The book is a must-have for municipal council members, civic administration, arts and cultural organizations, heritage groups, business leaders, and community activists. It is also a call to action for local communities frustrated with the lack of knowledge and commitment by senior governments to assist local municipalities in municipal cultural planning. It provides a comprehensive, holistic view of cultural planning, talks candidly about the changing demographic trends facing local governments, why creative city concepts are an important economic development tool, and why municipalities must be moving now to change their processes and planning to create the kinds of communities that will attract the CRINK economy in the future. What’s the CRINK economy? It’s the future for municipalities. Creative. Innovative. Knowledge-based. How can municipalities change? How do they compete for the bright young talent that is out there, but is more discerning and demanding than any generation before? How will municipalities increase their local assessment base? How do you galvanize your community into action? Towns and cities in Canada are facing new and sobering responsibilities. Shrinking economies, limited local tax base, and significant shifts in the make-up of our local population mean new ways of thinking, action, and responsibilities for local government. Cultural Planning for Creative Communities is important for municipalities of all sizes. (Font: Editor)
