Collier to vote on an arts plan that cuts out United Arts Council

Laura Burns, left, executive director of the United Arts Council of Collier County, and David Plettner-Saunders, managing partner at Cultural Planning Group, center, talk at anarts and cultural plan the arts council staffed during a community meeting, Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2020, at Naples Botanical Garden.

After devoting staff and board to help develop a countywide arts plan, the United Arts Council may be totally cut out of it. 

Collier County commissioners will be asked today to vote on an amended version of the Collier County Arts and Culture Strategic Plan that has dropped the organization as its executor. The organization was not told of the change, according to Laura Burns, executive director of the UAC.

Further, she said, the arts council was not even contacted to participate in reworking the plan after its first pass with county commissioners Oct. 27. 

The first-ever Collier County arts and culture strategic plan would develop a strategy to successfully promote the county as an arts and culture destination.
