|CentrePort Canada Zoning and Design Standards|
We are asking the community to get involved in a number of ways. The consultant team ofPlaceMakers and MMM Group invite you to join us for an open house on November 20 at 6:30 pm (location to be announced here soon) to discuss the draft By-law.
This follows up on the July design workshop as well as interviews in June with selected entities most closely involved with the first phase of CentrePort Canada. The community helped identify potential opportunities and issues with a zoning framework outline.
During the July open houses, planning officials, the business community, and residents considered ideas and actions to help guide the RM of Rosser and CentrePort towards a future of increased opportunity. We gathered and refined ideas about subdivision design, connectivity, parcel sizes and uses, as well as the ultimate form and function of the area when fully developed.
A key guiding principle for CentrePort development is establishing a streamlined and transparent development approval process. This calls for a modern approach to zoning that emphasizes upfront visioning and consultation processes to develop standards that govern basic building form, placement of structures and related components of the built environment with predictable physical outcomes and performance based criteria rather than overly detailed lists of permitted or conditional uses.
The form-based zoning framework will accommodate immediate development proposals in Rosser and is intended to be transferable to future phases of CentrePort development, in both Rosser and Winnipeg. A Steering Committee with representatives from Rosser, Manitoba Local Government, and Winnipeg’s Planning Department is working with the consultant team to provide ongoing professional and technical input throughout the project.
This collaborative effort aligns with The CentrePort Canada Act, which directs the Province and the affected municipalities to develop a singular and comprehensive planning framework to guide CentrePort development.
