[ARCHIVED] Winona Residents Invited to Share Ideas for Winona’s Future

comp plan ig post general

Engage Winona and the City of Winona want to hear your hopes and dreams for Winona’s future - and there are many ways you can get involved!

As part of ongoing engagement for the City of Winona’s Comprehensive Plan Update, we’re inviting residents to work together to create a shared vision of Winona’s future. Residents are invited to share what’s most important to you about Winona, ideas you have for Winona’s future, and ways you would like to be involved in the planning process.

Equity, technology, and sustainability are key themes that will be incorporated into each aspect of the new Comprehensive Plan. The plan will create specific, achievable goals that the city and community can work toward in a wide variety of topic areas, from land use to economic development to recreation and arts.

Engage Winona is leading public engagement on this project throughout 2021-2022. We’re hosting a variety of activities to meet folks where they are and make sure we’re hearing from as many community members as possible. Engagement activities include listening sessions, pop-up engagement at community events, digital surveys and activities, and more! Attend a community conversation

Engage Winona is hosting community conversations at a variety of dates and times. Sessions are interactive and designed to spark ideas - and connections! Some sessions are in-person and some are virtual. Feel free to attend the session that best meets your needs. For in-person gatherings, masks are encouraged, and chairs will be spaced out. We're asking folks to respect the boundaries of others at our gatherings. RSVPs are requested but not required.
