Arts and Culture Master Plan
Professional Planning Services - Cultural Planning Group
Community Outreach and Participation
The process will be community-driven and lead to actionable results. CPG has placed a high priority on public engagement and creativity as they look to provide recommendations for future opportunities. It is expected that the results from this process will feed directly into future planning and development projects while influencing current quality of life issues related to arts and culture.
The public outreach process will be extensive and gather broad, meaningful public input. Key components of the public engagement process include:
- Stakeholder and special interest interviews.
- Public meetings and creative community feedback sessions.
- Electronic outreach including an interactive project website, email communication, surveys, social media, etc.
- A Creative Leadership Team (CLT) that will serve as a steering committee and sounding board for the project comprised of representatives of City staff, Parks and Recreation Commission, Healdsburg 2040 Arts and Culture workgroup, residents, and stakeholders.
September 2019 Update
The Arts and Culture Master Plan consulting team from the Cultural Planning Group (CPG) were in town July 30 – August 1 for their initial site visit to Healdsburg. During the visit CPG had an opportunity to tour the city, meet with stakeholders, have conversations with community members and City officials, and view numerous arts and culture assets throughout Healdsburg. On Wednesday, July 31, CPG and Community Services staff held a joint workshop with members of the Healdsburg 2040 Arts and Culture working group and members of the project steering committee, known as the Creative Leadership Team. 28 community members attended the workshop which laid the groundwork for the planning process ahead.
The Creative Leadership Team held their 2nd meeting on September 5 and met with Kristen Madsen, Director of Creative Sonoma.
The team from CPG will be back for additional visits and community feedback sessions in September, October, and November. Project updates will be posted on this page throughout the process.
