between the University, the University Musical Society and

The UMS and the RSC have been wonderful in making
this a meaningful experience for students on the undergrad-
uate level," Williams said.
Williams added that the collaboration is a five-year pro-
gram that will lead to future performances by the RSC in
Ann Arbor.
In conjunction with the RSC's visit, nearly 80 educational
events are planned, including special exhibits, interviews
with the actors and director, and acting workshops.
Most of the special events are free, and the sponsoring
*anizations have worked to bring down the cost of the rest
of the events, including the performances.
"It's a very expensive company to bring so we worked
very hard to make it affordable for students," said Sara Bill-
man, UMS marketing and promotions director.
Ticket prices, normally $216, have been cut in half for
"For four plays by the world's greatest classical theater
company, this is a bargain,"said Williams.
Students also agree that this opportunity is indeed a
bargain. "When you consider what you're seeing, it's
definitely worth it," said Rainwater. "I don't know if

concerns community members had.
Another concern voiced since the beginning
of the project has been the issue of safety in
switching one-way streets over to two-way.
Iraola said that there may be additional hard-
ships brought on by the renovation.
"The added traffic increases potential for
added conflicts," Iraola said. "It is a side effect
of urban life - we have to enhance visibility,
sight lines and obey all regulations to minimize
such conflicts."
George Patak, a crime prevention officer for
the Ann Arbor Police Department, said after
studying the area extensively the proposal
would result in a needed better atmosphere for
students as well as community members.
"Some people are able to just come into town
and leave," Patak said. "The students of the
University have to go to that area. ....We're not
going to move Angell Hall."
As well, Patak said the use of two-ways
streets will lead to increased safety on the
"It will slow things down, and if you go
slowly you have more people looking over you"
Patak said.

Patak added, "The lighting is terrible right
now. ... Good lighting has the biggest impact on
deterring crime."
The proposal included the addition of numer-
ous new lighting fixtures in the area to increase
visibility at night.
Pollay said the proposal will be continue to
be fine tuned until the final proposal is present-
ed to the DDA in March. At that time it will be
submitted to a construction committee, as well
as numerous city planning committees, and
eventually must be passed by city council.
Mayor John Hieftje said last week that he
supported renovating the State Street area.
"It might be easier and slow things down,"
Hieftje said. "It should be pedestrian friendly
and it's not irreversible."
The money for the project does not come
from the city budget, Pollay said, but instead
from a fund collected through the DDA's tax
increment finance plan.
The fund allows the DDA to collect con-
struction taxes from buildings in that area "for
use to recycle in public for private benefits."
Pollay said the estimated cost of the project is
$5 million.
The DDA hopes to start construction by
June, and expects it to take about a year, Pollay
