The City Has finally got going on connecting the water supply to the clubhouse. They should be done the excavation in two days, (so they say).

So after how long we have been waiting for the bathrooms to be finished the Parks people have told me that it will be completed in September. Just in time to shut it down for winter. Well done City!! Other parks at least get port-o-potties. Oh well what can you do.

Had a wonderful even out at Winnipeg Beach. Ice Cream, a swim and a good walk down the Boardwalk. If you are planning on going please remember that the dog beach area (south of the water tower) is on leash but the water is off leash. Last year fines were being handed out. To many incidents of uncontrolled dogs and owners.

Somebody set off a mess of fireworks in front of the clubhouse. People aren't going to be happy until the whole place goes up in flames! I have contacted the parks department about this. Let's try and get it cleaned up.

Hi Green Space Supporters,

 

OURS-Winnipeg wishes all of you a safe and healthy journey through the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We know and understand the stress this pandemic has caused.

 

One observation that stands out is the significant increase in the number of people visiting parks and natural green spaces.

 

Green Space matters more than ever and is an important element in providing opportunities to relieve stress during this pandemic.

 

OURS-Winnipeg announces a Green Space ALERT regarding a new threat to Winnipeg's green spaces.

 

The Transformative Fund proposal passed in the City of Winnipeg 2020 Budget poses this same threat.

 

Re-purposing up to 30% of municipal golf courses, as proposed by the Transformative Fund, will be the most serious attack on Winnipeg's green spaces since the 2011 sale proposal by Mayor Sam Katz.

 

A Transformative Fund was approved in the 2020 Winnipeg City Budget.

 

$200,000 was approved to hire a consultant and report back to Council in the fall of 2020.

 

The City’s plan for a Transformative Fund includes repurposing of up to 30% of city golf lands. 

 

The Transformative Fund and Repurposing Golf Lands proposal allows for:

  • acquiring funding from the sale of golf lands
  • residential development on golf lands
  • repurposing up to 30% of all golf lands 
  • proceeds of the fund to reduce City’s infrastructure deficit 
  • “reinvestment” of capital assets (golf land) into services and deficit reduction 

Further details are provided in the OURS attachment to this email.

Hi all. I had a report that a couple of dogs took sick in the Big Field at the park. The person was concerned about the spraying going on and whether it was effecting the dogs. I have had no other reports of any sickness happening. Please be aware that the spraying is going on this week and stay away if you are worried.
