The public is invited to attend a joint Arts and Music Commission Meeting regarding use of approved bond funds for creative space acquisition and improvements. Community input at this meeting will help the City determine creative space priorities and inform the process that should be considered for any specific project or uses.
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.
