Snapshot: Cultural Planning

Municipalities create a range of different instruments to guide and support the cultural development of their community, ranging from legislation, policies, chapters in general community plans, and specific cultural plans and strategies (as well as programs and other initiatives, examined later in this report). Some of these documents are general in nature, encompassing a range of possible activities within articulated strategic directions, while others are very precise instruments that enable particular actions. In addition many municipal documents have a multidimensional nature and serve as both policy and plan. 31 municipalities responded to the Cultural Planning section of the survey. Data years reflected in this report: 2003–2005
