Public Meetings in August and September for Arts and Culture Plan

Greater Franklin Development Council (GFDC) and Arts Farmington are gathering information on creative resources in Southern Franklin County and its surrounding towns in order to develop an Arts, Cultural, and Heritage Plan. With help from Reinholt Consulting, GFDC and Arts Farmington are committed to creating a community designed plan that will enhance the quality of life for residents as well as the creative economy. Input from citizens, artists, and cultural organizations throughout this process is essential to the success of this effort.

Input from public meetings held last fall helped shape surveys that were distributed this spring to collect important data surrounding the arts, cultural, and heritage offerings in the Southern Franklin County Region.

The survey portion of the project is now complete, and the group will host a public meeting at the UMF North Dining Hall C on August 14th at 6 PM to present data findings and initial recommendations for the plan goals and objectives. We’ll also hold a meeting at Life’s Perks Coffee Co. in Wilton on September 12th at 4 PM to refine the strategies for the final plan.

For more information, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
