Community Character (Lakeview and Cathedral)

The heritage and character of the Cathedral and Lakeview neighbourhoods contribute to their social and economic success. We invite property owners and community members to help create a definition for this ‘character’ and design potential regulatory tools to help protect it.

‘Character’ makes an area attractive as a place to live, work and invest. It is the result of many elements: location, landscapes, views, architectural features, and heritage assets. Heritage assets include sites and buildings listed in the City’s Heritage Inventory for their important contribution to sense of place in Regina and overall community value for future generations.

The aim of this project is to develop a set of recommendations to City Council that clarifies heritage and character conservation objectives, rationale and expectations in the Cathedral and Lakeview neighbourhoods.

Engagement opportunities include a series of workshops, online surveys, a Photo Story Project, as well as opportunities to comment on interim project results.

Wallace Insights has been contracted to study regulatory options and lead this public engagement. Input received will also inform the work to update the Cathedral and Lakeview Neighbourhood Plans when that work is undertaken as part of the City’s Neighbourhood Plan Program.
