City of Brandon’s Development Services invites all residents to attend a virtual open house on the Conceptual Design and Streetscape Strategy of Pacific Avenue Project (the Pacific Avenue Project). The virtual open house will be held on Thursday, March 25th, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. via the City’s YouTube channel.
In August 2020, the City of Brandon initiated a project to implement an action item in The Downtown Brandon Secondary Plan to improve the connectivity of Pacific Avenue between 1st Street and 18th Street. Since then, a series of public and stakeholder engagement events have been held by the project team. Stakeholders included City departments, property owners, business owners, and the ward’s Councillor. Engagement events included:
- a pop-up bike lane pilot project with an online interactive map used by participants
- stakeholder workshops
- webinars for residents and stakeholders, and
- online survey for stakeholders to share their experiences.
Feedback from stakeholders, along with the technical evaluation of the proposed conceptual designs, have assisted the City in selecting the preferred design option.
Next Steps in This Project
All members of the public are invited to attend a virtual open house Thursday, March 25th, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. via the City’s YouTube channel. They will learn about the selected conceptual design and streetscape strategy for Pacific Avenue.
