How did Windsor become Sonoma County’s safest city? This and other related topics will be explored at the Windsor Democratic Club meeting on Thursday, March 24, at 7 p.m. at the Windsor Round Table Pizza, 8499 Old Redwood Highway. Guest speaker Lois Fisher, who has served on the Town of Windsor Planning Commission for more than 12 years, will discuss the design principles that created a transit-friendly Windsor downtown from scratch, and the role that the Planning Commission has had in this and other achievements.
Ms. Fisher is the president of Fisher Town Design, a firm that creates new rules to make walkable neighborhoods an alternative to suburban sprawl. She will touch on her views as Windsor approaches the update of its general plan. As Windsor becomes increasingly attractive to millennial home purchasers, in part due to the proximity to rail transit and to the town’s safe, family-oriented atmosphere, the continued thoughtful work of planners is very important. This meeting should be of particular interest as our county attempts to navigate through a continuing housing crisis. Windsor can be seen as an example of how smart growth can be achieved.
Note: Ms. Fisher will not be addressing the Lytton Tribal Trust land issue.
The meeting is free and open to the entire community. Pizza will be served.
