Winnipeg, MB – The City of Winnipeg is looking for neighbourhood voices to help shape the future of Winnipeg’s transportation network.
In anticipation of public engagement on Transportation Master Plan: 2050 (TMP205) launching next month, residents are now being invited to apply to be part of new Neighbourhood Advisory Groups that will, throughout the project, give us critical insight into transportation challenges, needs, and opportunities from specific geographic perspectives.
Each of Winnipeg’s defined community areas – Lord Selkirk-West Kildonan; East Kildonan-Transcona; Riel; Assiniboia; and City Centre – will be represented by a group that will meet three times between November, 2020 and April, 2021.
Residents can apply online at winnipeg.ca/tmp2050. Applicants will be contacted by October 29, 2020 and groups will each have their first meeting between November 2 and 20, 2020.
TMP2050 will provide the long-term vision for transportation in Winnipeg, and the methods and means to move our city and people into the future. Through a combination of technical research, data analysis, and public and stakeholder engagement, TMP2050 will help ensure our transportation system supports quality of life and economic vitality for years to come.
