Walton Arts Center officials want taxpayers to help renovate their Dickson Street facility. Arts center CEO Peter Lane requested $8.5 million earlier this month from the Fayetteville Advertising and Promotion Commission. The money would be put toward an estimated $20.6 million construction project, which includes a new lobby, backstage area, administrative offices and expanded Starr Theater at the 20-year-old performing arts center.
