The City of Lakewood has been engaging the community over the past nine months to develop a Public Art Master Plan that will be adopted as an amendment to the Lakewood Comprehensive Plan. The Lakewood Comprehensive Plan provides residents, property owners, City Officials and staff with a framework for making sound land use decisions.
The creation of the Public Art Master Plan has involved collaboration between City staff, community organizations, business associations, property and business owners and managers, residents, and other stakeholders. The planning process involved working with these stakeholders to identify a vision and future direction for public art in Lakewood and to establish goals and action steps to implement the vision. A stakeholder steering committee guided the development of the plan. Public meetings and a community survey provided additional opportunities for community input.
The City Council adopted the Public Art Master Plan as an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan on July 8. A copy of the plan can be viewed here: Public Arts Master Plan.
