In an effort to provide opportunities for open dialogue, Vice-Mayor John Hill and Councilor Kim Herbstritt will hold several community informational meetings at various locations. The entire community is invited to attend the meetings to hear the presentations (where applicable), ask questions, brainstorm ideas, and/or discuss community issues/concerns.
This is Vice-Mayor Hill’s second round of meetings. In 2018, Vice-Mayor Hill held four meetings to discuss the City’s infrastructure and upcoming capital projects. For 2019, Vice-Mayor Hill will begin with discussions about the City’s Development Services and then transition to discussions about Public Safety and Schools in 2020.
“I greatly enjoyed last year’s forums and having the opportunity to meet new people,” stated Vice-Mayor John Hill. “With the recent recognitions about Winchester’s growth and large development projects coming soon, I thought a discussion on planning, zoning and economic development would be timely for the 2019 meetings.”
CouncilorHerbstritt’s first communitymeeting in May will be an openforum and she expectsto schedule more meetings in the future.
“I’m a big proponent of face-to-face interactions and two-way conversations in local government,” stated Councilor Kim Herbstritt. “I’m excited about the opportunity to have meaningful discussions about Winchester with local residents and finding ways we can work together to continue moving Winchester forward.”
