A RESOLUTION OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO ADDING A MATCHING FUND COMPONENT TO THE CITY'S PUBLIC ART PROGRAM
WHEREAS, the City has had a Public Art Program in place since 1990 ; and
WHEREAS, the Program currently consists of three components, including Visual Arts in Public Places, Privately Funded Art in Public Places and Public Art in Private Development ; and
WHEREAS, the City realizes that a matching fund component to the public art program is an excellent way to expand public art opportunities within the City beyond the three existing components.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of the City of San Luis Obispo that a matching fund component is hereby added to the City's Public Art Program and shall read as follows:
The City has established a matching grant program to encourage public art. Projects seeking matching grant funds will require City Council approval, consistent with the City's Donation Acceptance Policy . Public art projects receiving matching funds should provide a clear public benefit and advance the City's public art goals. For every request, the Council will determine an appropriate level of match, up to a dollar-for-dollar level.
