The Woodlands Township is soliciting public input regarding cultural needs in the community through an online survey which will be available to the public until February 27, 2017. Results of the survey will be included in the Phase 1 report, to be presented to the Township Board of Directors at the March 22, 2017, Board of Directors meeting.
The Woodlands Township has recently begun a Cultural Arts Feasibility Study. For the purposes of discussion and for the study, the term “cultural arts” is broadly used to encompass museums, exhibition space or elements of the performing arts. The study is to be unbiased and conducted in such a way that the Township will have full understanding of the type of cultural arts facility that would best be supported by The Woodlands Township, if any.
The Woodlands Township Board of Directors authorized Gensler to conduct the study in two phases:
Phase I – Needs Assessment
Phase II – Management/Business Plan and Financial Pro Forma, if necessary
At the completion of Phase 1, the Township Board will approve the commencement of Phase II. Webb Management, an expert in cultural arts feasibility studies, will conduct the needs assessment portion for The Woodlands Township, in conjunction with Gensler. Representatives from both companies presented an overview of the study at the January 25, 2017, Township Board of Directors meeting.
