We had a dynamic and well-attended open house on May 15th. Thank you to those of you who came and shared your thoughts there and/or here at speakupwinnipeg.com!
By way of background for those of you just joining us in this conversation, the City of Winnipeg is making changes to its downtown and city-wide zoning to better reflect the vision of OurWinnipeg and the Complete Communities Direction Strategy. This project is involves text amendments, or small adjustments, to zoning regulations, rather than a comprehensive review. There will be no zoning map changes.
Next step for Winnipeg Zoning By-Law
The City’s Standing Policy Committee on Property and Development considered the proposed amendments to the Winnipeg Zoning By-Law on July 2, 2013 and further discussion at Standing Policy Committee is planned for the fall. The report can be accessed by clicking on item #23 of the July 2, 2013 meeting date at this link.
Next step for Downtown Winnipeg Zoning By-Law
On July 17, 2013, City Council directed the public service to prepare amendments to the Downtown Zoning By-Law in accordance with the recommendations detailed in the report considered on July 17, 2013. Click here to see the Council minutes and report. Staff will prepare the by-law amendments over the summer in preparation for a public hearing in the fall. The date of that hearing will be advertised in newspapers, and will also be provided here on this page.
Together, these two reports will cover a broad set of proposed zoning adjustments aimed at improving alignment between zoning regulations and OurWinnipeg and the Complete Communities Direction Strategy.
