Winooski Main Street Revitalization Project
Three Public Events Leading up to a Special Election Bond Vote & Citywide Meeting
The City of Winooski announces three public events in advance of a Main Street Revitalization Special Election Bond Vote that will take place on May 8, 2018.
The City of Winooski is planning to complete a full reconstruction of the Winooski Main Street corridor from the New England Central railroad bridge north to the Colchester Town line (approximately 4,000 feet). The reconstruction project includes upgrades to existing water, wastewater, electric and telecommunication, stormwater, roadway, streetscape, traffic, and landscape elements within the public right-of-way. Community input is vital in deciding how this project supports Winooski’s Municipal Master Plan, Transportation Master Plan, forwards the intention of the City’s Form Based Code zoning, and benefits the long-term needs of the community.
