The city of Walnut Creek is revamping a popular guide in a combination best expressed by its new title:
"Guide to Arts + Rec."
The combined guide is due in mailboxes in mid-February. It combines the "Recreation Activities Guide" and the "Civic Arts Education Course Catalog." Registration for spring programs starts on Feb. 21.
"Since bringing the Arts and Recreation programs under one umbrella, we have been working toward streamlining our businesses, which is even more essential in these economic times," said Director of Arts, Recreation and Community Services Barry Gordon in a news release. "The Guide to Arts + Rec is a springboard to seamlessly deliver our services to the community and provides a vehicle for the city to cross-promote its programs.”
The department merged the two registration databases last year. It now allows customers to register for classes in either program with a single account and PIN number.
