As Principal Consultant, PRIME led the planning team for development of the Regional Growth and Servicing Plan for the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region’s first 30-year regional plan.
Plan 2050 is a blueprint for a resilient, sustainable, and globally competitive Winnipeg Metropolitan Region. The plan is built on partnerships, bringing together 18 municipalities to move away from patchwork, short-term planning to regional collaboration for excellence in land use planning and economic development.
Through this role, PRIME led the plan development working collaboratively with WMR staff and established the implementation framework. PRIME coordinated subconsultants providing crucial content for growth and servicing, as well as planning policy support.
Plan 2050 will strengthen the region’s economic competitiveness, facilitate sustainable future growth, create opportunities for more efficient service delivery, and enhance protections against flooding and other severe weather events.
