“Everybody has a wonderful story to share about the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium – whether it’s the place they saw their first concert or first realized the power of playing music in front of audience” said Jessica Cusick, the City’s Cultural Affairs Manager. “Santa Monica is home to a broad array of creative professionals, we hope a large number of them will be inspired to help shape the future of the fabled Civic.”

Composition of the Civic Working Group:

The CWG will be composed of a total of 12 people, including 4 representatives from various Santa Monica City Commissions. Applications are being accepted for the remaining 8 positions for a two year term ending in November 2015, with qualifications as follows:

• Five (5) CWG members with broad knowledge of Santa Monica and who possess professional expertise in one or more of a variety of relevant disciplines.
• Three (3) Subcommittee members who possess extensive professional and technical expertise associated with the CWG objectives, in particular the financing, management and programming of venues similar to the Civic.
• Members of the CWG are preferred, but not required, to be Santa Monica residents; or to maintain a business in the City, or to be employed in Santa Monica. Members of the Technical Advisory Subcommittee are exempt from residency requirements.

Objectives of the Working Group:

The CWG’s objectives are to work with City staff and consultants to draft a vision for the future cultural and community use of the Civic as the hub of a cultural campus; explore an appropriate mix of compatible adjacent uses, from open space to additional facilities as identified in the Urban Land Institute report; evaluate potential financing options and programming and operating models for the Civic; convene a community process to gather input and to build consensus regarding the future of the Civic; and provide Council with recommendations regarding the vision, feasible renovation options and the preferred long-term operating model for the Civic.

Application and Timeline:

The deadline for applications is Monday, September 16, 2013 at 5:00 PM. City staff will review the applications, interview candidates, and submit recommendations for consideration at the October 22, 2013 Council meeting. Commission-nominated candidates will also be presented to Council at this meeting.
