Theater committee takes on cultural research task

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” A new committee plans to research what the cultural core of Glenwood Springs will be in 2028.

The study is part of a process to create a long-term cultural plan for the community.

The group is called the Collaborative Community Planning Program (CCPP) and it’s sponsored by the Colorado Citizens for Culture. It evolved out of the Ad Hoc Theater Committee, a group charged by City Council to investigate developing a theater complex in Glenwood, according to a news release from the CCPP.

The new development for the theater committee “will ultimately enhance sources for networking, fundraising and development of the theater project,” the news release says.

Glenwood was chosen as one of eight cities in Colorado for the study, the CCPP said.

The study should take about a year. The group will engage in all aspects of community life, from business and arts to education and politics to develop a public policy for how community’s arts and culture can improve a community’s vitality, economy and livability, the news release says.

The CCPP members are Marice Doll, Ruth Mollman, Gayle Mortell, Judy O’Donnell and Wayne Pleasants.

Public meetings will be held to gather input.
