ABOUT THE VALPARAISO CREATIVE COUNCIL
Following numerous facilitator-led workshops and panels to envision the future of Valparaiso, the city adopted the ValpoNEXT Citywide Vision Plan which includes a broad range of strategies generated by hundreds of participating community members.
Among the included action steps to pursue over the coming decade is the creation of a Creative District Plan, the result of conversations with ValpoNEXT and inspired by Valparaiso’s quarter-finalist round finish in the America’s Best Community Competition.
