OurWinnipeg Adopted by City Council

OurWinnipeg and the Complete Communities Direction Strategy received third reading at City Council on July 20, 2011. The plan took effect on August 17, 2011, replacing Plan Winnipeg 2020 as the official development plan guiding growth and change for the city.

OurWinnipeg presents a 25-year vision for the entire city. It positions Winnipeg for sustainable growth, which is key to our future competitiveness. This plan is required by the City of Winnipeg Charter that requires the City to adopt, by by-law, a development plan that sets out long-term plans and policies. The development plan guides and informs more detailed planning on specific topics or for specific areas.

Urban Structure

OurWinnipeg is based on an urban structure - a spatial articulation of city building objectives. It guides the city's future realization, identifying and defining its physical components, not as they are today, but as they are envisioned.

An urban structure differentiates between areas of the city based on their period of growth and descriptive characteristics. This approach recognizes the uniqueness of different neighbourhoods and areas of the city, providing the basis for accommodating growth and change in a way that is sensitive to context.
