Stakeholder Workshop April 2013

During this phase of developing the Official Community Plan (OCP), the City has been using the Community Priorities, developed and approved by Council in 2012, to provide direction for developing goals, associated policies and growth plan options.

On Thursday, April 25, 2013, the City of Regina held a Stakeholder Workshop to seek feedback on two related streams of work:
•    three options for how our city could grow and change
•    the goals that will guide the development of policy

If you were unable to attend the workshop, or have additional thoughts to share, you are invited to review the presentation – Stakeholder Workshop Powerpoint (PDF)

Summary notes from this session are now available Stakeholder session summary (large file 16MB).

Growth Options

The new OCP will guide growth and change as Regina as it moves towards a 300,000 population, which is projected to occur by 2040. Each of the three options uses the 235,000 growth plan in the current OCP as a starting place, and accommodates an additional 65,000 people (45,000 people in new neighbourhoods on the periphery of the city and 20,000 people through infill developments and intensification of existing neighbourhoods, largely along transportation corridors and transit routes.)
