Cultural Master Plan

Last updated: Jun. 13, 2017 at 4:12 PM

On June 13, 2016, Mayor and Council were delivered the City of Spruce Grove's new Cultural Master Plan PDF (CMP) which includes the Cultural Master Plan process.  This plan was developed by Cultural Services and Dr. Greg Baeker of MDB Insight Consultants. Greg has worked in senior leadership positions in Canada as a policy maker, cultural planner and academic. Greg entered the field through the museums and heritage sector, working as Executive Director of the Ontario Museums Association and Executive Coordinator, Ontario Heritage Policy Review, the first cross-government heritage policy in the country.

The City of Spruce Grove joins leading municipalities nationally and internationally in developing a cultural master plan. Motivation for developing plans flows from growing recognition on the part of municipalities of the powerful role played by cultural resources in building prosperous and diversified local economies and enhancing quality of life in communities. Recognizing its importance, the City of Spruce Grove has integrated cultural development issues and opportunities into a range of plans and policies aimed at advancing economic and broader community development agendas in the city. A critical issue channel taken up by the CMP is how the City of Spruce Grove can build the capacity to act on and implement existing cultural policy and planning statements and commitments.
