The arts will take center stage during the Danville Town Council's regular meeting Tuesday night.
Council members are due to consider creating a new town Arts Advisory Board and renaming the town's Park and Leisure Services Commission as the Parks, Recreation and Arts Commission.
“With the adoption of the Danville Parks, Recreation and Arts Strategic Plan Update in 2017, there has been an increased recognition of the need to coordinate public arts into the town’s parks and public spaces,” Jessica Wallnerm, Danville’s program supervisor for the cultural arts, said in a staff report. “In addition, the strategic plan has highlighted the need to better coordinate cultural arts programming into use of the town’s parks.”
The new, six-member Arts Advisory Board -- which will be replacing the existing, eight-member Arts Commission -- will advise the Town Council on issues that strictly relate to the arts in Danville.
After discussing the establishment of the Arts Advisory Board, the council will consider appointing residents to serve as its members. Council members will also consider appointing members to the town’s Heritage Resource Commission later in the evening.
The Town Council will also hear a special presentation updating them on the activities of the East Bay Municipal Utility District and the monthly town manager’s report.
The public is invited to join in on the conversation at the Danville Town Council’s regular meeting which will be held Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. at the Town Meeting Hall, 201 Front St.
