A Vision For The Flats

With the realities of extreme flooding along Brandon’s Assiniboine River Corridor, the City of Brandon is looking to share a vision for this area.

In June 2019, the City met with the community to discuss development options in the floodplain area, also known as “The Flats”. As a result of that discussion, we are proposing a vision for future development in The Flats to balance the desire for development with the need to protect people and property from future flooding events. This vision was shared at a Public Open House event on December 12, 2019, at the Riverbank Discovery Centre.

The next steps of this project include drafting the policies that will guide development in the Flats and presenting this information to city council
