Secretary of Commerce David Toland announced today that four town halls have been scheduled to engage the public in the development of the Kansas Framework for Growth, the economic development planning process kicked off earlier this year by Governor Laura Kelly.
These town halls are an expressed opportunity for the Kansas government to hear directly from the public. ArtsKC and the Arts Council of Johnson County believe that the arts must have robust representation at these town halls to highlight our part to play in the economic development of not only Kansas, but any geographical area.
The town halls are open to the public and scheduled at locations
across the state in the evenings to encourage participation.
Each of the town halls will give the public the opportunity to view data around key
indicators of economic performance in Kansas, including demographics, education,
workforce participation, incentive efficiency and industry mix.
Can't attend the town halls?
The Governor would still like to hear from you.
you think are major priorities for their economic development strategy.
This would be a great avenue to voice your support for the arts and to raise your arts funding.
