Winter Park Town Plan (Master Plan)
What is a Town Plan?
Ultimately, the Town Plan sets out a framework, that once implemented, will maintain Winter Park as a great place to live, work, play and learn. This is achieved through a series of goals and policies that are implemented by “short-term” (usually 1-2 years); “mid-term” (2-5 years); and “long term” (5+ years) actions. These actions are usually performed by the Town and potentially other partners in the community.
The Town Plan is updated through a public process. This means that the residents, property owners, and businesses of Winter Park will have many opportunities to weigh in on the issues they see as critical to the Town, the opportunities that should be pursued, and the challenges that can be overcome.
Schedule & Events
Task 1: Foundation (May - August 2017)
The Town hosted a public open house on Tuesday, Sept. 19 to collect input on the community's vision and identify opportunities throughout Winter Park that contribute to the Town's goals. An online questionnaire also collected responses. Review the summary
Task 3: Choices + Implementation (December 2017 - April 2018)
The Winter Park community has told us what they love or would improve about Winter Park, and helped create a vision with four key themes for the future. Residents were able to participate in a public workshop to:
- Review the community’s vision and guiding principles
- Learn about potential opportunities and projects for the Town
- Share your feedback in an interactive round-table discussion with fellow community members
Task 4: Plan Development + Approval (April - Fall 2018)
A draft of the updated Town Plan has been developed, and we'll be hosting a community meeting on Tuesday, September 25 at the Headwaters Community Center for residents to review it. Stop by between 5 and7:30pm to give feedback on the draft plan, and we'll have a short presentation at 6pm. Light refreshments will be served.
