Indio 101 is a new article series highlighting information about Indio city government to increase awareness and engagement in the community. Chapter 32 of the Indio Municipal Code establishes several citizen commissions.
This month we review the Public Arts and Historic Preservation Commission. Its purpose is to provide technical and aesthetic recommendations for all public and private public art projects; determine if artwork meets the goals of the Art in Public Places program; create and recommend policy in conformity with the Indio General Plan for the visual arts and historic preservation; and oversee historical landmarks and programs. The Public Arts and Historic Preservation Commission meets on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. at the Indio City Council Chambers, 150 Civic Center Mall. The commissioners are Deborah Schwartz Glickman, Ed “E.J.” Neumeyer, Bill Schinsky, Thomas Buck, and Venessa Becerra. Click here for more information.
