Roswell creating Rec Commission to oversee Arts Center


An ordinance amendment eliminating the Roswell Arts Commission and creating a Recreation Commission to oversee the city’s Cultural Arts Center has been approved on first reading by the City Council. It is to return for a second and final vote Sept. 26.

The Council took the action after the Roswell Arts Fund Inc., a nonprofit organization, was contracted by the city last fall to assume the arts and culture responsibilities previously handled by the Arts Commission.

References to the Arts Commission will be removed from the Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs section of city ordinances.

The amendment creates a seven-member Recreation Commission “to review and establish resident status for companies at the (Cultural Arts Center); establish rules and regulations governing the use of the center; and approve lease agreements for use of the center and other cultural facilities of the city as designated by the Mayor and City Council.”
