The City of New Bedford is working hard to become a major cultural community in Massachusetts. All can agree, whether it's performing arts, waterfront festivals, visual arts, and special events, New Bedford is certainly making its mark. City officials are making public their "Cultural Plan" this week, and the consultant that helped put together the plan, Margo Saulnier visits Townsquare Sunday this week to discuss some of the highlights.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
