Wednesday, January 4, 2023 - The PC Team is taking actions to enhance economic and social development by improving and co-ordinating sustainable land use and development between the 18 member municipalities.
Working together in the best interest of our province, that's what people want from their government and we're doing it!
The Manitoba government is accepting nominations for the first provincial board member appointees to the newly established Capital Planning Region.
The Manitoba government established the Capital Planning Region to enhance economic and social development by improving and co-ordinating sustainable land use and development between the 18 member municipalities.
The board of the Capital Planning Region consists of one director from each member municipality. The province will add up to four additional board members to facilitate conversations among municipalities and add provincial perspectives and relevant expertise, the minister said.
The Capital Planning Region board will be responsible for:
adopting a regional plan that is set in by-laws;
leading the development of regional responses to the planning issues of its member municipalities; and
identifying and promoting opportunities for the regional member municipalities to co-operate in the cost-effective development of infrastructure and the provision of services on a regional basis.
The new board will also ensure the organization complies with applicable legislation, regulations and provincial policies as well as transition related functions from the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region organization.
Directors will serve a three-year term, after which they may be re-appointed and continue to hold office until a successor is appointed.
The deadline for applications is Feb. 1. For more information about eligibility or to apply, visit https://jobsearch.gov.mb.ca/generateBulletin.action?ID=96833.
