Lisa Bullwinkel brought to the Coordinating Committee’s attention that there is a City Council-approved Arts and Culture Plan with the following features, some of which are applicable to the Civic Center project:

  • Artist housing and live-work units.
  • Small to midsize, mixed-use performance spaces designed for theater, film, dance, literary arts and musical use.
  • Gallery space to support the visual arts.
  • A centralized Community Arts Center to be used for arts classes, performances, visual art exhibitions, film festivals, poetry readings, youth activities and support services.
  • A portable stage, assistive listening systems for the hearing impaired and seating for community events and festivals.
  • Arts districts could be used citywide as a mechanism to promote and cultivate the arts and increase community participation.
  • Protection and enhancement of existing arts facilities.
