Regina city council met virtually twice this week to address a long list of agenda items. Here’s a look at some of the items that were wrapped up after nine hours of deliberations.

New home for the Regina Humane Society

Council approved a rezoning and discretionary use application brought forward by the Regina Humane Society (RHS) which will pave the way for its new home in Harbour Landing. Ten years in the making, the current 50-year-old shelter will be replaced by a modern animal community centre that is meant to celebrate the relationship between humans and animals as well as enable the community to engage more with the RHS, including its education and volunteer programs.

Changes to the sign portion of the zoning bylaw

In an attempt to balance concerns over visual integrity with those of the sign industry, council approved a number of changes to the sign portion of the Regina Zoning Bylaw, which was revamped last summer. The changes were recommended by city administration based on consultation with industry. They include reducing the required lot frontage to 70 metres from 90 metres to allow for a second portable sign, reducing the separation distance between a portable sign and a permanent billboard to 10 metres from 30 metres and adding the former small sign regulations from the old to the new Regina Zoning Bylaw, which administration found helpful in addressing some sign types that other regulations did not clearly cover.
