The Town of Windsor Historic Preservation Commission is hosting a community input session on Thursday, Nov. 3 to help in the creation of a preservation plan. The event will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Town Hall located at 301 Walnut St. Residents will be asked to help determine which historic places in Windsor are important to preserve and protect.
President of Tatanka Historic Associates Ron Sladek will facilitate discussion about the status of preservation in Windsor, answer questions for residents about the preservation process, and help establish common desires for the future of local historic buildings.
There are currently 13 locally designated historic properties in Windsor – including Town Hall and the Art & Heritage Center. Preservation of these buildings is moderated by the Historic Preservation Commission that works year-round to identify and educate the community about them. Resident input will be gathered to determine which buildings around town are at the highest demand to be designated as historic.
The Historic Preservation Commission is comprised of five members and works with property owners to protect the historic-built environment through a local landmark program and educational programming in addition to public outreach to promote the preservation of Windsor history. Windsor’s commission officers are volunteer positions and are elected to serve one-year terms.
