Ren Brandon to share findings from review with council in Aug.

Results of a Renaissance Brandon review will be delayed due to city council’s attention to the Assiniboine River flood.

Downtown development specialist Braden Pilling said while work continues on the topic, they now expect to appear before council with recommendations in August.

Pilling says there has been a “tremendous amount” of work done and the extra time has actually been helpful.

“It furthers our discussions with some of the property owners and developers downtown,” he said. “The plan will be much more well-rounded and much more effective with this extra time to really work through every piece of it.”

The extensive review of the downtown development corporation is looking at everything from its mandate to its funding model.

One of the main points under consideration is how to make Renaissance Brandon apolitical and more in line with how Winnipeg’s downtown development corporation, CentreVenture, operates.

A working group, consisting of city councillors and Ren Brandon board members, has met regularly on the topic.

Renaissance Brandon is working to finalize a three-year strategic plan and determine how much funding is needed for the projects they would like to tackle.

“There will be some pretty significant changes and then a few minor tweaks on how we do business,” Ren Brandon chair Steve McMillan previously told the Sun.
