WORCESTER – On Tuesday, the City of Worcester and the Architectural Heritage Foundation reached an agreement on the development of the Worcester Memorial Auditorium.

According to today’s announcement, the City and the AHF have executed a Land Disposition Agreement [LDA] for the property, creating a cooperative site agreement and allowing the AHF to begin creating designs for the Auditorium to make it handicap accessible by today’s standards. 

“We are grateful to the City of Worcester for its support and look forward to continuing to work together to preserve and revitalize the Aud for communities in the city and beyond,” the AHF said in a statement. 

The AHF agreed to purchase the building last June and have since been in negotiations with the City. 

According to the AHF, the organization’s first steps will be to reach out to Worcester’s historical community, as well as the Massachusetts Historical Commission and the National Park Service.
