A forum to discuss the zoning, allocation and sale of public land is planned for tonight.
The Social Planning Council of Winnipeg, For the Love of Winnipeg, The Planners’ Network Manitoba, and Outdoor Urban Recreational Spaces-Winnipeg are hosting the discussion at the Millennium Library to learn more about the process and decisions regarding public land.
“In the last couple of years, Winnipeg city council has been allocating public land and creating public controversy,” the SPC said in a release. “From selling land for a boutique hotel on the Red River to proposals to sell golf courses to trades of land for new fire stations, there have been questions raised about how land is being zoned, allocated or sold.
The public will be able to learn from local experts such as planners, researchers and academics about how the city allocates land. The forum runs from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Carol Shields Auditorium.
