Members of the public are being asked to give input into a plan that will help guide the cultural and artistic development in Greater Sudbury.

A public survey is available online at greatersudburyculture.ca until May 5. The surveys can also be filled out in person at any branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library.

“Sustaining and growing a strong cultural identity is a way to enhance quality of life and to drive a knowledge based economy,” said Gisele Chretien, chair of Greater Sudbury’s cultural plan steering committee, in a media release. “We’re asking citizens for input to create a plan that reflects our community’s unique identity, people and sense of place.”

The plan will build on the Greater Sudbury’s Arts and Cultural Charter, Strategy and Grant Policy, which were adopted by city council in 2006.

A steering committee of residents and members of the local arts and culture community is leading the planning process, with support from municipal staff.

Residents will have more opportunities to give input into the new cultural plan as work progresses. For more information, please visit greatersudburyculture.ca or dial 311 for municipal services.
