R:ED Event - Exchange Resident Session on CentrePlan 2050
The message below is from the City inviting us to a special meeting for Residents of the Exchange District to discuss the CentrePlan 2050. I have not seen the City's CentrePlan 2050, so it may be wonderful, but I am always concerned when the Exchange District is lumped in with 'downtown.' We are distinct, and need to be treated as such. I hope many of you will join me at this meeting to learn about the plans and ensure that the unique nature of the Exchange is properly protected. -- John
The City of Winnipeg is making a long-term plan to get more people living and visiting Downtown. CentrePlan 2050 will guide investment in Downtown parks, streets, and buildings. The plan will help transform what Downtown looks like, how we get around, and how we experience Downtown.
The Exchange District is as an important residential community within Downtown and we want your input to help create CentrePlan 2050.
You are invited to a R:ED workshop on Wednesday, May 31 at 7 p.m. to provide your input on topics that are important to you as a resident of the Exchange District.
