Curbside Organic Waste Pilot Project Coming to Regina

City Council has approved moving forward with a pilot project prior to implementing
a year-round curbside organic (food and yard) waste collection and processing
service. Organic waste makes up about 50 per cent of residential waste and is a
resource that can be used to make valuable products like nutrient-rich compost and
energy

Prairie View Community Association Chairperson’s Report for 2017/18

My name is Daren Drummond and I am the Chairperson for the CA.  This past year has been very exciting for our association.

First, we successfully ran our first Fall Trade Show in November 2017.  We had over 45 vendors present and the show was attended by over 400 residents.  It saw us partner with McLurg School and Teddy Bear’s Anonymous, the latter we were able to raise $1300 for.  Our vendors, many of whom will be returning for the 2018 show (Saturday, November 17th 10am – 4pm at McLurg School) also gave us exceptional feedback.

Secondly, we have entered the discussion phase with the City of Regina regarding a new fitness park.  The Murphy Park Fitness Trail is being sponsored by one of our own residents and we are pursuing additional funding with the City of Regina.  If we are successful, we will be actively fundraising to see this exciting new addition to our community become a reality.  We will keep you posted via Facebook and our website.

We have gained a new Children’s and Adult Programmer, Megan Wiwcharuk has joined our CA and she has started to offer some new and exciting programs and instructors this fall!  We also have a new sign coordinator, Riley Nadoroznik.  He is also the community member who has offered to donate cash for the new Fitness Trail and he will be fundraising in the community as well.

We have also concluded our partnership with the McLurg School Playground Enhancement group.  McLurg School delivered our Fall newsletter as a fundraiser and we successfully partnered with them on some City of Regina grant applications.  We’ve also joined forces with St. Josaphat School and they will be assisting with our next newsletter delivery.

This year looks very exciting and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead!
