Planning & Zoning

The Planning and Zoning Department is responsible for City planning and zoning, property and building related bylaws, administration and enforcement of the Manitoba Building Code, Fire Code, and Plumbing Code, as well as the maintenance of all City-owned buildings. At times, this may include contracting out inspection services to other municipalities.


The City continues to attract new commercial and industrial clients, resulting in greater employment opportunities. With this comes the need for additional housing and serviced commercial land. The City relies mainly on area developers to meet this need and works closely with them to ensure orderly and quality provision of livable and desirable neighbourhoods.
