Approaching 90 days as your Town Administrator I know one thing for sure, Wellington is a wonderful and resilient community. Thank you for welcoming me with such open arms. Working alongside the Mayor, Board of Trustees, Town staff, Chamber, Main Street Program, and most importantly residents, has been a distinct pleasure.
There are several projects in process that are moving our Town forward. The Water Treatment Plant expansion project has completed the 10 percent design phase. While continuing to work on the plant with excited anticipation for completion before 2025, water conservation remains essential.
Valuing Our Water the Wellington Way is a conservation program designed to educate and empower residents to make choices that benefit individual households and our community as a whole. Small changes make a big impact that over time can lead to cost savings.
Along with active community involvement, we are continuing to implement advanced meters that provide many benefits including real-time leak detection. Further, we are exploring landscaping and irrigation standards to encourage native and low water plants.
The Comprehensive Plan is a document that is developed in three phases, from January 2020 through March 2021. A Steering Committee comprised of Wellington community members has helped guide the Plan’s development, including public events to involve the community in the process. With over 700 community comments, we are excited to continue to gather and engage with feedback through March. The following community vision and pillars speak to the vibrant and thriving community here in Wellington.
