COME TALK WITH US

Regardless of the advances in modern technology, nothing can replace the impact and value of a face-to-face conversation. Therefore, the City of Winter Park invites the community to join their fellow neighbors at “COMMUNITY Conversations” which will offer the opportunity to talk about city-related topics that are important to them. Although the city holds a variety of public meetings throughout the year, such as CoffeeTalk and town meetings, it realizes not everyone has the opportunity or time to attend. “COMMUNITY Conversations” is designed with the busy resident in mind and is offered at a variety of convenient times and locations.

Some reasons to attend:

  • Talk about other things that do not rise to the surface but are still important

  • Share thoughts and perspectives about current city topics

  • Identify Winter Park’s treasures, values and future needs

Please mark your calendars to attend one of the “COMMUNITY Conversations” that best fits your schedule:

• Wednesday, May 11; 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.; Best Western Mt. Vernon Inn, 110 South Orlando Avenue

• Monday, May 16; 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.; Winter Park Public Library, 460 East New England Avenue

• Friday, May 20; 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.; Winter Park Welcome Center, 151 West Lyman Avenue
