The city describes contact teams as “a group of individuals designated to be the stewards or advocates of their adopted neighborhood plan. They work with city staff towards the implementation of the plan recommendations, review and initiate plan amendments, serve as community points of contact, and work on behalf of other neighborhood stakeholders.”

About the Windsor Park Contact Team:

Windsor Park’s neighborhood plan includes University Hills, but there are now two contact teams for the two neighborhoods, so the Windsor Park contact team focuses on that portion of the plan. The neighborhood plan’s boundaries are:

  • North: US Highway 290
  • East East: Northeast Drive and Manor Road
  • South: Mueller PUD (North of Mueller between I35 and Manor to include the Water tower site, Troublemaker Studios, Rathgeber Village and other land not included in the Mueller PUD)
  • West: Interstate Highway 35
