The City of Winnipeg is accepting applications for the OurWinnipeg Community Advisory Committee membership.

OurWinnipeg is the City of Winnipeg's municipal development plan that sets the vision for the next 25 years and provides direction in key focus areas. Advisory committee members will help shape the foundation of Winnipeg's future development priorities as the City undertakes the review of the plan.

The deadline for applications is June 7, 2017.
For more information and to apply, please see: here

2. Building Blocks on Balmoral Day Care Opens

I was delighted to be at the opening of the Building Blocks on Balmoral Child Care Centre this month at 51 Balmoral.  

This beautiful historic home has been adaptively re-used to create child care spaces in West Broadway.

This visionary project by Great-West Life in partnership with YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg has resulted in a brilliant solution to a long standing community issue.

Heritage has been preserved, child care spaces have been created and Balmoral street has a lovely new structure that re-creates the sense of a neighbourhood level streetscape.

Kudo's to Great West Life for addressing many community concerns and bringing something much needed to West Broadway!

3. Doors Open Winnipeg

Save the dates of May 27 & 28th! Doors Open 2017 is quickly approaching!

Thank you for your interest in civic issues!
