City Planning & Design
We bring people together to discuss opportunities and challenges facing our city. This work includes:
Discover Winnipeg's trails and public spaces
Downtown planning, urban design and the Downtown Winnipeg Zoning By-law
Criteria for the consistent review of applications for development
How land is developed and used
Housing programs and policies
Preserving heritage spaces, structures and buildings
Waterways permits and riverbank management
Our work is guided by policies from OurWinnipeg 2045, the City's 25-year plan for strategic growth and development. It provides a vision and policies that influence how City services are provided, how residents get around the city, and how the city grows.
The Complete Communities Direction Strategy 2.0 is our plan for a more vibrant city. It is designed on an urban structure that describes its vision for land uses and development in Winnipeg's future.
