The Arts & Culture Commission is a potential new commission that deserves some thought. I presented conceptual information to my fellow City Councilmembers, City Staff, and the public at the City Council meeting of October 10, 2023. An Arts & Culture Commission would advise the City Council on matters related to art, culture, and creative activities of all types.
San Dimas currently has the Planning Commission, which is required by law, and four other commissions: Equestrian, Parks and Recreation, Public Safety, and Senior Citizens. Each commission has five members appointed by the City Council. A new commission that is focused on arts and culture would have a lot to do and would be beneficial to the community, as outlined in the slide presentation below.
