DTAH is excited to work with our partners at Praxis Consulting to renew the 11th sequential Wascana Centre Master Plan in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Wascana Centre is located on the traditional lands of Treaty 4 territory, the original lands of the Cree, Ojibwe, Saulteaux, Dakota, Nakota, Lakota, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
Wascana Centre is a unique place in Canada and one of the country’s largest park systems. At 930 hectares, it is home to many uses, including the Provincial Legislative Grounds, the University of Regina, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, recreational facilities, museums, galleries, performing arts centres, and a federally protected waterfowl preserve. DTAH has had the privilege to lead all of the master plans since 1982. This effort, the first for the Saskatchewan Provincial Capital Commission, will include a 100-year vision alongside a focused set of recommendations to inform capital works over the next decade.
We are at the beginning of the process where we listen to the community. To date we have held one-on-one interviews with Indigenous Community Leaders, an Indigenous Sharing Circle, a well-attended public open house, and our first online survey. More opportunities to engage will take place throughout the year. The overall project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2023.
