 The Regina Airport Authority (RAA) Fire Department and Regina Fire and Protective Services will be conducting controlled fire training (weather permitting) on Friday, October 2 from approximately 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

This training may result in large plumes of smoke near the airport.

City council voted on Wednesday to allow a parking lot to operate on the former Capital Pointe site.

Council voted 8-3 to allow the parking lot, which will operate for one year. The owners will have to go back to city council if they want an extension.

The lot is expected to feature 87 surface parking stalls, and eight stalls for motorcycle parking and bicycle parking.

It would be gated and drivers would be able to access it by using the north alley. Drivers may also be allowed to access the lot on Albert Street, as long as the applicant installs a median on Albert Street.
