Pint-Sized Changes for Craft Brewing

Robert Kostiuk, MCIP, RPP, City of Winnipeg Urban Planning 

Recent changes to the Winnipeg Zoning By-law now provide greater flexibility to establish craft-breweries, distilleries or wineries throughout the City. This presentation will review how/why the zoning     changes were implemented and what the changes mean for those looking to establish their own craft brewery in Winnipeg.

Robert Kostiuk, MCIP, RPP has been with the City of Winnipeg Urban Planning Division since 2009. He has worked as a district planner and currently works within the Plan Implementation Branch on long range planning projects. Prior to joining the City of Winnipeg, Robert was a planner at HTFC Planning & Design.

Zoning for Cannabis

Kari Schulz, Province of Manitoba, Community & Planning Office

The Department of Municipal Relations has prepared a resource guide for Manitoba municipalities outlining zoning options for retail cannabis stores. Today's presentation will outline key criteria municipalities should consider prior to amending their zoning by-laws.

Kari Schulz has worked for over 10 years in land use planning.  After working in the City of Mississauga planning department, Kari returned to Winnipeg in 2005 to obtain her Masters' degree in City Planning at the University of Manitoba.  In 2008 she began working at the Steinbach regional planning office reviewing development plans, zoning by-laws and subdivision applications. In 2011 she transferred to the Community and Planning Office in Winnipeg and regularly provides land use planning support to the regional offices.
