Fairfield Park

Fairfield Park is a growing neighbourhood with a combination of single family homes and many multi-family apartments and condominiums. Many of the multi-family units are home to students attending the University of Manitoba.  We do not have a volunteer residents group for the neighbourhood, but we have many engaged residents that I’ve been working on multiple issues and projects over the past four years.

Accomplishments:

  • Secured land, initial funding & planning underway to construct recreation campus in South West Winnipeg
  • Installing traffic calming on Lee Blvd (Fall 2018)
  • Upgrading seating at playstructure / park on Keslar Blvd. (Fall 2018)
  • Secured Colby Ave drainage upgrades ( from Barnes St to Shore St – 2018 construction season)
  • Multiple traffic studies underway for Keslar Blvd (stop signs, traffic calming & parking regulations)
  • Engaging & community building with area residents & South East Collegiate students & staff

Going Forward

These are key issues and projects in Fairfield Park that I believe we should be focusing on going forward:

  1. Continuing to focus on traffic calming and traffic issues in Fairfield Park. Until Bison Dr. connects to Kenaston Blvd, there will be vehicles using the neighbourhood as a ‘cut through’ to access Super Store, Pembina Hwy, Bairdmore Blvd. & Bison Dr.
  2. Continue to strengthen & build on relationships with area residents & Southeast Collegiate students & staff
  3. Ensuring ongoing proactive ‘Safety & Crime Prevention’ education opportunities
  4. Constructing a new recreation facility in Waverley West Neighbourhood B
