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

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.
