The Winchester Fire and Rescue Department’s (WFRD) Community Risk Reduction Division will begin offering in-home life safety assessments and group presentations this month. The team will follow the National Fire Prevention Association’s (NFPA) Remembering When™: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults guide that seeks to solve two problems common for seniors – fires and falls.
The Winchester-Frederick County Metropolitan Planning Organization (WinFred MPO) scheduled four public meeting options for residents to guide the greater Winchester area’s transportation future. Residents and stakeholders may attend any one of the four meetings, which will inform participants on a recent regional transportation effort to guide decision makers on future transportation projects. The meetings will be an open house format, where participants can drop in at any time between 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
Notice to the Public: Proposed Adjustment to the Voting Ward Boundaries and Precincts
TO THE CITIZENS OF WINCHESTER:
Notice is hereby given that the Common Council of the City of Winchester will conduct a public hearing and receive public comment at the Tuesday, March 8, 2022 Regular Meeting, beginning at 6:00 pm, on the following:
In observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday, January 17, the City will follow the below schedule.
The City of Winchester will follow the below schedule in observance of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
Help us improve the WinchesterVA.gov website! We’re looking for local residents to test out a new website structure by performing a short series of online tasks.
If you are interested in participating in this short test, please submit the interest form ASAP and we'll be in touch if selected for the first round of tests. We hope to get a good representation from all four wards.
We wish the circumstances requiring this announcement were different, but City Code requires vacant seats on Council to be filled within 30 days, and Councilor McKiernan would want future decisions to be made with the city adequately represented.
So, if you live in the Fourth Ward and are interested in serving on Council (interim appointment), please submit an application and resume by 5 pm on 12/12/21 (link below). The successful candidate will be interviewed prior to and appointed at the Council meeting on December 14, 2021. Interim term ends 12/31/22.
The City of Winchester is mourning the loss of Winchester Common Council member Judy McKiernan who passed away early this morning.
NOTE: Deadline has been extended to February 11, 2022.
