A lot of us connect with community here through the schools or through our kids' activities (the wonderful theatre program, soccer, dance, etc). But a community pool would be a great addition to town. It would be a place for people to connect--kids would hang out there and be safe, older people would come, families would come to open swim. There would be special events too and summer camp. It could really enhance life here.

I 100% agree. When you drive out of downtown and see the mess of wires in the air and how run down the street looks it’s amazing it’s in Winchester. The increase in property values will be well worth the expense of the work listed above. Also continuing the gas lights from downtown.

The 5 way intersection of Cross St., Holten St., East St., Lowell St. dangerous to cars and pedestrians. Daily, huge tractor trailers accessing industrial properties drive over school bus stop curbs and small island. Cars regularly enter Holton on wrong side of island. Cars heading up Cross enter East St thiniking slight turn is a continuous road.. Streets w/o sidewalks, curbs, and too wide intersection are dangerous for pedestrieans,, ever Increasing to sport venues, hospital lot, lunch walkers. Limited by choice due to danger. Long recognized by Engineering Dept. Residents do not answer as other less dangerous roads addressed.

Beautify north Main Street! Has been on the list for 25 years and nothing has changed. Add curbs, trees, remove overhead wires put them behind the stores or underground, mark the lanes and add parking or at least define it better. get businesses to update signage. It is about as ugly as any strip in any town.

The change to limit parking to 1 hour has made it challenging to get things done downtown. 90 minutes would be a more appropriate time frame. It is very difficult for some services to be provided in 1 hour. (nail salons, sit down restaurants). The paid parking should allot for a longer time frame as well. I realize parking has long been an issue, however timing should be more realistic in relation to services available downtown.
