Thank you to everyone who took the time to give us feedback and ask questions. Your input will inform the final draft of the Art in Public Spaces Master Plan, which will be presented to Council for their consideration in spring 2021.

Public art is an important city-building tool. It helps people connect with their community and with each other. It brings art to life in everyday settings and makes it accessible to all.

Art can be incorporated into our public spaces in a wide variety of ways: for example, it can be temporary or permanent; the artist can create a work that is stationary or includes an element of movement. Whatever form it takes, public art contributes to our sense of place. It helps to make Port Moody interesting and beautiful, enhances civic pride, and encourages us to celebrate our rich history. It builds our community by having a positive impact on our quality of life and our local economy.

Our Art in Public Spaces Master Plan will serve as a five-year roadmap for City staff and the community as we develop and maintain art in public spaces. The development of this plan was supported by research which is included in the Public Art Planning Context Report.

    Budget for this draft plan?

    Daphne asked 10 months ago

    The draft Art in Public Spaces Master Plan does not have a budget attached to it. Once we have a final Plan that’s been adopted by Council, an implementation framework will be developed, and potential partners and funding options will be considered for the various actionsSome of the recommended supporting actions require no budget and some propose an approach rather than a specific item that can be costed at this time. For those supporting actions that will require a budget, a project plan will be developed with a proposed budget, which will be presented to Council for their consideration as that supporting action is being developed. Costs for each action will vary based on Council's approved project scope and identified partners.
