Montgomery County Arts & Cultural District Dayton, Ohio
1991-1992 Cultural Action Plan for the Greater Montgomery County Area, Dayton, Ohio. In 1991, The Montgomery County Arts and Cultural District – established by the County to administer the allocation of $1,000,000 annually (now $1,200,000 annually) of sales tax revenue that has been dedicated to support the arts and cultural heritage of Montgomery County – called for a study to assess the area's cultural needs and produce a comprehensive cultural development plan that would provide cultural policies to guide the annual allocation process beyond 1992.
With strong support from Judy Mott, Executive Director, (937-223-7921, firstname.lastname@example.org), Halsey and Alice North of The North Group Inc. and Ralph Burgard of Burgard Associates, facilitated an open planning process with over 500 citizens involved actively. The recommendations were the product of over 90 committee and small group meetings and one-on-one interviews with over 150 citizens. The plan was a comprehensive, long range perspective on cultural development for the area that represented a consensus of representatives of government, business, economic development, education and cultural agencies – including the Montgomery County Commissioners, the City of Dayton Commissioners, the Dayton-Montgomery County Park District, Miami Valley Arts Council, and ARTSDAYTON.
The plan recommended the merger of the arts council and united arts fund drive into a new CultureWorks that has been serving the Dayton area successfully for more than 10 years.
Funds are distributed annually today in the same categories recommended under the plan:
