CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The City of Chattanooga will shift their responsibility of Tivoli Theatre and the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium to a newly-formed non-profit, the Tivoli Theatre Foundation.

The move is expected to ensure the “sustainability of both historic buildings” according to a news release from the mayor's office.

The city will retain ownership, but the operation of the venues will fall to the new foundation.

In the works is a “Memorandum of Understanding” between the city and the Tivoli Theatre Foundation which should outline the new areas of responsibility for each partner.

Both historic buildings play host to a variety of performances in downtown Chattanooga.

Details on the new agreement are expected to be announced during a news conference Thursday morning.
