Q Will PARC increase the Council’s operating budget?
The funds used to maintain the current building will be dedicated to PARC. In addition, through an arrangement with Scouting’s National Supply Division, the rent for the expanded Scout Store space will cover a substantial portion of the building and property maintenance beyond the square footage of the store. Lastly, funds from the sale of the West Chester property will go into a dedicated PARC endowment, the interest from which will cover property and building costs. Between the three sources, little (if any) additional costs should remain for the Council’s budget to cover.
