Even as Howard Community College prepares to open its $20 million visual and performing arts center, the Columbia Association's board has turned down a proposal to donate $200,000 to the facility. Some board members were concerned about adding to the association's debt, though they stressed the importance of close ties between the college and the community, and the importance of the arts.

What formal role, if any, do you think the Columbia Association should have in relation to the community college's arts programs? More broadly, just how much should the association be involved in the financial support of county civic and cultural institutions?
