Update from City of Winnipeg-Additional consultation for proposed zoning change for south of Corydon Avenue
Additional consultation is planned regarding proposed zoning
change from R1 to R2 south of Corydon Avenue
City would like to thank all those who submitted their feedback on the
Corydon Osborne Area Plan implementation at the open house, by email, and
through online surveys. We received over 150 submissions.
The Winnipeg Public Service has reviewed the feedback that has been
submitted up to this point.
We would like to provide a brief summary of what we have heard so far.
1. The majority of respondents support the
Planned Development Overlay (PDO) and the design review process that would
be required for developments other than single-family residential.
2. The majority of
respondents also support the proposed Transit Oriented Development (TOD)
zoning district, which would allow additional height and density for
properties that are immediately adjacent to rapid transit stations.
3. For the Medium Density Residential,
Higher Density Residential, and Low Rise Mixed Use Residential Areas, which
are primarily north
of Corydon Avenue, the majority of respondents support rezoning
properties from “R1” to “R2”.
4. For the Lower Density Residential Area,
which is south
of Corydon Avenue, and includes the streets Jessie Avenue, Warsaw
Avenue, and Mulvey Avenue, feedback on rezoning properties from “R1”
to “R2” was mixed. While some respondents in this area support the
proposed rezoning, we received a number of responses that indicated
concerns with the proposed zoning change.
Based on this feedback, the Public Service has
determined that for the proposed rezoning from “R1” to “R2” in the Lower
Density Residential Area, additional engagement will be carried out prior
to the scheduling of a public hearing. Next
Step – Continuing the Conversation The City will undertake further public engagement for the
proposed change from “R1” to “R2” in the Lower Density Residential
Area. This will include a workshop focused on the rezonings,
including options. There will also be tools to engage online.
It is anticipated that public engagement for the next phase of the project
will take place in June
2016, including a workshop. The City
will notify residents in the Lower Density Residential Area by mail once we
have confirmed details.
