News From Your Windsor Heights Chamber!
Over the past five weeks we’ve made contact with dozens of Windsor Heights residents and visitors to help them learn more about our support of reclaiming a Main Street for Windsor Heights. The University Avenue Redesign Project, we feel, is vital for our communities future growth. We are now prepared to do informal “house parties” where you can invite your friends and neighbors to your home to learn more about the project. To schedule your University Avenue Redesign House Party call us at 515-331-3207 and let’s get together to answer questions.
