Rancho Cucamonga Creative Placemaking and Public Art Ordinance

The Arts Area spoke at the Rancho Cucamonga City Council meeting tonight in support of the city's proposed Creative Placemaking and Public Art Ordinance. 

The Arts Area commends the City of Rancho Cucamonga for its forward thinking support of the arts. We give our strong endorsement of the proposed city Ordinance No. 912 regarding creative placemaking and public art. Public art enlivens and distinguishes public spaces, providing visual interest, and pride in our community. It helps reflect a city’s unique identity and foster an understanding of its history. And furthermore, supports the educational and cultural development of the residents and visitors of Rancho Cucamonga. We look forward to the Council’s support of this ordinance.

Update: The City Council voted unanimously to approve the ordinance on July 19, 2017.
