The City of Redmond is considering amending the zoning code to provide more clarity about when and how the City should review public art projects proposed by a developer.  An interim process is being used currently.  In the meantime, staff members are evaluating the interim process, continuing to research other arts agencies' approaches to privately developed public art, and seeking input from the public.  

Please review the video prior to taking this survey, which will provide more context.

Thank you for participating!  If you wish to speak to staff about this effort, please contact Carolyn Hope, Park Planning & Cultural Arts Manager at cjhope@redmond.gov or 425.556.2313.
