Neighbourhood Planning is coming to an area near you!
The City is embarking on a multi-year project to develop new Neighbourhood Plans for 31 mature areas in Regina. Consultation with residents on where, and how, future growth and development should occur in their neighbourhoods will be a central part of the process.
As we prepare for our population to reach 300,000 people over the next 20 years, growth and development will occur in mature neighbourhoods, as well as new areas. Recently, residents were engaged about the new Zoning Bylaw; this is the next step in determining with residents how growth should occur in their neighbourhood.
The launch of the program will begin with the Al Ritchie Neighbourhood. Community members are invited to join us and share ideas on their neighbourhood:
Thursday, November 21, 2019
5:30 – 8 p.m. Come and Go
Core Ritchie Neighbourhood Centre – gymnasium
Free refreshments and children’s activities
*residents will receive further information in their mailboxes
Conversations will focus on how land is used - such as considering opportunities for types of housing and amenities, and what it could look like – such as identifying unique characteristics in design and structure.
Neighbourhood Plans are an important part of the City’s Official Community Plan (OCP) to ensure we have complete neighbourhoods that are dynamic, unique and evolve over time. Complete neighbourhoods provide easy access to daily life necessities for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, and the concept of complete neighbourhoods is applicable to every area of the city while recognizing the unique aspects that differentiate one neighbourhood from another.
