NOTICE OF APPEAL – 421 Edgewood St.
Appeals Committee – Thursday, July 7th 2016 at 9am Council Building, 510 Main Street.
The developer is appealing the Board of Adjustment decision to deny a proposed 6plex on a corner double lot on Edgewood St.
If you were there for the Board of Adjustment hearing it is Critical you attend this hearing.
Why is this a concern?
– This is on a portion of Edgewood that dead ends at the river/walking bridge.
– It is on the corner of Youville which is not a major throughfare
– Only 6 other homes are on this side of the street.
– It proposes to double the density of that entire section of the street with one development. Thereby drastically changing the character of that section of the street.

Photos from our June 22nd Community Meeting

One big announcement from Matt Allard at our meeting was $200,000 in funding for the Park. Feedback from the community was very positive.

In addition to concerns we mentioned in our presentation, which included;
– Improvements and maintenance of parks
– Industrial hazards, and risk related to rail
– Rail rationalization, and dangerous cargo through the city
– Train derailments that have happened
– Maintenance of infrastructure roads and sidewalks
– Bus Rapid Transit, southeast corridor
– Marion Widening and its negative impact on the community
– Local Businesses and Walkability
– Infill development – impact on the community while not addressing affordable housing.

Additional concerns that were raised;
– Archwood School and the speed limit on Archibald, there is significant concern from Parents and the School to reduce the speed to 30. Or at the minimum have it reduced like Provencher to 50.
– Additional Industrial concerns that have been raised to our attention.

Thank you to Matt Allard and Greg Selinger for participating in this meeting and to everyone that attended to show their support and express their concerns. Thank you to everyone that made a donation to assist us in continuing to raise awareness of the issues in our area.

It’s not over! Talk about changes to Marion & Archibald have started up again!


In spring of 2015, the city of Winnipeg planned to put a freeway at the corner of Marion & Archibald, taking out part of Happyland and about 80 mature trees & threatening the expropriation of 140 homes & businesses as well as adding sound barrier walls to most streets.  We joined forces and formed SSBRA to stop the project.

South St. Boniface Residents Association (SSBRA)

On parle toujours des changements à la rue Marion & à la rue Archibald!


Depuis le printemps de 2015, la ville de Winnipeg avait l’intention de placer un échangeur au coin de Marion & Archibald. Afin d’accomplir ceci, on devait nous enlever une partie du parc Happyland, environ 80 arbres centenaires, démolir plus que 140 propriétés et commerces, ainsi qu’ajouter des murs-barrières sonores au bout de la majorité des rues.  Les résidents ont uni leurs forces pour former le SSBRA en vue d’arrêter le projet.


Nos objectifs sont de:

  • Promouvoir la qualité de vie résidentielle et économique à l’intérieur et autour du quartier de St Boniface sud
  • Fournir des informations pertinentes au développement de notre communauté
  • Promouvoir un sens de communauté le quartier de St. Boniface Sud
  • Fournir une voix unie pour les résidents du quartier de St Boniface Sud
