Coppell voters re-authorized the CRDC’s use of sales tax revenue in the November 5, 2013 election.

Because the CRDC is almost entirely funded through sales tax, the majority of fund revenues are collected from non-Coppell residents that commute to the City for work or business reasons and from business to business transactions.
