City looking at renaming City Square Plaza after former mayor Pat Fiacco

When Regina City Council meets later this week, one thing they will do is discuss a name change to City Square Plaza in the downtown core.

Council would like to see the area renamed Pat Fiacco Plaza in honour of the man who served as Regina’s mayor from 2000-2012.

Mayor Fougere and eight city councillors submitted the motion saying Fiacco played a key role in creating a downtown neighbourhood plan that resulted in the plaza being built. The motion says “Pat Fiacco displayed a strong commitment to revitalizing Regina’s downtown and inner city by playing an integral role in the creation of the Downtown Neighbourhood Plan, which resulted in the construction of the City Square Plaza and that he “led the planning process behind the Regina Revitalization Initiative, which includes the construction of the new Mosaic Stadium, the redevelopment of the railyards lands north of downtown, and the redevelopment of the former Mosaic Stadium.”
