Hastings County Council approved the Cultural Plan at their September 27th meeting. It’s a 10-year Plan containing four main goals designed to improve networking between organizations while boosting economic development for the County, City of Belleville and City of Quinte West.
Economic Development Manager Andrew Redden commented, “There’s a patchwork quilt of really cool and unique cultural attractions across our County, but we need to do a better job of packaging them up with a nice bow on top. If we don’t, then tourists and new entrepreneurs might just pass us by”.
Here is a copy of the 10-Year Plan in PDF format. You can also download here the Key Findings and Strategic Directions Report.
One of the first tasks is to create a County-wide Cultural Roundtable of volunteers who will help oversee the implementation of the plan and take action on the recommendations. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about becoming a Roundtable volunteer, please contact us today.
