Town Offers Civic Center Visioning Charrette Workshops
The Town of Windsor invites the Windsor community to take part in an exciting study regarding the future use of the existing Civic Center site. Led by consultants Wallace, Roberts, and Todd, LLC (WRT), the Town will be offering 4 open house-style workshops ("charrettes") where the community will have the opportunity to provide feedback and input. "The Town Council has for many years had long-term objectives for the Town Green which include fully activating the potential offered by the Green for active retail and other resident-and visitor-serving uses. The study will capture the community’s thoughts and vision for our future," stated Town Manager Linda Kelly.
The Civic Center Visioning Study was approved by the Windsor Town Council on March 2, 2016 to help identify future uses of the area and surrounding spaces. Guided by the Town’s current General Plan Update, the study will provide direction on urban form, public amenities, and economic viability of future development. The charrettes will include visual diagrams and concept alternatives, as well interactive and engaging dialogue sessions with the consultants and Town staff. Mid-day walking tours will also be conducted and will focus on discussion topics such as retail and land use, mobility, and history/culture/ecology. Findings will be presented to the Town Council and Planning Commission sometime in August and September, with dates yet to be announced.
