This Week at City Hall

Monday, May 4
Regina Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee (12:15 pm): Considering proposed ground-floor alterations to the historic Leader Building (1853 Hamilton). This is all part of the rehabilitation and repurposing process currently underway. While the proposal isn’t for an exact recreation of the building’s original glory, it looks like a dramatic improvement over the wretched “restoration” work done in 1968. And say what you will, things could be worse. At least they’re not levelling the Leader Building to make way for more surface parking, nor are they going the way of Moose Jaw and getting heritage designations removed from buildings so they can be razed and replaced with a themed mall structure.

Regina Appeal Board (5:30 pm)

Tuesday, May 5
Finance and Administration Committee (12:15 pm): Considering a maintenance and support contract for the city’s disk-based backup system.

Wednesday May 6
Executive Committee Meeting (11:45 pm): Considering a request from the RSO for $42,500 in municipal funding for the “Symphony Under the Sky” community outreach preformace. This would top up $65,500 in sponsorship the symphony has already secured. Also on the table are the administration’s recommendations for Special Event Funding. Highlights from this include $16,000 for an “I Heart Regina” film to be made in cooperation with the Filmpool Cooperative, $5,000 for the JazzFest, $5,000 for the Mayor’s Arts and Business Awards, $16,200 for the Regina Multicultural Council to provide transit services to Mosaic 2009, and only $12,500 for the RSO’s “Symphony Under the Sky.” Also considering the appointment of Jocelyn Bischoff to the Emergency Measures Coordinator position, an extension to seasonal taxicab licenses, the Harbor Landing Servicing Agreements, and a change to the Official Community Plan around development levies.
Paratransit Advisory Board (5:30 pm)
