LANCASTER — The City Council will conduct a public hearing today to in­troduce an ordinance to amend the municipal code in regard to the city’s Art in Public Places program.

The Council will also consider adding a dir­ect­or’s review fee to the city­wide fee schedule for ap­pli­ca­tions for Public Art on Private Property permits.

Last November the City Council approved the proposed Art in Pub­lic Places Program and Man­ual in order to establish guidelines and processes for public art provided by the public sector.

The program will draw 1% from new capital im­prove­ment projects to go toward public art proj­ects on public property. The pro­posed director’s review fee will offset staff time in reviewing applications for Public Art on Private Prop­erty permits, according to a staff report by Parks, Recreation and Arts Director Jeff Campbell.

The City Council meets at 5 p.m. in council cham­bers at City Hall, 44933 Fern Ave.
