WINNIPEG — The Government of Manitoba has started accepting board member nominations for the province’s first Capital Planning Region.
“We are looking for Manitobans with a range of skills, experiences and backgrounds to work alongside municipally appointed directors to guide the Capital Planning Region in its first years of operation,” said Municipal Relations Minister Eileen Clarke in a news release.
The Capital Planning Region was established to improve social and economic development by co-ordinating sustainable land use and development between the 18 member municipalities.
The board will consist of one director from each member municipality with the province adding up to four additional board members.
The board will be responsible for adopting a regional plan that is set in bylaws, leading the development of regional responses to planning issues and identifying and promoting opportunities for the regional member municipalities to co-operate on cost-effective development.
“The new board will be a forum for regional collaboration to achieve common goals, while ensuring the unique and distinct character of each community in the region can flourish and grow,” said Clarke.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 1. Applications can be submitted at https://jobsearch.gov.mb.ca/generateBulletin.action?ID=96833.
