Institute of Urban Studies
On April 18, 1990, a one-day Workshop was organized by the Institute of Urban Studies to discuss issues and matters related to Plan Winnipeg's Urban Limit Line. The Workshop was sponsored by the Manitoba Department of Urban Affairs and the Manitoba Home Builders' Association. The Institute of Urban Studies considered the Workshop to be timely for two reasons: i. Ever since the institution of the Urban Limit Line, it has been a contentious issue among the various actors involved (City officials, the Government of Manitoba, surrounding rural municipalities, and the housing and urban development industry). ii. The City of Winnipeg has initiated a review of Plan Winnipeg. Since the Urban Limit Line is considered to be an important part of Plan Winnipeg, it would be useful to assess the issues identified, so that those involved in drawing up a new Plan Winnipeg could use the insights from the Workshop in formulating the new Plan.
