$12M Bond Creative Space Community Survey

We want to hear from you! The $12M Bond for Creative Space Community Survey is collecting your feedback as a springboard for discussion while a plan is formulated on how best to move forward with utilizing the $12 million. We will also consider the latest results from the Cultural Arts Division's ongoing Creative Space Survey to help inform the discussion. A process for using these funds must be established before any specific projects or uses can be identified and knowing what the community sees as priority needs will help guide this process.
