NEWS-TIMES/HILLSBORO TRIBUNE PHOTO: KATHY FULLER - Hillsboro's most recent public art installation, Head Over Heels by Patrick Dougherty, was a community effort involving 200 volunteers.The city of Hillsboro cultural arts division is seeking public input on ideas for making Hillsboro a more creative and welcoming community.

The city is currently working with Arts Consulting Group (ACG) to create a Community Cultural Arts Plan.

Following a series of public meetings held in the spring, an online survey is open through June 30 and is available in English and Spanish.

Melissa Moore, Community Arts Program Supervisor at the city said she's hoping to a collect ideas and input from a wide range of residents through the online survey.

The survey aims to find out which arts and culture opportunities people enjoy and what services can be improved. "What do people see as missing? What could be strengthened? It's really important that we get as many responses as possible from a variety of people," she said.

Once the survey ends, Moore said, the Cultural Arts Plan steering committee will work with ACG to "put together an action plan going forward." The process should be complete by fall of this year, Moore said.

Moore said she's already received input asking for more neighborhood-centered arts and culture opportunities, as well as support for strengthening the downtown arts district. To take the short Cultural Arts Plan survey, visit
