To Members of the Guelph cultural community
You may have heard that the City of Guelph is currently involved in a strategic planning process. From what I have heard, and some minor involvement I have had, I think the vision is quite far-reaching. At this stage, a draft strategic plan framework has just been released for public comment. It's important that the arts community offer its input on the new vision, theme areas and goals associated with each theme. The City is also interested in your ideas for actions in support of the individual goals.
Although you are free to comment on the whole document, as part of the arts community you will be particularly interested in Theme area three: Arts, Culture, Heritage and Education. Within the next few days, you will find the plan at the following website address www.guelph.ca/strategicplan, along with a feedback form that you can submit.
Also, as you will see in the attached ad (it has already appeared in the Tribune), there are two public meetings coming up:
May 23 Co-operator's Hall, River Run Centre
May 24 Victoria Road Recreation Centre
Both are from 7 to 9:30 p.m. You can register in advance in one of three ways:
- on line at the address noted above
- by phoning 519-822-1260 x 2965
- at 6:30 p.m. before the start of either of the two meetings
Please take advantage of this opportunity to continue making positive change in our great City. And please pass the word onto anyone else in the arts community that you think might be interested.
