Congrats Winfield!

Last night was a win for small business and common sense in the City -- two things not often achieved in Rochester as of late.

Congrats to Chris and the Winfield on the approvals to move forward with the new parking lots in North Winton Village. This is a direct need generated by revitalization within the city from PRIVATE money. Proving that if you make for a friendly business environment by facilitating small business, revitalization will follow. In our 15 minute city the Winfield could be located anywhere and service the same amount of customers and provide the same number of jobs that they do in the city.

We need to continue to cultivate these private economic development opportunities or they will move to the 'burbs. Congrats again Winfield, and thanks for calling the City home.
