LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD: REGINA NEEDS A VIBRANT DOWNTOWN

Posted by: Regina Chamber Admin - March 16, 2023

As a business leader in our community, you have the opportunity to make a difference and play a part in shaping and revitalizing Regina’s downtown.

A multi-purpose entertainment complex located in Regina’s downtown would be a catalyst for economic growth and generate profound and lasting future benefits for our community.

This type of long-term investment is necessary to ensure Regina remains a vibrant city that attracts and retains residents.

The Catalyst Committee’ s work and strategic recommendations resulted in approval to build a new aquatic centre.  This is a very exciting time for Regina and it is important that we not lose momentum.

A new multi-purpose entertainment complex presents an opportunity to bring new investment to our city, while providing our citizens with the assets and quality of life expected by a Capital City.

I urge you to be heard and encourage your city councillor to consider this vision for growth and vote for the opportunity to create a vibrant and energetic downtown.

There are three ways to have your voice heard endorsing the Catalyst Committee recommendations and multi-purpose entertainment complex:

  • Speak at City Council on Wednesday, March 22
  • Send a note to your City Councillor
  • Participate in the Be Heard survey

Speak at City Council on Wednesday, March 22

Citizens who want to address City Council may attend the meeting via teleconference or in person.

To attend, you must register with the Office of the City Clerk by email at clerks@regina.ca or call 306-777-7262, no later than 12:00 p.m. on Monday, March 20, 2023.

When registering you must also include a copy of your five-minute presentation.

If attending by teleconference, you must also provide the telephone number you will be using to call into the meeting with, when registering. You will receive meeting details and instructions after you have confirmed your attendance for the meeting.

Call and write to your Councillor

City councillors need to hear your perspective and thoughts before they make their decision. This is your chance to ensure that city councillors understand there is support a multi-purpose event centre.

Call or send an email to clerks@regina.ca

If you send an email, please say the attached letter is about the Catalyst Committee Report and ask for your letter to be distributed to all members of city council.
