Creative Economy Task Force
In 2011 the Village assembled a task force to develop and propose a strategic plan for the Creative Economy Initiative (CEI). Comprised of a broad range of representatives from across the community, the task force included members of the Waunakee Community School District, the Waunakee Area Chamber of Commerce and the Waunakee Economic Development Commission as well as local artists, businesses, and residents devoted to enhancing Waunakee's profile as a creative and innovative place.

In November 2017, the Village Board approved the establishment of a new task force to help guide the Village into the next phase of the CEI. This task force will pursue the creation of a new entity to encourage and implement creative economy projects, businesses, and services across Waunakee. 

To assist with this undertaking, the Village engaged a student consulting group from the Bolz Center for Arts Administration at UW-Madison. The consulting team will support the task force by conducting case study and other research, facilitating discussions and community conversations, and partnering with task force members to design mechanisms to set the new entity up for success. 

Stay tuned to this page for updates about the CEI task force and ways you can engage with the planning process over the next several months.
