What is content-neutral signage?

You may have heard us talking about this lately. Communities have the ability to decide to limit the  total percentage of window space that is covered by signs.

You are invited to participate in a follow-up conversation to help answer many of the questions that you had at our first community dialogue night on May 15 this year.

You will hear from practitioners in the fields that connect this issue, including treatment, recovery, prevention, and justice.

You will also hear about ways to get involved and make a difference.

We are excited to share the results of our recent annual meeting. Your participation was thoughtful, interesting, and will be enormously helpful as we pursue these goals for the next year and beyond. Thank you for the time you took to attend and respond. We look forward to working with you in the future!

Many thanks to the community members who attended and participated in our first community dialogue night on May 15! Parents, school board members, school faculty, people in recovery, law enforcement, and health care representatives attended, as well as many others interested in working together to strengthen safety and health. The dialogue was facilitated by Julian Portilla and his graduate student, who used creative and interactive methods to generate ideas and discussions, including lots of movement.

Thursday evening, the Winooski Coalition, in collaboration with Champlain College, invites you to attend a community dialogue night at the O'Brien Community Center.

This dialogue night will provide a creative way for residents to discuss issues related to substance abuse and misuse, and work together to increase safety and health.

The event is free, and dinner will be provided. The evening will start at 6 PM and end at 8 PM.
