The idea to create an Arts Commission was introduced to the Bonney Lake City Council at the Feb. 4 workshop.

The council later adopted it at the meeting on Feb. 11.

The Community Culture Plan, a subelement of the city’s comprehensive plan, is why the council decided to adopt the resolution, City Administrator Don Morrison said.

Morrison added, the Community Culture Plan includes the “goal to preserve and promote the arts, and to support the development of facilities and programs for public art and cultural opportunities that create and enrich a strong sense of community identity and promote a high quality of life.”

He said there are supporting goals such as “advocating for visual and performing arts facilities to serve the needs of the community and incorporating the arts into its downtown plan to enhance pedestrian connections and highlight cultural assets including public art and community history.”

This arts commission will help promote the arts and advise the mayor and city with regard to art related projects taken on by Bonney Lake.

The city is looking for and accepting applications for volunteer positions within the commission.

The arts commission will be made of five to seven members appointed by Mayor Neil Johnson and those members will serve a three year term.

The city is looking for a member to represent the business community, a student representative and others with various backgrounds in the arts such as music, visual arts, performance, digital and literary.

Applications can be found online at the city of Bonney Lake website.
