Arts & Science Council (ASC) North is the regional office of the cultural development for the North Mecklenburg County towns of Cornelius, Davidson, and Huntersville. ASC North provides grant opportunities for non-profit groups to implement arts, science, or history projects in North Mecklenburg through the ASC Cultural Project Grant Program (CPG).
The ASC CPG Program has helped fund organizations such as the Catawba Valley Scottish Society, which attracts nearly thirty-thousand visitors to Huntersville with the Amazing Maize Maze and the Loch Norman Highland Games. The CPG program has also supported Huntersville’s Park & Recreation after-school dance programs and the Huntersville Latino Festival. Additionally, ASC provides Operating Support Grants to the Carolina Raptor Center and Historic Latta Plantation, both located in Huntersville. In total, ASC has invested over a million dollars in North Mecklenburg since 2006.
As a result, the region establishes and maintains a cultural identity and area businesses enjoy the economic impact that result from an influx of visitors to these and other cultural organizations’ programs and events. Hotels are booked, meals are eaten, gas tanks are filled, and visitors learn about a region they otherwise may not have known about.
In June, The Huntersville Town Board will be voting on whether or not to renew an appropriation of $15,140 to ASC North. Support the arts and culture in Huntersville as well as its economic development by petitioning to renew the appropriation of said funds to ASC North.
We, the undersigned, support Huntersville’s renewal of funding for ASC North and knowingly believe that said funds directly impact the Town and its area businesses.
An investment in ASC North is an investment in Huntersville.
