URBAN RESERVES
Governance House - McKay Finnigan and Associates were contracted by the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs and Long Plains First Nation to work with Number TEN Architectural Group to finalize an alternative site plan for the development application for an office tower to serve as the AMC's headquaters located in one the City's prime commercial districts.The plan was developed in consultation with neighbouring businesses and was intenteded to respond to main concerns expressed during an earlier submitted development application. It was anticipated that this new plan would form the basis for a new application for lane openings and closings.
As a result of a series of meetings conducted by our firm, most of the businesses consulted through this study indicated that they were looking forward to the development of Governance House. To many, the project was seen as a major investment in the area which would likely result in an increase in the values of surrounding properties.

Kapyong -Following the decommisioning of a Federally owned military barracks site near Winnipeg's Tuxedo neighbourhood, the site known as the "Kapyong Barracks" was identified as lands that could possibly be designated as an "urban reserve" to be jointly owned by the seven First Nation bands that are part of Treaty 1 territory.
A public panel discussion, hosted by the Canadian Mennonite University, occurred in the fall of 2015. CMU invited Long Plain First Nation Chief Dennis Meeches, Andrew Holtman with the Tuxedo Community Association, and Harry Finnigan, principal of MFA, to speak on a panel about what the development possibilities are for the site
