Cultural Master Plan

About the Cultural Master Plan
The Town of Cobourg is a community rich in heritage and culture. The Town’s forthcoming Cultural Master Plan will profile the Town’s rich cultural resources and identify better ways to coordinate, align and promote the Town’s cultural resources to both residents and visitors to our community. The project will also broaden the recognition of the Town of Cobourg as a creative and vibrant municipality where the growth of the cultural sector is fostered as a vital component of the community’s social and economic well-being.

The final Cultural Master Plan will be a standalone document designed to support the policies and goals listed in several of the Town’s strategic guiding documents. The plan will include vision and principles, municipal roles and partnerships opportunities, strategic actionable initiatives and a detailed implementation plan designed to assist in monitoring progress and deliverables.

Where are we now?
Based on the foundation laid out by the mapping inventory, a Launch Event held in February 2019, telephone surveys and an online survey the Cultural Master Plan will focus on gaining input from the Cobourg community and key cultural businesses, organizations, and stakeholders. The input from these sessions will be used to develop a cultural vision for the town, identify appropriate strategies and actions to support cultural development across a wide range of interests, and create a Cultural Master Plan that will help to inform municipal and community based decision-making across the town. Read more about our past public engagement opportunities. We are now undergoing a public engagement process to review the Final Draft Report.

So how can you participate in the Cultural Master Plan process?
To support the development of the Cultural Master Plan a community engagement process is being used to seek ideas and input from across the town. In order to reach the broadest possible cross-section of residents, a launch event, an open house and a telephone community survey have already occurred. Citizens are also invited to attend the Open House on September 5th to review the Draft Cultural Master Plan Report.

The public engagement objective for the Cultural Master Plan is to:

  • Provide feedback on the six Strategic Directions proposed in the Draft Report.
  • Provide feedback on the Cultural Master Plan Draft Report.

Thank you for your feedback!
The online engagement forum is now closed. We appreciate your feedback! The staff report will be submitted to Council on October 3, 2019 for review.
