City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz says he'll update the Human Services Committee tonight on plans to give Piven Theatre a larger role at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center.
But he says that despite talks "over the better part of a year," no final proposal has been developed to bring forward to the City Council.
Bobkiewicz says the general concept is to have Piven renovate a portion of the space in Noyes in return for a long-term lease from the city.

The City of Evanston is asking residents to voluntarily abide by alternate side parking restrictions today to help crews with snow removal efforts.
Since today, Feb. 4, is an even-numbered date, that means people should park only on the odd-numbered side of residential streets.
Evanston has received about 2.5 inches of snow so far, with flurries expected to continue into the afternoon. City crews will be clearing streets into the evening.

Hollywood, Broadway, Cannes. We know their movies, and follow the rise to fame of dozens of actors and actresses. Many of us may even dream of making it big in the world of entertainment. But rarely do we stop to consider there might be just one degree of separation between us and the glamour and fame of Hollywood. However, if you grew up on the North Shore, chances are that you are indeed only one degree of separation from a talented Hollywood actress, a published author and recognized playwright.
