Project Status Update - May 2012
Thank you to all those who attended the Corydon Osborne Neighbourhood Plan Open Houses in February.
Your comments, responses to the questionnaire and ideas posted on the session's Comment Wall have been used in refining and beginning to document the community's vision for the Corydon Osborne Neighbourhood.
Since the Open Houses, City of Winnipeg planners have been working with the Project's Community Planning Advisory Committee (CPAC)* to shape the urban design concepts and key directions for the Plan. The project timeframe has been extended to make sure the community's views have been incorporated and this will enable the Plan development process to continue over the summer months.
Following completion of the draft Plan, another opportunity for public input will be scheduled to gather your input.
A copy of the draft Plan will be made available in advance of the session(s) to ensure sufficient time for public review. The Plan Project Team anticipates that this next public review opportunity will be scheduled for the fall or early winter.
Details regarding dates and locations will be posted on this web page, through our social media site, and communicated through email and local media.

*The CPAC is a local community and stakeholder committee formed to bring local knowledge and expertise to the Plan development process.
The Need for a Plan
The Corydon-Osborne area is a neighbourhood of tremendous assets and tremendous opportunities. The introduction of rapid transit with a stop at Osborne and Jessie will support new, transit-oriented development in the areas near the station. Corydon will continue to see growth in the form of commercial mixed-use. And there continues to be interest in residential infill throughout the neighbourhood. The plan will be a tool to help mediate issues arising from change. It will guide decision-makers as they begin to implement the City's new Complete Communities Direction Strategy.
Objectives for the Plan
- to implement key OurWinnipeg and Complete Community concepts and strategies at the neighbourhood level
- to implement the policies of the Transit Oriented Development Handbook
- to lay out a 20 year vision that capitalizes on the Osborne rapid transit station and the Corydon Avenue mixed-use corridor
- to enable pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use infill development
- to address sustainability issues
