There are very few parking spaces for Ward residents and fewer parking spaces for tourists.
What would you do with all the apartments and apartment buildings that are being built, and the small parking lot that houses them?
Peter Koroma: it needs a creative way of thinking.
I will consider looking at the building that used to be a zoo. that motel —
We can create a community parking lot similar to the Hargrave and Ellice parking lots with private sector ownership and community walking.
Parking permit procedures have been implemented in other cities, so as a resident you can apply for a parking permit and you can apply for a certain amount based on the person who lives in your home, the parking permit allows you to park in your front Street.
At some point you are the only one allowed to park in the front street or whatever the process looks like.
This is what I plan to implement.
Jeff Palmer: What I really want to do is provide alternative services such as better bus service, better bike service, safer bike service, and maybe even different options, such as shared parking and Peg City Car Co-
Op, you can enjoy the shared car service here.
. . . . . . Basically, I want to give our city more options for people to move around rather than relying on cars.
Sherri rolstrom: I\'m trying to convince residents right now that I\'m going to be a voice that protects the ward and will consider some basic details like if you have a 24-
You are considering the necessary parking spaces and then have the developers comply with their plans.
Brianna spina: What I will do is make sure [developer\'s]
There are enough parking spaces in the beginning of the plan, so before the plan is implemented, we need to make sure that there are enough parking spaces and hold them accountable.
Michael Thompson: If I were elected as a member of Parliament, I would work with community members and developers to make sure that, when there is a problem with an apartment, apartment or building, among other issues, these problems have also been solved.
Harry Walbert: I will seek input from all relevant stakeholders and try to come up with a solution.
I have no answer for you now.
Before the Winnipeg election, the investigation showed that the crime in Winnipeg really got worse?
Residents say there has been an increase in crime and violence in the region over the past few years.
What will you do to make the community safer?
Peter Koroma: crime is the result of poverty.
We must reduce poverty, eliminate homelessness and increase the presence of police and security personnel near us.
Stephanie Meller: we need to invest in our community through the community watch group, and I think our community center is a good resource.
We have a great community center in the ward.
A lot of them need to work, but if we can work in our community groups and community centers to get everyone together and build this intimacy, as well as sharing information and data at the grass-roots level, our crime rate can begin to decline.
Jeff Palmer: The best solution is always from the community, and I think if we work with service providers and the police to solve the problem, then we should be able to deal with it.
Sherri rolstrom: part of my plan to make our community safer is [related]
Missing and murdered indigenous women and girls]
In terms of commitment to reducing racial and sexualized violence by creating new securityspace drop-
Across the center
Indigenous women and girls were identified.
Brianna spina: I would like to see more cooperation between organizations such as the police department and the security interests group.
We have neighbors on duty, we have neighborhood parents, we have citizens on patrol --
Create models for the community to provide collaborative efforts.
Michael Thompson: I would obviously be actively involved if I were elected [
Community Patrolefforts [and]hands-
At the close of the time, do what I can to use the city resources to provide support.
Harry Walbert: First of all, I\'m not going to cut the budget for the Winnipeg Police Department.
I will provide them with all the resources they need to keep us safe.
I will again work with all stakeholders, including the provincial and federal governments.
Urban myth of temporary lease: How does Osburn Village deal with vacancy?
Businesses around the village of Osburn are leaving and the area is gaining a \"vague\" reputation.
What will you do to bring business back to Gaza?
Peter Koroma: if their clients can\'t even park to do business, there will be no rational businessmen coming here.
So for me parking is a serious issue that the ward should be looking at, not just Osborne --
The same thing happened in Fox.
Stephanie Meller :[The city]
Leave it to our business improvement area with limited budget.
So we do what we can during the season when we have the funds and the rest of the time we are looking for business owners to make sure their storefront is clean.
But I think the city needs to speed up our cleaning work because that\'s why our streets are so dirty.
Jeff Palmer: I think we should start a good conversation with the business community there and understand why they feel there is a problem.
Maybe they don\'t have the tools they need to solve these problems, maybe this is beyond the scope of the business to solve, but before we have these conversations with Osborne\'s business, it\'s hard to say what the problem is, what is the solution.
Sherri rolstrom: I have been considering the appointment of an economic development officer who will be responsible for attracting ongoing investment opportunities that will not only create more good jobs, but also support and facilitate business development.
Brianna spina: I think the first is the security issue.
We need to work with our businesses and our residents.
We need to inform both sides of how they can protect themselves . . . . . . Earn more money in the community --
It enables us to engage more of our youth in this area.
I always believe in the best practices.
We are not working in isolation and we can keep an eye on our other communities, other cities and see what they are doing.
Get input from the owners and get input from the community to patch those inputs.
Harry Walbert: we can offer jobs to some poor and homeless people to keep the village of Osburn clean.
I know panhandling has always been a problem in that regard.
If we provide people with work to keep our city clean and collect garbage, it may help to eliminate the problem.
I think that may be a way for us to revitalize the region.
Portsa Portage and Main introductory knowledge: What you need to know before you vote is, what position do you take on the referendum on Portage Avenue and the main street open to pedestrians?
Peter Koroma: I don\'t object [
Open Portage and Main]
But the way they handle it-
I am not in favor of doing so.
It must be part of this project to unify downtown Winnipeg.
Stephanie Meller: I don\'t believe Winnipeg will benefit as much as it does with opening Portage and Main predictions.
. . . . . . Before we go to open another pedestrian corridor, we need to deal with the problems that are happening in the city center.
Jeff Palmer: the way to build a healthy city center is to get people to walk and ride bikes and make it as easy as possible for people to move from place to place.
As a driver, I don\'t mind if I have to stay in the car for half an extra minute.
Having said that, I understand that my situation here is small and I will respect the decisions made by the people.
Sheri Rawlins, 20
Three years ago, when I moved to Winnipeg from Ottawa
I\'m 43 now and feel like I was a long time ago
I had some frustrating moments when I got my first job in 303 Main St.
I don\'t know how to cross, so I took part in the team opening for reasons mainly due to accessibility and accessibility to the city.
Brianna spina: I\'m open for pedestrians.
I know there are security issues and it is very important to inform and educate every person who is working, living or who may be traveling to that area.
Michael Thompson: I support active transportation to make it easier for people with disabilities to get into our city.
I keep the decision to open it
I would like to look at the plan and budget to enable Portage and Main, and the cost associated with this.
Harry Walbert: I am against opening ports and major traffic to pedestrians.
I think the mayor and the outgoing MP for Rouge fort are poorly managed on the whole issue. Fort East Garry.
