Thank you for your input and engagement with the District’s first Cultural Plan. OP is working with the project team to develop the best possible Cultural Plan. To do that, we are investing a few more months to get the plan right. During this time we will be working to develop an investment roadmap, identify program refinements and establish strong connections to the Comprehensive Plan.


We will release a text draft of the Cultural Plan for public comment this summer. The public comment period will include a Community Conversation in late July during which you can share feedback directly with the Cultural Plan team. After the comment period closes, our team will revise the Plan based on the feedback we receive. Stay tuned for more information about the public comment period and Community Conversation.


Throughout the planning process our team has worked to develop a more inclusive ‘flat’ engagement process where stakeholders were able to provide detailed input. Through eight Community Conversations  and  more than 70 targeted outreach events our team received a vast amount of input that we are carefully considering to ensure that this is the best possible Plan to meet the needs of all District residents.


If you have any questions or want to provide input please send an email to
