William R. Clement Parkway Phase 1

On December 13, 2017 Council approved the motion from the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works that the William R. Clement Parkway component of this project is allowed to continue. Council decided that any planning for the east/west connection of the William R. Clement Parkway extension project must follow and be included in the Precinct Plan for the South Wilkes area. The City will not approve or engage any major capital infrastructure planning in these areas until a new Precinct Plan is adopted by Council. Council, through the OurWinnipeg review, shall rank the prioritization of the South Wilkes Precinct as part of the OurWinnipeg and Complete Communities review. Work on the WRCP north of CN (Ridgewood) to Grant may be considered as a first phase.

*Cost-Benefit Point Ratio is used by all departments to prioritize the City’s Investment Plan. The Cost-Benefit Point Ratio is determined using a Multi-Criteria Prioritization model and helps rank the priority of each project. The Multi-Criteria Prioritization model uses a set of benefits criteria that was developed for the entire City. Projects are ranked based on their respective cost-benefit point ratio and level of risk if the project is deferred, and then scheduled based on priority, and financial and logistical constraints. This information is then used to develop transparent and defendable budget submissions by each department for Council consideration. A defined project scope of work is required to determine an accurate set of benefit points. Some of the unfunded major capital projects do not yet have defined scope of work.
