Support the Creation of a Cultural Arts District in Houston, TX

 

Cultural Arts Designation Letter of Intent has been submitted to the Texas Commission on the Arts. A group of all-volunteer advocates representing the Washington Corridor neighborhood groups is hoping the final application will be approved to create a Cultural Arts District in the Lower Washington Avenue area. The boundaries of which will be I-10 to the north, Buffalo Bayou to the south, I-45 to the east and Heights Boulevard to the west. 

The creation of a Cultural Arts District has many benefits for the area. A recognized concentration of cultural facilities serves to increase economic development, increase visibility to the area, promote tourism and support local businesses all of which create opportunities for further improvement of the area as a safe and exciting place to live, work and visit.

We ask  you to show your support for the creation of the Lower Washington Cultural Arts District. The more support we can gain from area residents, Houstonians and others who plan to utilize the area, business leaders, government officials, etc, the more impact our application to the TCA will have. The deadline for submittal is June 1st. Please sign our petition of support and send to all your friends and colleagues asking them to do the same.
