City Council Expected To Select Commissioner For The Arts Commission

A commissioner for the open slot on the Santa Clarita Arts Commission will be selected on Tuesday to finish the unexpired term of office that ends on July 31, 2014, according to Santa Clarita city officials.

The four applicants for the open seat are Chris Donald, Janis Doukakis, Ron Gallmeier and Patti Rasmussen.

They are seeking to assume Paul Strickland’s spot on the board. Strickland, who’s also a William S. Hart Union High School board member, resigned in May for a career opportunity in Florida.

Strickland has served on the Arts Commission since December 2009, and has worked in animated television for nearly three decades. 

Councilwoman Laurene Weste will nominate one of the four applicants in accordance with city policy, then the City Council is expected to ratify the nomination.

The Arts Commission is primarily composed of five members appointed by the City Council.

On a monthly basis, the Arts Commission oversees and authorizes current and upcoming  art-related projects and commend individuals for their contributions to the arts within the Santa Clarita community.

They contribute ideas to the City Council to develop the cultural arts in Santa Clarita, according to the city’s website.

The commission’s mission is “to facilitate achievement in the arts for the benefit of the entire community,” according to the city’s website.

The commission’s primary endeavor is to support local arts organizations, raise awareness of the arts in the community through marketing, promote economic development through the arts, and enhance arts and cultural education.

Each committee meeting has an allotted time period to address new and old business matters and additionally set time for public participation to address the commission. 

“Recent developments that the arts commission have worked on are they developed the Newhall Roundabout project and the Magic Mountain I-5 exit project,” said Ingrid Hardy, superintendent of the Community Services Division for the City of Santa Clarita. 

Other matters discussed range from large-scale projects such as supporting the renovation of the Arts and Entertainment District in Old Town Newhall to exchanging potential fundraising ideas to facilitating the formation of an Arts foundation. 

The council will vote to appoint a commissioner, then the newly elected Arts Commissioner will be expected to assume the position at the following Arts Commission meeting on Thursday.
