Councillor Farrell on Growth
Solutions to consider from City Hall.
Councillor Druh Farrell‘s latest newsletters address the challenges of our rapid growth. To help us imagine just how fast we are growing, she points out that we are adding roughly the population of Regina to our city every five years.
Councilor Farrell’s December newsletter outlines three potential solutions to our growth challenges, as put forth by The City’s Chief Financial Officer Eric Sawyer:
- Exploring different revenue sources including developer-paid infrastructure
- Maintaining City debt limits, as opposed to increasing them
- Working with industry on a new funding model
Working together, industry and The City are already brainstorming to create new planning and investment solutions that keep us out of debt.
Councilor Farrell will keep us up to date on her website as plans unfold.
