The Goodwill Theatre in Johnson City is looking to expand outside the boundaries of its current buildings.

The non-profit performing arts and training group is looking to raze adjacent apartment houses on Broad Street.

The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York is granting $200,000, the Broome County Land Bank $38,000 and in-kind services worth $30,000 promised by Goric Construction and Delta Engineers.

The Land Bank is expected to take up the proposal at its next meeting.

Once two vacant apartment houses at 55 and 59 Broad Street would be torn down, Goodwill Theatre would initially use the plots for parking before building a center for meetings, performances and studio space.

The development is expected to cost close to $300,000.
