WINSLOW — Kennebec Valley Council of Governments is partnering with Winslow to facilitate two virtual opportunities for residents to participate in a comprehensive planning process.

The community meetings are planned from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 16, and Tuesday, June 22, via Zoom. Through this virtual forum residents will help to shape Winslow’s goals for the next 10 years and have an opportunity for their opinions are heard on issues affecting the town now and into the future.

Key topics to be discussed will include economic development, housing, public services, land use and development, and creating a 10-year vision, but the meeting is also an open forum.

“I’m looking forward to revitalizing Winslow’s comprehensive planning efforts in the wake of the hiatus of the Planning Committee due to COVID-19,” said KVCOG Community Planner Joel Greenwood, according to a news release from KVCOG. “We’re about halfway through the comprehensive planning process in Winslow now, and having the community’s input at this stage is an important step in planning for Winslow’s future.”

The comprehensive plan is a non-regulatory document which Winslow is updating. The document will be used as a guide for all aspects of development over the next 10-12 years. Upon its completion, the plan will be reviewed by the state, after which there will be a final opportunity for public comment before being voted on to be officially adopted by the town.
