Online Survey: Proposed New Goals and Policies Supporting MI Arts & Culture

May 22, 2018 - The Mercer Island community has valued its deep arts and culture tradition for many years, as exemplified by the City's Arts Council, an extensive MI School District curriculum, Youth Theatre Northwest, and an impressive assortment of public art, Island-based galleries, and local artists.

The City's Comprehensive Plan, the 20-year vision statement reflecting a community's aspirations, currently lacks specific goals and policies supporting arts and culture. With that in mind, the City has embarked on an engagement process to determine how arts and culture should be made an integral part of its vision. 

All residents should watch their mailbox in the coming days for a postcard describing the proposed New Arts and Culture Goals and Policies drafted by the City's Arts Council -- now we're seeking the community's input to improve the draft language. Please take a quick online questionnaire to share your opinions.

Next steps will include review by the Planning Commission, with more opportunities for public comment, at its June 6 (6:00pm, City Hall) and August 29 (6:00pm, City Hall) meetings.
