Notice of motion: 1915 Retallack Street – former Victoria Campus School Site

Please be advised that I will submit the following MOTION at the November 28, 2016 meeting of City Council.

Re:  1915 Retallack Street – former Victoria Campus School Site

WHEREAS the site of the former Victoria Campus School at 1915 Retallack is situated in the middle of a residential neighbourhood; and

WHEREAS the current site includes playground equipment and a dirt field and is already being used by the community as a park; and

WHEREAS development of park space on this site has the potential to fulfill various objectives of the Official Community Plan (OCP), specifically the realization of complete neighbourhoods; and

WHEREAS the OCP recognizes that parks and recreation space affects Regina citizens’ quality of life.

THEREFORE be it resolved that the Administration provide a report to the Community and Protective Services Committee in the first quarter of 2017 that examines the feasibility of developing this site into a park and that consideration for a satellite skate park and splash pad is identified in the assessment.

Respectfully submitted,

Andrew Stevens

Councillor Ward 3
