In October 2009, the City Council created the Public Art program. The goals of the program are to promote and encourage public art programs, further the development, awareness and interest in the visual arts, create an enhanced visual environment, and promote tourism and economic vitality.
The program will be funded using a "percent for the arts" mechanism in which 1% of eligible Capital Improvement Projects' (CIP) budget is dedicated to public art, a portion of the revenues generated by the Hotel Occupancy Tax, and by donation to the Public Art Fund made by water customers on their water bills (beginning January 1, 2010).
