celebrates the mixture of vintage and midcentury modern buildings, local businesses and cultural amenities; and which is safe, easily accessible, active 24 hours, and pedestrian oriented; and

                     WHEREAS, the Downtown Albuquerque Arts & Cultural District Steering Committee engaged key stakeholders and the public to identify opportunities in the district and create a Downtown Arts and Cultural Plan: “Multitude of Riches: A Blueprint for the Creative Development of Downtown Albuquerque,” hereinafter referred to as “the Plan”; and

WHEREAS, the Plan provides a vision for cultivating the growth of arts, cultural and creative activity in downtown Albuquerque; and

WHEREAS, the Plan produces an implementation guide intended to promote partnerships between local government, private and commercial entities, non-profit organizations, interested citizens, and business owners; and

WHEREAS, the Plan establishes four priorities generated by the community and industry experts: development of leadership capacity to implement the Plan, branding and marketing Downtown’s cultural assets, continued development of arts and culture-related business activity and physical improvements such as streetscapes and beautification; and

WHEREAS, the Plan outlines strategies and objectives aimed at achieving those priorities and goals; and

WHEREAS, the Plan outlines a list of recommended Capital Projects that would support the development of the Arts and Cultural District.
