In 2007, the Tremont Winning Communities organization was formed through a series of public meetings with the goal of assisting the community in meeting the vision developed by its citizens. To date, we have organized, funded, and completed several projects including the Tiber Creek Project, the new Community Center, and clean-up of the Southeast Lake.
The Winning Communities mission statement serves as a guide throughout the entire community planning process: "The mission of Winning Communities is to improve the quality of life in Tremont, to increase the pride of current residents and to entice new people and businesses to live and work here.”

Sampson Street Revitalization
Tremont Winning Communities (TWC) is announcing our next new project. The project “Sampson Street Revitalization” helps our organization fulfill our mission of “improving the quality of life in Tremont, to increase the pride of current residents and to entice new people and businesses to live and work here”. The project entails the landscaping and redesign of the two blocks beginning at Route 9 and continuing south to South St. It will bring a “new look” to our downtown therefore enhancing the image of our village. The attractive design will create a more welcoming atmosphere for Tremont residents and out of town visitors. In addition, the new design will provide for safer pedestrian and automotive traffic in the heart of the village.
We discussed the need to take a fresh look at our goals and get renewed input from the public. We held several community meetings and worked to involve Tremont youth with the process. This was done through our "TEAM" Initiative.
The TEAM Initiative (Total Engagement Adds Meaning) developed students through training and followed the Winning Communities process of creating a Vision/Action plan in Tremont.
Our newly formed teams are working to enhance the community. One project is the Sampson Street Revitalization.
