Report Body

The Administration is providing the following information in response to Enquiry (EN20-1), Renewable Regina, filed at the City Council meeting on April 29, 2020.


Further to The Procedure Bylaw, Bylaw No 9004, I would like to request that the following enquiry to Regina City Administration be tabled at the April 29, 2020 meeting of Regina City Council and that the answers appear on the May 27, 2020 City Council meeting agenda:


1.      In relation to item MN18-11 committing the City to becoming 100% renewable by 2050 and in addition to information provided by the Administration in item PPC19-4, will Administration be crafting a framework that covers the municipality as a whole? If so, what is the timeline?


In report PPC19-4, the scope for the Energy and Sustainability Framework was established as the City of Regina as an organization. This means that efforts are focused on the City’s fleet and transportation, facility heating and cooling, and electricity. It also recommended that the return date for MN18-11, MN18-1 and MN18-4 be adjusted to Q3 2020 for delivery of a framework.


2.      If Administration has abandoned its commitment to focusing on the municipality as a whole in relation to the intent of the motion passed on item MN18-11, is an additional Council motion required to again advance this objective?


PPC19-4 was approved at Priorities and Planning Committee and forwarded to the July 29, 2019 meeting of City Council as item CR19-71, where it was unanimously approved by City Council. Administration has been working in accordance to the scope and workplan approved. An adjustment to this approach would be at the direction of City Council.
