A media release from the City of Brandon says "work began in February 2022, to build a 30-year vision for the city called the Brandon City Plan. The Planning and Buildings Department has since held several community engagement sessions and interacted with over 2,000 residents. Through January to May 2023, we are sharing the summarized findings from these sessions and giving residents the opportunity to view these findings and to confirm the vision.  

There are several ways to participate, including: 

- View summarized findings and provide feedback online at brandon.ca/cityplan by filling out this quick survey 
- View information and provide comments in person at one of the open house events from January to May as listed at brandon.ca/cityplan on the Calendar of Events    
- Run your own engagement session by requesting the Kitchen Table Conversations Toolkit 

If you cannot access information online or are unable to visit any of the locations in person, please contact City of Brandon Community Planner Sonikile Tembo at s.tembo@brandon.ca or 204 729 2523 for other options. 

What's Next? 

The next step in the process involves a thorough review of feedback received and drafting of the Brandon City Plan document. Once drafted, it will be made available for public review in the Fall of 2023. Following the review, final changes will be made, and a formal process, which includes the provincial ministers' approval and councils' adoption, will commence in the Winter of 2024.  

The City of Brandon is excited to see momentum and discussion going on about the future of the city and look forward to hearing from you. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Sonikile Tembo at s.tembo@brandon.ca or 204-729-2523.
