About City Planning & Design
The Urban Planning and Design Division brings people together to gather ideas, discuss opportunities and challenges, and provide professional advice about current and future land use and development in Winnipeg
This includes responding to urgent planning needs by reviewing proposed developments to make sure they follow existing policies; reviewing designs for buildings and public spaces; providing planning advice to City departments and the general public; and preparing recommendations for decision-makers.
It also involves planning for future land uses by supporting the creation of long-range policies through research, analysis and public engagement; planning and designing parks and recreation spaces; and developing programs to strengthen community recreation infrastructure and conserve heritage buildings.
We also work to encourage corporate and city-wide environmental sustainability, and preserve riverbanks and natural areas.
Planning a community needs the help of many people working together for a common goal, including the public, community groups, developers, other City departments, and elected officials.
