Piedmont Council for the Arts Collecting Feedback on Cultural Plan
The Piedmont Council for the Arts is collecting feedback on the first plan to develop the cultural community in Charlottesville and Albemarle County.
A steering committee finished a draft of the "Create Charlottesville" plan after months of meetings with artists and audiences.
The plan's six priorities include recommendations for enhancing arts education in schools and marketing the region as a cultural destination.
Sarah Lawson, the executive director of the Piedmont Council for the Arts said, "A lot of great ideas and strategies have already started to be implemented in the community as a result of the conversations that have taken place in the planning process. But now that the plan is going to be official and finalized, I think a lot more outcomes will be realized and a lot of work in the community will start getting done."
The committee is asking the public to review the draft plan and submit suggestions by September 2. Click here for more information.
