From the Town website

The Town of Winchester wants to improve how it shares and exchanges information with people who live, work, or own a business in Winchester. As part of this effort, the Town is launching an online survey to understand how community members would like to receive communication from the Town, on which topics, and more. Survey participants will directly impact how the Town reaches out in the future.    

Your Donation will be MATCHED this month! 

“The Town wants to share information with the community on a range of topics – trash pickup schedule changes, grant opportunities, events at the library, programs at the senior center, youth and family services resources, and Town Meeting updates, to name a few. “We want to know the best way to get this information to the folks who need it,” said Town Manager Beth Rudolph. 

“We want our residents and businesses to be aware of important information from the Town government, but we also want to improve ways for our residents and businesses to interact with the Town,” added Jennifer Caferella, Community Engagement Coordinator. “The information we learn from this survey will get us moving in that direction.”   

In November 2022, the Town Communications Study Committee completed a yearlong review of town communications and issued recommendations for improvements, including creating a communications plan. This survey is part of the effort to create such a plan for the Town of Winchester.

The survey is anticipated to take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete. The link is available hereTALK TO THE TOWN. The survey will be open from November 6, 2023, to December 8, 2023.
