Williamsburg exploring an Arts District

The City of Williamsburg Virginia has long been known for its history and its higher education. Now city leaders are hoping it will be known for its arts as well.

Williamsburg has created a focus group of various city residents and invested $12,500 to explore the possibility of establishing an arts district in the city.

Led by the Economic Development Authority, the Williamsburg City Council has allotted $12,500 for ArtSpace, a non-profit real estate developer specializing in the arts, to conduct a feasibility survey March 2-3. Additionally, a group of 16 city residents will examine the potential of an arts community in Williamsburg.

According to Williamsburg Economic Development Director Michelle DeWitt, the initiative has been under consideration for some time.

Although the creation of an arts district is still in its early stages, both DeWitt and Williamsburg Mayor Jeanne Zeidler  say a positive outcome is likely.

A public meeting will be held with ArtSpace consultants on March 2 in the Community Building on North Boundary Street to discuss the project’s feasibility and timeline.
