Ożarów Mazowiecki

In Ożarów Mazowiecki, the aim of the consultation "Developing a strategy for cultural development in the Municipality of Ożarów Mazowiecki" was to obtain information on the frequency of citizen's use of the cultural offer of the Municipality, as well as on their assessment of the attractiveness of the current cultural offer, and obtaining suggestions on the directions of the cultural development in Ożarów.

The consultations were one of the stages of the consultation process on the culture development strategy in the Municipality of Ożarów Mazowiecki. A survey and a face-to-face meeting at the Municipality Office were planned during the consultation.

There were no technical or organizational problems during the consultations that would have prevented any of the planned stages of consultation.
