Regina City council may have had a busy week dealing with financial matters.
But city hall took some time during the week to present the city’s Municipal Heritage awards to recipients of community heritage conservation projects in Regina.
Projects recognized include the Viterra Building which used to be the Sherwood Department Store, the Addition to St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral Community Centre and the Downtown Regina Cultural Trailway.
Councillor John Findura says tribute was also paid to the restoration of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building Dome.

“The work will show the Saskatchewan Legislature and its dome reconstruction will remain an important landmark in Regina for many years to come,” says Findura.
Regina Mayor Michael Fougere says despite all the political discussion happening at city hall, it is important to recognize historic places which contribute to Regina’s cultural identity.
“There’s been some truly remarkable work done this year on some very prominent buildings,” says Fougere. “So it’s amazing to take the time to see the dedication through all the work done across our city.”
