The document outlines a 20-year planning strategy to guide development along the Assiniboine and Red rivers, connecting six different neighbourhoods.

Time ran out for a civic committee this morning to consider a report outlining a development strategy for public and private lands along the Red and Assiniboine rivers.

The last item on the downtown development committee agenda was an administrative report on the Go To The Waterfront document.

But the four-councillor committee was unable to continue when Jeff Browaty (North Kildonan) didn’t attend and Coun. Brian Mayes (St. Vital) said he had to leave shortly after 10 a.m. to attend another meeting. The downtown development committee meeting could not continue with only the two remaining members, Mike Pagtakhan (Point Douglas) and Jenny Gerbasi (Fort Rouge-East Fort Garry).

The meeting started 15 minutes late waiting for Mayes to arrive.

The Go To The Waterfront document outlines a 20-year planning strategy to guide development along the two rivers, connecting six different neighbourhoods.

The proposed strategy was drawn up following a series of public consultations and involved participation from several agencies, including The Forks, Tourism Winnipeg, Economic Development Winnipeg, CentreVenture, Enterprises Riel, and Rivers West.

The proposal needs to be approved by council before it becomes official, but it can’t get to council until it first clears the downtown development committee.

The report was placed on the agenda for the committee’s December meeting.
