City of Niagara Falls Culture Plan
In 2015, City Council for Niagara Falls approved a Culture Plan to identify, leverage and strengthen the community’s cultural resources. It will result in a better awareness of the City’s cultural resources, an improved quality of life for residents, opportunities to recognize and develop the cultural sector as both a cultural asset and an economic engine, as well as create improved opportunities for artists and cultural organizations to network, and to showcase or exhibit their artistic talent. We are in the process of getting the Culture Plan AODA compliant. If you require such a copy please contact the city staff listed on this website. You can download a copy of the Plan here.
