2014 05 22 Precinct K Public Forum (Presentation)

Precinct K development plans raise concerns – Canstar

Sponsored by: Save Our Seine and OURS-Winnipeg Where: St Mary’s Road United Church, 613 St Mary’s Road When: Thursday, May 22, 2014 @ 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm Description: This Public Forum will give Winnipeg residents an opportunity to learn and comment on a current land use development plan for SE St. Boniface along the Seine, Winnipeg’s second longest river. The plan is known as Precinct K. (Precinct K – Precinct Plan Boundary). The approval of this land use development plan is being rushed, forever closing the doors to an opportunity to sustain and enhance greenspace along the Seine river corridor. With no overriding regional park plan, the continuous corridor of the Seine River is threatened. The Riel Community Committee of the City of Winnipeg is expected to vote in June on this development plan, known as Precinct K. The plan will direct all aspects of the future neighbourhood including bridges, roads, community centres, schools, water and sewer, parks and bike paths, to name a few. As citizens have been discovering, there is little provision in the City’s planning process to keep the riverbank and natural/naturalized lands secure from encroachment of commercial and residential development.
