Mark your calendar for Thursday, October 20 to attend an open house regarding changes to the Winnipeg Zoning By-Law.

In addressing the rental housing challenges in the South Winnipeg-St. Norbert ward, I’ve been working closely with many City Departments, including Planning, Property and Development.  One of the keys to this complex issue is City by-laws and their enforcement.  The last review of the Winnipeg Zoning By-law was completed in 2014. The Winnipeg Public Service has completed another review of the By-law and is seeking input on proposed amendments.  Their report proposes a total of 66 “minor” amendments and 10 considerable or “major” amendments, referred to in Appendix “A” and “B” of the report.

The main focus of the public engagement on October 20 is the 10 “major” amendments in this report, to which one additional change was added regarding attached secondary suites.  The City is asking for input on a total of 11 “major” amendments as shown below.

If you are unable to attend the open house, you can still view the open house display boards and provide feedback by filling out a survey.   Additional comments may be provided via email at: ppd-zoningreview@winnipeg.caNOTE:  The deadline to provide feedback is October 27, 2016.
