Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign starts Monday!!! Family Service Regina, The United Way Regina, and Canadian Mental Health Association Regina are this years recipients!
Plans to turn the city’s Capital Pointe site into a parking lot were halted on Wednesday following a vote from the Regina planning commission.
The commission voted 8-2 to pause the parking lot plan, agreeing that more time is needed before a decision is made.
A Regina committee has recommended the city open two new off-leash dog parks, complete with designated small dogs areas.
The city's community and protective services committee met on Wednesday morning. A report detailing the two new off-leash dog parks were passed unanimously. It will now go to city council on Sept. 30 for final approval.
The committee recommended that a new park in Mount Pleasant open on Oct. 31. It would wrap around the existing ball diamond in the Mount Pleasant Sports Park at 750 N Winnipeg St.
The other off-leash dog park is planned for the former Regent Par-3 golf course site in the city' northwest. It is expected to open in September 2021, depending on construction time.
