Our Winnipeg draft plan consultation begins

May 27, 2010

Our Winnipeg is Winnipeg’s 25-year blueprint that will guide the physical, social, environmental, and economic development of our City of Winnipeg.

There are also associated four direction strategies (secondary plans) that provide more detail. The Secondary plans consist of Complete Communities, Sustainable Water and Waste, Sustainable Transportation and Sustainable Winnipeg.   It has involved talking and engaging thousands of Winnipeggers over the last year and, through this broad consultation, the goal is to provide a vision of Winnipeg’s future that is shared by all Winnipeggers.   A majority of City Councillors presently want to have Our Winnipeg and the secondary plans approved by City Council this summer therefore the time lines afforded to the second phase of public consultation on the actual documentation are very tight.   Consultation Schedule   Public Information Session - Canad Inns Fort Garry Monday May 31, 2010 Time: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM   Come out and talk to City employees about Our Winnipeg document as well as the four direction strategies (secondary plans): Complete communities, Sustainable Winnipeg, Sustainable Water and Waste and Sustainable Transportation. City staff will be on hand to discuss the content and answer questions you might have. You will have the opportunity to look at the documents, maps and other information.   Opportunity Roundtable Tuesday June 01, 2010                                                                           Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM   These sessions are our way of ‘checking back’ with previous roundtable participants.  This is an opportunity to introduce you to the Draft OurWinnipeg Package, look at sections in more detail, and to hear your comments and questions.    It is an intense burst of information sharing, and we want to provide you a strong information base to start exploring the documents.  We also want to advise you of next steps, which include a major public hearing.    Public Information Session - River East Collegiate Tuesday June 01, 2010 Time: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM City Building Round Table - Millennium Library Tuesday June 01, 2010 Time: 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM   Housing, Recreation, Libraries Round Table - Millennium Library Wednesday June 02, 2010 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM Public Information Session - Sturgeon Creek Community Centre Wednesday June 02, 2010 Time: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM.
