Mayoral candidate Paula Havixbeck would undertake a 20-year plan to solve Winnipeg’s crumbling infrastructure woes if elected mayor.

The Charleswood — Tuxedo councillor said her plan includes using the city’s already existing local improvement process in a more formalized, focused way combined with a more aggressive P3 (public-private partnership) structure.

“If we streamline the local improvement process, neighbourhoods can be empowered to choose to get projects rolling,” said Havixbeck. “There is not magic bullet to fixing our city, giving citizens an active role is a starting point.”

Havixbeck said P3s would also be utilized to solve water, sewer and road issues and prioritize neighbourhoods based on the already existing aged-analysis for roads and sewer and water systems.
