Community Investing in Community

Recent planning efforts have generated ideas for improvements to facilities on our island. A referendum is a way to fund projects and invest in our community.

  • Arts and Culture planning efforts included a 3-year effort with Venue Committee to identify recommendations to serve the Arts and Culture needs of the community including expansion of the current Arts facility in Shelter Cove. Webb Management Services, the consultant hired by the Town, worked with the Venue Committee to develop viable options. One option included in the recommendations, outlined as Option B "New Construction and Adaptive Reuse", was to renovate the current Arts facility and included expansion in both space and user groups.
    • This recommendation is included in the referendum for Art and Culture facilities.
