A step closer to solving Winnipeg’s Missing Middle problem

The latest City of Winnipeg public hearing meeting was a great success for YIMBY Winnipeg, the local urbanist community, and Winnipeg as a whole! We asked the community to Tell the City you support MISSING MIDDLE homes and together we helped pushed the needle towards more housing in Winnipeg.

Winnipeg’s property committee approved the changes to the city’s zoning rules, making it easier to build duplexes and triplexes, among other amendments that align with the Yes in my Backyard Winnipeg mandate.

YIMBY Winnipeg’s own Caleb Mueller was on hand to stand in support of this first step towards a more sustainable city. Watch the following video to learn why this change is so important to Winnipeg’s future.
