Winnipeggers invited to provide feedback on draft lot-split guidelines: October 20, 2020

In January 2020, City Council accepted the administrative report that no changes be made to the 1988 gravel lanes and roads policy. I had asked for a report and recommended some changes in 2019.


There is no program through which the City adds gravel to gravel lanes each year. There is no program through which the City pays to pave gravel lanes each year. The very successful 6-year program through which the City split the costs of asphalting lanes with area residents is running out of money. In short - I lost my attempt to change the policy (so did Gord Steeves when he tried).


Given the opposition to improving the lanes, Council surely cannot now justify a lot-splitting program that would quadruple the drivers on streets with gravel lanes.
