The DWCC has a vision of biblical proportions. The words of a prophet from 2,500 years ago are still fitting for our city— ‘divine intervention’ looks like this: “Old men and old women will come back to the city, sit on benches on the streets and spin tales, move around safely with their canes — a good city to grow old in. And boys and girls will fill the public parks, laughing and playing — a good city to grow up in.”
Our vision is that downtown Windsor would be a good place to grow up and a good place to grow old, and we will collaborate and partner with anyone who shares this vision for the city.
Our mission is to renew the city through nurturing neighbourhood engagement. That happens when groups of residents identify valued activities and help to make them happen. These include a network of homes being a ‘faithful life-giving presence’, community gardens, barrier-free sports programs, community celebrations, art nights and neighbourhood projects (such as crime prevention initiatives, special events, cleanups, and more).
