“Good pub­lic art, de­sign and ar­chi­tec­ture can create a unique com­mu­nity iden­tity that in­forms the sense of place and iconic brand­ing of the coun­cil area,” she said upon the pol­icy’s for­mal adop­tion at coun­cil’s monthly meet­ing on Au­gust 21.

“It can el­e­vate the aes­thetic pro­file for our ur­ban en­vi­ron­ments, play a role in at­tract­ing busi­nesses and work­ers, and en­cour­age the growth of a cul­tur­ally-in­formed pub­lic.”

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s draft pol­icy was on pub­lic ex­hi­bi­tion for 30 days af­ter be­ing en­dorsed at the June meet­ing. No sub­mis­sions were re­ceived and no amend­ments were made.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s Pub­lic Art Pol­icy pro­vides a frame­work for ef­fec­tive man­age­ment of pub­lic art and best out­comes from aes­thetic, func­tional and eco­nomic per­spec­tives ac­cord­ing to coun­cil’s di­rec­tor cor­po­rate and com­mu­nity ser­vices Kristy Kay.
