Winnipeg, MB - The City of Winnipeg is in the planning stages of building a new North District police station, to replace the existing station #13 located at 266 Hartford Avenue, as part of its transition to a four district police station model. The Winnipeg Police Service’s Four District Model will be achieved with the addition of the North District station.
The existing station #13 does not meet current needs, and the building itself is not adequately located to handle growth in the north end of the city.
The project team has been meeting with stakeholders in the project area so their concerns can be considered and addressed in the site selection process.
The Old Exhibition Grounds site has been identified as a suitable location for the station in terms of service delivery. A community workshop will be held on November 14 to gather further feedback from the community.
Date: Tuesday, November 14
Time: 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Location: North Centennial Recreation & Leisure Facility, 90 Sinclair St.
For those who are unable to attend the community workshop, an online survey is available to gather further public feedback on the project.

Winnipeg, MB - Winnipeggers are invited to attend a public information session on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, regarding the Seine River Stabilization project planned to take place near the corner of Notre Dame Street and Maisonneuve Street in North St. Boniface. Residents will have the opportunity to learn about the project, ask questions, and talk with project team members.
Stabilizing the bank is necessary to keep the Branch 1 Aqueduct safe and ensure a continued supply of water to Winnipeg residents. Construction will take place from winter to summer 2018. Roadworks will also be taking place at this location in summer 2018.
The Branch 1 Aqueduct is a 100-year-old pipe that crosses under the Seine River and carries approximately 40% of the City’s treated water. The banks of the Seine River at the Aqueduct crossing are vulnerable to movement. The City has monitored this area for a number of years. Recent monitoring has revealed that stabilization of the bank is now required as any further movement could damage the Aqueduct.
Date: Wednesday, November 8, 2017
Time: 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Location: Notre Dame Community Centre, 271 Avenue de la Cathédrale
Format: Drop-in (come and go)

Winnipeg, MB - Winnipeggers are invited to attend a public information session on the Chief Peguis Trail Extension West from Main Street to Brookside Boulevard on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. Residents will have the opportunity to view the preliminary design, learn how feedback from previous engagement opportunities was incorporated into the design, and discuss next steps with City representatives and members of the project team.
“Public feedback received throughout the study has really shaped this preliminary design and helped us understand the community’s priorities,” said Devi Sharma, City Councillor for Old Kildonan. “I encourage residents to attend this next Information Session to talk to City staff about next steps for the project and to see how the design has changed based on feedback from the community.”
The approximately 10-kilometre road extension in northwest Winnipeg is an important component of the City’s transportation network. The project will support economic development, create recreation opportunities, and support the completion of the Strategic Inner Ring Road to reduce traffic on neighbourhood streets to make them more accommodating for public transit, walking and cycling.
Once the project is complete, it will be presented to Council for approval in early 2018.
Date: Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Time: 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
