Interested in getting involved in your community? Old Town Winchester is growing and looking for dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to help strengthen our historic district. Here are some exciting opportunities to get in the action.
Old Town Welcome Center Concierge
The Old Town Winchester Welcome Center is looking for enthusiastic and engaging members of the community to volunteer as Welcome Center Concierge. As a Concierge, volunteers will have the opportunity to welcome visitors to downtown Winchester and provide information to help create a memorable experience, assist community members in learning about upcoming events and getting engaged in Old Town, and to support the overall mission of the City of Winchester local government.
The Old Town Winchester Welcome Center opened in September 2013 as a place of hospitality and as a hub source of￼information for visitors to downtown and Winchester residents. The Old Town Welcome Center supports the￼City’s goals to be a community of choice in which to live, work and visit.
The OTDB has four working committees; Organization, Promotion, Economic Restructuring and Design.
Organization – Building collaborative partnerships between a broad range of groups, organizations and constituents who need to be involved in the downtown’s revitalization. Past projects include the planning of the Old Town Welcome Center.
Promotion – Changing people’s attitudes toward the commercial district and marketing the district to residents, investors, visitors and others. This committee works on Old Town events and the Old Town Winchester Guide. Past projects include a student discount program and the Chocolate Escape.
Economic Restructuring – Studying and strengthening the downtown’s economic base and working to gradually expand it by helping existing businesses become stronger. Past projects include developing a downtown survey.
Design – Improving the physical appearance of the commercial district and advocating for the improvement, historic preservation and re-use of existing buildings and architecture. Past projects include outdoor Guidelines for Loudoun Street Mall and downtown decorations.
