Cultural Districts and Economic Growth
A Cultural Arts district is a geographic area designated by a government agency, private development group, or planning authority for the purpose of community revitalization by using art and cultural activities and facilities.
Successful Cultural Districts are mixed-use areas that incorporate high technology centers, government offices, artist housing, historic districts, tourists sites, and specialized restaurants and retail; all of which are anchored by cultural facilities (such as art centers, museums, galleries, theaters) and cultural activities such as (festivals, performing art events, arts classes and education, and public art).
Cultural Districts are home to the arts and offer residents and visitors access to the arts. However, cultural districts also spur economic activity and economic development by expanding the tax base, enhance property values, provide additional employment for well trained, professional employees, attract new residents to the city, complement businesses just outside the district, extend business hours to enhance night life in the district, spur beautification efforts, and attract new businesses and sales tax dollars. Economic development enhances the business and residential community and expands opportunity to residents and potential residents alike.
