Economic Development Authority (EDA)
The Economic Development Authority facilitates economic development activity to maximize use of industrial and commercial land. This will enable the City to help the workforce develop its fullest potential and minimize burden on the individual taxpayer. The EDA takes into account the need to preserve the social, environmental, architectural and cultural fabric of the community.
Community Development Committee (CDC)
The Community Development Committee is an appointed committee of ten representatives by the Common Council of the City of Winchester. The purpose of the Community Development Committee is to provide input and make recommendations regarding the implementation of the City’s CDBG program and other neighborhood and affordable housing strategies.
