RED RIVER FLOODWAY EXPANSION PROJECT: OPPORTUNITIES CONCEPT
Client: Manitoba Floodway Authority
The consulting firm of HTFC, Landscape Architecture and Planning, together with their diverse team, were retained by the Manitoba Floodway Authority in May 2008 to undertake the development of an Opportunities Concept Plan. The plan’s intent is to illustrate the potential of the floodway to contribute to the recreation, tourism and economic development fabric of Manitoba while creating a functional and sustainable vegetative cover for the floodway lands above the diversion channel.

As part of this project, McKay Finnigan and Associates played a lead role in examining the economic potential of this project from a perspective of existing nearby businesses and potential economic development, particularly in the sector of tourism.
