Stakeholder Workshop May 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, May 22, 2013, the City of Regina held a Stakeholder Workshop to seek feedback on the recommended option for how our city will grow and change.

If you were unable to attend the workshop, you are invited to review the presentation – Stakeholder Working Session #3 (PDF).

Summary notes from this session will be available soon. Please check back.

 

Draft Recommended Growth Option

Deisgn Regina, the new Official Community Plan (OCP), will direct growth and change for an increasing population. The recommended growth option uses the 235,000 growth plan in the current OCP as a starting place, and accommodates an additional 65,000 people in new neighbourhoods as well as infill developments and intensification in existing neighbourhoods along transportation corridors and transit routes. This is planned as a first phase of growth within a larger 500,000 population context. This broader perspective is important to sustain our growing economy while balancing social and environmental goals.
