"The City of Peterborough adopted a Public Art Policy in 2009 that identifies the purpose and applications of Public Art. The policy demonstrates and formalizes the City’s commitment to Public Art for the benefit of city residents and visitors, and also identifies the necessary structures and processes for creating and selecting projects. An annual Public Art fund was introduced for commissioning new public art, and for the management and maintenance of existing art works." - Municipal Cultural Mapping
