WSP was hired by Manitoba Housing to conduct a secondary and subdivision plan for a piece of land located east of UCN. Manitoba Housing has received interest from a local developer to build a 24 room housing unit and workers at WSP conducted an open house at UCN last Wednesday to give residents information about the secondary and subdivision plan and to allow them to bring up any concerns that they have.
Some of the concerns brought up at the presentation were the ongoing issues with the town’s sewage lagoon as well as issues with walkways between streets. Scott Rosin a Landscape Architect from WSP said that that another concern brought up at the presentation was that there are safety issues with walkways between streets, this is an issue that WSP will identify in their secondary plan and figure out how to overcome this issue.
The next step for WSP is to take the feedback they received and finalize their secondary plan which is expected to be submitted in early 2018. If you have any concerns about this project here is a link to a survey.
