The Peachtree Corners Arts Council received five proposals to the city’s request for a consultant’s help in preparing an Arts and Culture Master Plan. The Arts Council short-listed and interviewed three firms: Lord Cultural Resources, Designing Local, and The Sizemore Group, an Atlanta firm. All three groups impressed city officials and convincingly demonstrated their experience and skill.
After careful consideration, the Arts Council recommended and the City Council approved awarding the project to The Sizemore Group. This consultant is also the low bidder at $58,500.
The program will include gathering public input to develop a 20-year arts and cultural master plan that will evaluate arts and culture activities and programming, potential funding, staffing and budgeting issues, possible locations suitable for recommended projects, accessibility to arts and culture locations, and more.
According to city documents, the plan will work to create “excitement, consensus and clear direction for buildings, green spaces, and public spaces that are feasible and highly successful.”
