Virginia city considers P3 for community center, affordable housing
Virginia – City of Winchester leaders are mulling a potential public-private partnership (P3) to build a new community center and affordable housing in a project that would be incorporated into the city’s Comprehensive Plan update.
Winchester Friendship Park Pavilion
Officials are considering two sites: a former radio station property that recently changed hands and the city-owned Friendship Park.
A potential developer could build the community center in return for land to construct senior housing.
The Winchester Planning Commission will host an open house on the Comprehensive Plan update on August 31 to present potential scenarios and character drawings for areas identified for redevelopment. The City Council will hold a public hearing prior to the final vote on adoption.
