The City of Winsted appointed a Downtown Vibrancy Task Force on January 17, 2012 to develop a shared vision for the downtown and make recommendations to carry the vision forward. The Downtown Vibrancy Task Force completed its work by presenting a Downtown Vibrancy Report to the Winsted City Council on July 17, 2012. The City Council, at its February 15, 2013 Goal Setting Session set the goal of appointing a committee of individuals to carry out the recommendations of the Downtown Vibrancy Task Force. Commissions are intended to utilize members of the community in an advisory capacity to assist the City Council and staff with achieving the goals and objectives for the City and to ensure that the ideas of citizens are well represented in the policy making process. The Downtown Vibrancy Commission consists of five members who are either residents of the City of Winsted or are stakeholders in the downtown area, as well as two ex-officio members consisting of a City Council Member and a staff member. The work of the Downtown Vibrancy Commission will be to put the recommendations of the Downtown Vibrancy Task Force into action.
The Downtown Vibrancy Commission is appointed by the City Council and holds regular meetings the second Tuesday of each month at 3:30 p.m. in the Lewis Room at Winsted City Hall, unless otherwise noted on the main page of this web site.
