Development Application Notification Review underway and asking for the public’s input

Released: 10:01 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – Winnipeggers are invited to provide their input on how the City of Winnipeg provides notification for land development applications. Residents are encouraged to provide input through an online survey. Input will be considered as part of a review of the City’s land development application notification processes.

The Land Development Application Notification Review is looking at ways to improve public notification of land development applications to ensure processes are as open and transparent as possible. Land development notification includes the ways the public is told about applications for both minor and major land development, including variances, conditional uses, rezoning, and subdivision of land. The public is currently notified of land development through newspaper advertisements and on-site postings, depending on the type of development.

Notifying the public of land development applications gives residents the opportunity to participate and provide input as part of development processes that shape the future of our community. Members of Council, the public, and the Public Service recognize the importance of updating our public notification processes to reflect changes in the residents’ expectations and changes in communications technology.

The online survey will ask for input on types of notification the public would like to see, how they would like to be notified of land development applications in their area, and how they would like notifications to look. The survey will be open until June 18, 2018. For more information, please visit winnipeg.ca/devnotificationreview.

Public invited to attend an open house for Winnipeg’s Recreation & Parks Strategies

Released: 10:45 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – The City of Winnipeg is inviting members of the public to share their input on Winnipeg’s Recreation & Park Strategies and where their priorities lie at upcoming open houses. The Strategies will provide a 25-year framework to help guide recreation and parks programs, services, policies, standards and procedures, and future investment in existing and new infrastructure.

The City is facing some difficult challenges in maintaining its aging infrastructure and making new investments to meet future needs. Much of Winnipeg’s existing recreation and parks infrastructure is at or near the end of its useful lifecycle, and we need to find out where Winnipeggers want to see future investment. As Winnipeg continues to grow and change, the need to make strategic, forward-thinking decisions to ensure the City can deliver high-quality recreation and parks services is essential.
