The City of Winnipeg’s Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies has won a national award for planning excellence from the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) in the Sustainable Mobility, Transportation, and Infrastructure Category.  In making the announcement, CIP stated:

“Winnipeg’s Pedestrian and Cycling Strategy does an excellent job of linking existing transportation plans, area plans, and challenges facing a ‘winter city’ with sustainable mobility policies.”

The Canadian Institute of Planners recognizes planning projects for their excellence, innovation, impact on the profession, implementation potential and overall presentation.   The award will be presented in July, 2016 at CIP’s Annual Conference in Quebec City, as detailed in the press release.

Approved by Council in July 2015, the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies is a long-term framework for active modes of transportation in Winnipeg over the next 20 years. The Strategies are intended to encourage walking and cycling as attractive, convenient and accessible transportation choices for people of all ages and abilities in Winnipeg. Following consultation in 2013 with more than 3,000 Winnipeggers, the Strategies assist in the prioritization of active transportation infrastructure projects city-wide.
