  • Phase 1 what we heard

    During Phase 1 engagement, you shared your thoughts and ideas at an open house and online through surveys, maps, and an ideas board. The project team also held many stakeholder workshops, organized by topic.

    Read the Phase 1 public engagement summary and appendices. The summary gives an overview of the feedback we collected on the five key themes of CentrePlan 2050.

    What we heard

    What we heard in Phase 1 will help to outline the goals and actions that will become part of CentrePlan 2050. We are also looking at existing plans and strategies for our Downtown. Feedback from Phase 1 will also help inform:

    • Draft Downtown Urban Design Guidelines
    • A draft Streetscape Design Standards Manual
    • Options for key Downtown bike routes
    • Options for re-designing Graham Avenue

    Next steps

    In Phase 2, the project team will continue to work on CentrePlan 2050 with input from Downtown stakeholders. Feedback from Phase 2 will help to complete the draft of Centre 2050. In winter 2024, we will also get feedback from Winnipeggers on options for two Downtown bike routes.

    In Phase 3, a draft of CentrePlan 2050 will be shared for public feedback along with an explanation of how feedback was used to create the draft plan.
