Municipal Cultural Master Plan
The City of Windsor commissioned a Municipal Cultural Master Plan (MCMP) in late 2008 in order to provide guidance to the municipality regarding its investment of human and financial resources in support of the community's arts, culture and heritage sectors.
The plan was developed through an extensive public consultation process that included interviews, surveys, workshops, focus groups and open houses, as well as a benchmarking exercise that examined the efforts of other Ontario communities to develop their cultural sectors.
The MCMP mapped out 16 recommendations to strengthen and develop culture in the City of Windsor. The Cultural Affairs Office is in the process of implementing these recommendations.
Progress can be tracked here through posted news items, related links and supporting documentation.
