The Master Plan

Please click here to go to the Township's site and have a look at the draft of the Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan for Centre Wellington. This document will help council and staff shape policies in the coming years. As theatre people it's imporant that we stay informed about what's happening at the government level regarding the arts in our community, and I noted with some disdain and some concern that I was the only representative from the theatre present at the public meeting which was held to discuss this plan. Nonetheless, I do think that this is a very good document (the final draft is apparently out, but only contains minor variances from the original), and I believe that the arts are in an excellent position to work with the township over the next decade to create the pillars of a thriving, more diverse, more widespread cultural community in Centre Wellington.
