'Exploring an Active Transportation / Pedestrian Connection at 8th Street' Community Outreach Session - Tuesday, April 25th

April 18, 2017


As per a decision of Brandon City Council, the current 8th Street Bridge structure will be demolished in the summer of 2017, with an active transportation/pedestrian corridor being pursued as a replacement to connect North End residents to Downtown Brandon. As the City of Brandon’s Development Services Division works to confirm the timeline for demolition of Brandon’s decommissioned 8th Street Bridge, work has already begun in terms of identifying the type and scope of an active transportation/pedestrian corridor that may replace it.

To that end, all interested members of the public are invited to attend a community outreach session on Tuesday, April 25th, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the North End Community Centre, 1313 Stickney Avenue.

You are invited to be part of the conversation exploring the different attributes of a new connection. Some of the topics the City is looking for your feedback on include:

-  Length and Width of the Connection
- Accessibility Features
- Amenity Attributes
- Structure Design and Style

Feedback from area property owners, stakeholders and the public at-large will be gathered at this exploration session and will help City of Brandon staff create a vision for the connection as ‘built’ by the community it will serve.
City staff will be on hand to help answer your questions. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
