The final round of public engagement is planned for November 2017, which includes another series of land owner and stakeholder meetings, as well as final public information session which will include a viewing of a video simulation of the proposed route. The purpose of this round of engagement is to present the final recommended design and seek comments from the public and stakeholders.

Information session

Date:  Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Time: 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. 
Location: Red River Community Centre, 293 Murray Ave.

For those who require alternate formats or ASL interpretation in order to participate, please contact David Jopling, public engagement lead at 204-943-3178 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by October 29, 2017.

The intent of the public engagement process for the Preliminary Design Study is to provide information and collect local feedback to:

  • Inform the community and stakeholders of the intended plans and share any changes to the design;
  • Help plan pedestrian and cycling infrastructure and amenities;
  • Help identify connections to community destinations;
  • Ensure the project complements adjacent development;
  • Address the requirements of the Environmental License; and,
  • Meet with affected landowners and identify property requirements.

Previous Engagement

From 2014 to 2016, four public engagement events were held to collect feedback for the Chief Peguis Trail Extension West Functional Design Study. A public information session held on June 29, 2016 at Red River Community Centre had 244 people in attendance. An online survey closed on July 12, 2016 with 84 responses. Comments received through this public engagement process indicated a repeated desire for an uninterrupted flow of traffic and fewer traffic lights; this feedback was considered in the latest phase of the design. Read more about what was said during previous public engagement activities under the related links tab.

Following the 2016 engagement events, a series of landowner and stakeholder meetings were facilitated from February 2017 to June 2017, including a public information session which was held on June 6, 2017 at the Red River Community Centre, where 244 individuals signed-in and 113 comment forms were collected. An online survey received 112 responses. A summary of these engagement events and the feedback received from the public, stakeholder and landowners is available online here.

Dear Mr. Farthing: 

Little Mountain Park is in danger and we need your help.

 

We are the  Little Mountain Park Conservancy Group Inc., an association dedicated to the preservation and continued well being of Little Mountain Park.  The Park occupies approximately 160 acres of naturalized tall grass prairie and wooded trails, located on the site of the village of Mount Royal (also known as Little Stony Mountain), Winnipeg’s first quarry.  It is home to unique and endangered species of flora, as well as a robust population of raptors, migratory song birds, deer and other mammals.  The Park’s stunning mix of naturalized prairie, wooded trails, abundant fruit stands and quarry pond make it a unique and treasured destination for dog lovers, bird watchers, hikers and nature buffs.

 

The Park’s unique ecoystem is threatened by recurring plans to annex all or part of it for the extension of the Chief Peguis Trail.  It is also threatened by encroaching industrial development.  

We have successfully joined forces with advocate Judith Stearns and the Winnipeg Humane Society to end the annual and brutal cull of Richardson Ground Squirrels in the Park by the City of Winnipeg, a move that is slowly seeing the resurgence of the Park's animal ecosystem.  We wish to do more.

 

Our goal is to secure a long term commitment to the preservation of the Park as well as provisions for its appropriate maintenance.  We are seeking the support of other groups dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of fragile ecosystems.  We hope to devise a sound future for Little Mountain Park with your help.  In particular, we are looking for allies to help us establish the Park as a vital naturalization area and unique  eco-system.  We hope to organize a Bio Blitz in order to inventory the Park's many species, and are seeking expert advice to do so, advice that perhaps your organization can provide.  We are also seeking public support for our Park's ecosystem from lobby groups and intervenors in public policy discussion.

We welcome you to join our efforts.  We look forward to meeting with you soon.

 

Sincerely,

 

Karen Zoppa, Secretary

on behalf of the Little Mountain Park Conservancy Group Inc.. 

Hi Lloyd,

 

Christopher Lepa, Forestry Technician 2 responded and investigated the location and has provided an update that you will find below. Chris also said that if you wish to speak with him further on this matter, please call him at (Phone: 204-986-2006).

 

 

 

Good Morning James,

 

I inspected the site late Friday afternoon and there certainly is some significant heavy construction taking place within close proximity to the park boundary.  Any excavation that occurred adjacent to the large cottonwood has now been filled in, so I followed up with Brett Ransom, Senior Project Engineer for Stantec, who indicated that all of the tree roots that intersected the pipeline alignment were trimmed according to specifications.  In addition, he also assured that there are plans for site restoration in late spring once the spring thaw is over and the ground has been given an opportunity to settle.  The Urban Forestry Branch will inspect the condition of some of the smaller trees (https://www.google.ca/maps/@49.9607974,-97.2418882,3a,64.9y,208.49h,89.7t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sv0NQ3I5LhsKjXUhSJIsu8w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656)

to determine if any removals and replacements are required, and you may provide Mr. Johnson with my contact information if he wishes to discuss any concerns or questions he may have moving forward.

 

Cheers,

Hi Lloyd,

I received your inquiry from the Mayor's Office today about the construction on Farmers Road and concern for a large Cottonwood you reference in your email. Urban Forestry will be out to do an inspection of the site to assess these concerns. I've also emailed Stantec Consultants requesting an update about this concern and for other plant material possibly affected by this work. The following attachment was sent to Stantec and Urban Forestry identifying the location of the tree. Anything further from Stantec and/or Urban Forestry I will gladly relay to you.

Hello.
I'm sorry to trouble you but I have a concern about Little Mountain Park. The R.M. of Rosser and Stantec are putting in a water pipe down Farmers road. This located on the Northern edge of the Park. I am concerned about the destruction of the environment and history of Little Mountain. There is a large Cottonwood tree planted along their path. This is the last piece of the village of Mount Royal. The quarry's are the first the the City used. Which is a piece of Winnipeg and Manitoba history. I fear that the construction will impact all these things that are important to the people and future generations. If you are interested in our parks history please check out my web site at www.lmppoa.ca. I have enclosed a letter I received about the construction.
Thank you for your time.
Mr. L. Johnson
Chair
Little Mountain Park Conservancy Group Inc.

"Parks was just notified by Stantec Consulting Ltd. that the RM of Rosser will be closing Farmers Road from Klimpke Road to Brookside Boulevard as early as next week for a construction project to install water main along Farmers road. The closure is estimated for six weeks. Due to this, the North side access points will be closed off to all traffic; vehicular and pedestrian including the parking lot on Farmers Road.



I have requested Stantec Consulting Ltd to send us any updated information about this project. Once I have it, I'll pass on the information to you so you can notify your members. As far as I understand, Klimpke Road should be open during the construction period and our parking lot on Klimpke Road will be available for park users.



Regards,



James

Hi,

 

Thank you for participating in the Chief Peguis Trail (CPT) Extension West from Main Street to Brookside Boulevard project earlier this year. A public engagement report and summary on what we heard is now available online in the Documents Section of the project website:winnipeg.ca/ChiefPeguisTrail. This Phase 1 Public Engagement documenthas been provided to the project team and will be used to help guide the design process.

 

The CPT Extension West will be approximately 10 kilometres in length and will support economic development, create recreational opportunities, and support the completion of the Strategic Inner Ring Road to reduce traffic on neighborhood streets to make them more accommodating for public transit, walking and cycling.

 

As part of this study, a two-phase public engagement strategy was developed. Phase One of the public engagement strategy occurred from February 2017 to June 2017, and Phase Two is scheduled to commence in the Fall of 2017. During Phase One, study background information was presented to the public and feedback was gathered to learn about potential issues and opportunities, and seek comments on the draft design of the CPT Extension.

 

Phase Two of the CPT Extension West Study is scheduled to start in the Fall of 2017. Please refer to the project webpage (winnipeg.ca/ChiefPeguisTrail) for further details on upcoming public engagement events.
