City of Brandon Updating North Brandon Gateway Secondary Plan

February 12, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon’s Planning and Buildings Department is looking for the public’s input as it works to update the current North Brandon Gateway Secondary Plan to allow for better development flexibility along the northern edge of Brandon city limits, while maintaining the original community vision for this area.

The North Brandon Gateway Secondary Plan, originally adopted by Brandon City Council in early 2014, provides policies for guiding the long-term development and growth of Brandon’s North Hill and, in particular, lands in the area of the Trans-Canada Highway, 18th Street and 1st Street. Now, five years later, City administration is working with a developer interested in developing 21 hectares of this land for residential purposes, and the need to amend the plan has been identified.

Among the more significant changes proposed for the Secondary plan include that of a more simplified road and active transportation network to allow for more flexible development layouts while maintaining key connections through the secondary plan area, as well as the updating of greenspace classifications and general locations to be consistent with and allow for the implementation of the City of Brandon Greenspace Master Plan.

All members of the public community are invited to provide feedback on the proposed mapping and policy changes. A come-and-go public information event will be held at the Riverbank Discovery Centre on Tuesday, February 26th, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Feedback can also be submitted via the City of Brandon website by visiting http://www.brandon.ca/what-is-happening-in-your-neighbourhood/active-projects/1521-north-brandon-gateway-secondary-plan-update.
