Local design team

Each pilot community has a local design team made up of residents. The Queensway/Windermere design team will collect input from local residents on what repairs and programs are needed in the community, and work with the designers (architects and engineers) to develop plan options based on the community’s needs and budget. The plans will then be presented to all residents in the community.
