Regina mayor announces formal plan for inner city revitalization project
Regina Mayor Pat Fiacco is revealing a solid plan to try and move forward with a massive inner city revitalization project.
At a meeting on Monday, city council will vote on a three-phase plan that could see work begin on a new stadium as early as next spring.
Half a million dollars would be set aside to fund the first portion of the project. The city will begin formal negotiations with CP Rail to buy the container yards north of downtown right away.
An arms-length company will still be set up to guide the project but that will take time. Until then three full-time staff positions in the city manager's office will be created to start the process immediately.
