URegina completes first phase of renewal project, Conexus redevelopment courts controversy

August 7, 2018

The University of Regina has completed the first phase of its College Avenue Campus renewal project. CBC reports that the renewal project has seen a particular improvement in accessibility around campus, which previously posed an issue on campus. The Regina Leader Post writes that Phase Two, a renovation of Darke Hall to be completed in partnership with Conexus Credit Union, has elicited controversy amongst local residents who are opposed to commercial enterprise in Wascana Park. Three councillors have called on city council to officially oppose further development and start a public consultation process on the park’s future. Regina Leader Post(Saskatoon StarPhoenix)  | CBC
