City News Hour July 10, 2017 at 5:30 PM
Every town has that quintessential main street. What could University Avenue look like? What steps could we take to help transform our main street? A strong main street is the heart of a City.  Creating a thriving downtown is no small task for a City. It requires local leaders, business stakeholders and residents to come together to identify our vision, our identity and to showcase our assets to the region. The new Windsor Heights Comprehensive Plan indicates that an additional study for the University Avenue Redesign is necessary to consider the complete streets concept and alternatives.  The City of Windsor Heights and Bolton and Menk invite you to attend the University Avenue Redesign Kick-Off Meeting at the City News Hour on July 10, 2017 at 5:30 pm at the council chambers at 1133 66th Street. https://www.facebook.com/events/386547028407959/
