Press Release: Parks and Open Space Master Plan Public Input Opportunity

Parks Master Plan Press Release

The City of Winooski is creating a Parks and Open Space Master Plan and needs your help to define a vision for the future. The plan will create equitable and connected public space, with the goal of having a park within a ten-minute walk of every resident.

The plan is being led by the City of Winooski in partnership with Omnes, a landscape architecture, planning, and art studio based in the historic mill town of Easton, Pennsylvania. Omnes will guide the four-month planning process, which will include four public engagement sessions. The planning process is community-driven, with the voices of all informing strategies for both improvement and implementation of new parks within the City.

The Omnes team will be at Rotary Park for the annual Halloween in Winooski celebration on Saturday, October 26th from 5 to 8 PM, soliciting residents’ feedback, ideas, and visions for the future of Winooski. All from the community are invited and encouraged to participate, and interpreters will be available for speakers of Nepali, Swahili, and Arabic. Make your voice heard, and let’s weave the fabric of Winooski’s parks and open spaces together.

The project is generously funded through a grant awarded to the City of Winooski by the National Recreation and Parks Association. More information regarding this project and other public input opportunities will be announced on winooskivt.gov. To learn more about Omnes and their mission, visit omnes.studio/about.
