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.
The City of Steinbach has adopted a Dwelling Safety Standards By-Law. Its purpose is to ensure all Steinbach residents have safe housing. This by-law addresses minimum obligations property owners must provide within their residential dwellings. Minimum safety measures such as a proper egress, smoke detectors, and carbon monoxide alarms are required to be installed in all primary and secondary dwelling units.
