Culture and Economic Development

A dynamic local economy is resilient, sustainable, and reflects the rich cultural diversity of the community. Through effective collaboration with local business and community partners, we will strengthen the delivery of our cultural and economic development services and ensure ours is a city of choice to live, work, and play.

Key directions:

  • Support and foster small retail storefronts and businesses to ensure the local economy reflects the diversity of the community.
  • Continue to identify, develop, promote, and enhance diverse cultural services and assets through pursuit of strategic partnerships, collaborations, and plans.
  • Encourage and support economic growth and investment in key business and culture sectors.
