In Person Engagement on Catalyst Projects Wrap Up Online Survey Open Until November 10
Around 1,000 residents participated in a series of eight public information sessions this week for the five recreation and culture facility projects proposed to revitalize Regina.
The engagement will inform the work of the Catalyst Committee, which was established by Regina City Council to explore synergies among the proposed projects and recommendations for location and sequencing. The proposed projects include a multi-purpose events centre (arena), indoor aquatic facility, multi-purpose outdoor baseball event centre, synthetic outdoor field (soccer) and modernization of the central Regina Public Library.
“On behalf of myself and my co-chair, Tim Reid, we would like to thank the residents, stakeholders and project leads for the comprehensive and valued information shared to date. We look forward to learning more as we continue to discuss and evaluate the proposals,” said Councillor Bob Hawkins, co-chair of the Catalyst Committee.
While the in-person meetings are now complete, online engagement continues at Regina.ca/catalyst. Project presentations are available on the site as well as video recordings of each project's first session.
To date, there have been more than 2,200 responses to the community survey. The survey will be open at Regina.ca/catalyst until November 10.
This engagement provides residents the opportunity to provide input on how the proposed catalyst projects can best contribute to revitalizing Regina, activate the greater downtown area and contribute to our city’s economic prosperity.
