"After a year of hard work by a group of diligent and dedicated citizens under the stewardship of Terry Wolverton, a grant from the NEA, fabulous support from Emiko Ono and the Cultural Arts Commission, the City of Pomona unanimously passed a Strategic Cultural Arts Plan last night."

In 2010, the City of Pomona was selected to join four other municipalities throughout Los Angeles County to receive support from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts to develop a Cultural Plan for the City. Spearheaded by the Cultural Arts Commission—Rochelle Bryant, Earnest P. Campos, Douglass Dorado, Mickey Gallivan, Joy McAllister, Cindy Moore and Rita Romero—the cultural planning process has allowed Pomona to engage its residents and other stakeholders in considering how arts and culture can improve the quality of life for those who live and work here. Over 100 representatives of the arts, business, social service, educational and civic communities have advised this plan.

  1. Also last night the council approved the historic designation for the Mayfair Hotel. It is now a city historic landmark.
