Public Engagement Planned to Inform Master Plan Review
In 2022, the Provincial Capital Commission (PCC) will begin engaging with the public on the next iteration of Wascana Centre's Master Plan. This engagement will help inform the Master Plan review process.
Public engagement will begin in 2022 and conclude in 2023. These engagement opportunities will help inform the formal review of the Master Plan, and will include topics such as the Centre's five pillars (recreation, culture, environment, education and government), park and facility usage, as well as religious and ceremonial land use within the park.
"Wascana Centre is an incredible asset of our great city," Regina Mayor Sandra Masters said. "We are proud to hold a seat on the PCC Board of Directors and look forward to supporting this engagement. We are all committed to a Wascana Centre that meets the needs of residents today, and for generations to come."
Engagement dates will be shared on the Wascana Centre website as well as social media channels. Information will also be provided in the PCC quarterly newsletter for which residents can sign up on the Wascana Centre or Government House home page.
"As one of the organizations fortunate enough to be located within Wascana Centre, we take our role on the PCC Board very seriously," University of Regina President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Jeff Keshen said. "This public engagement will be crucial in developing a Master Plan that ensures everyone can continue to enjoy and take great pride in what my family and I have quickly learned is one of the many wonderful aspects of the city we now call home."
Wascana Centre's Master Plan is reviewed every seven years, it was last renewed in 2016. The next review will occur in 2030.
"We are responsible for operating and preserving the public assets that are Wascana Centre and Government House, and we aim to do so as stewards of the environment, servants of the people of Saskatchewan, and champions of our collective history," PCC Acting CEO Ryan Whippler said.
