Milton’s first-ever local culture plan was recently approved by council.
The ten-year plan, called “Here to Stay,” was passed at a recent meeting and is a roadmap for the future of Milton’s cultural policies and investments.
Additionally, the plan allows the Town to have a better understanding of its role in growing and supporting culture within the community.
“Milton is home to a culturally diverse and inclusive community,” said Mayor Gord Krantz.
“With culture at the centre of community building and development, the culture plan is a path forward and provides a framework to integrate cultural planning into Town projects.”
The culture plan features five avenues of action that enhance Milton as a “Place of Possibility.”
These include fostering a resilient and collaborative cultural sector, celebrating and sharing Milton’s diversity, supporting Indigenous cultural resurgence, strengthening culture-led economic and social development and expanding investments in cultural infrastructure, including places and spaces.
The plan is a result of months of collaborative and creative public consultation.
Through the cultural planning process, community members and stakeholders defined culture as “the expression of Milton’s diverse identities through Milton’s people, places, stories and beliefs.”
