A new nonprofit group, Brooklyn Community Development, has taken on the task of turning the Brooklyn Opera House into a 250-seat landmark facility.

Restoring the Brooklyn Opera House means:
• More flex space for community functions
• More traffic for local businesses and restaurants
• Tax benefits and economic growth
• A stronger outlook for Brooklyn’s future

Brooklyn Community Development is an Iowa nonprofit corporation pursuant to Chapter 504 of the Code of Iowa. The Organization’s primary activities will be renovation and operation of The Brooklyn Opera House and operation of the Michael J. Manatt Community Center. Brooklyn Community Development will serve to encourage economic development, and promote the arts and the social welfare of the community it serves.
