In August of 2004, the South Jersey Economic Development District, in cooperation with the Cumberland County Cultural & Heritage Commission, retained Nancy Moses, Planning & Development Consultant and Dr. Thomas A. Reiner to develop a Cultural Plan for the County. Its primary goal is to use cultural and heritage resources to strengthen the County’s economic base, providing jobs for current residents, attracting new ones, and adding new enterprises. Secondary goals are to improve the quality of life for all those in the County, and to build the capacity of the cultural/heritage sector. This Plan will guide the Cultural & Heritage Commission’s work program over the coming months and years, and implementation of the recommendations contained therein is considered a high priority.

The Commission’s Americans with Disabilities Act Plan sets the standards and procedures the Commission maintains to ensure that its programming and facilities are accessible to the widest possible audience. This plan has received an “Excellent” rating from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Updated every three years, the Commission encourages the use of this plan as a template for cultural and heritage organizations who have set barrier-free access in all its definitions as a significant goal. In 2012, the Cultural Access Network standardized ADA Plan formatting with a simplified questionnaire.
