Gov. Brown Signs Legislation Creating CA Cultural Districts

Yesterday, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill 189, a measure empowering the California Arts Council to designate areas as Cultural Districts!

The districts will be approved by the Council through a competitive application process. As part of the program, we'll provide technical and promotional support to the districts, as well as collaborate with public agencies and private entities to maximize the benefits to the local and state economy.

The bill was authored by Assemblymember Richard Bloom with co-authors Assembly Members Ian Calderon and Marie Waldron, and Senator Ben Allen.

"Whether it be the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, the Tower District of Fresno, or the artistic enclaves of the North Coast, California is internationally recognized for its abundance of creative and cultural businesses, organizations and events," stated Assemblymember Bloom. "Designating areas with vibrant creative communities as Cultural Districts will not only celebrate California's diverse cultural landscape, but will also help to draw economic development and tourism to local economies."

Stay tuned for more information on the launch of the California statewide Cultural Districts program.
