First adopted by City Council in 1995, and updated most recently in 2014, the Community Cultural Plan (CCP) serves as a blueprint to position cultural resources as community and economic building blocks. Originally produced by the Edmonds Arts Commission in partnership with the Edmonds Arts Festival/Foundation, the plan is a direct result of the community’s ongoing commitment to and participation in the arts. The CCP is an element of the City Comprehensive Plan; aspects of cultural planning are also included in the Parks Plan and the Streetscape Plan. In addition to the CCP, the Arts Commission worked on the 4th Avenue Cultural Corridor and SR 99 International District Enhancements projects.

Edmonds Arts Summit
The first Edmonds arts summit was held in 2013, attracting over 200 participants. The summit focused on the power of arts in our community and served as a kick-off for the community cultural plan update process. A mini-arts summit was held in 2015 to present updates of the implementation of the 2014 community cultural plan.
The next Mini-Arts Summit is planned for late 2017 or early 2018.
