The City of Regina is looking for input on plans to build a Sobey’s liquor store in the Cathedral neighbourhood.

The proposed liquor store would be built on the mostly vacant lot at the corner of 13th Avenue and Retallack Street. However, a nearby property at 2824 13th Ave. would be demolished to make way for the new build.

The property is currently zoned as a mixed, low-rise, so commercial and residential properties can be developed in the area.

Comments on the proposed development can be submitted through the city’s website, and are due on Jan. 23, 2020. These comments will be forwarded onto the city’s planning commission, who will draft a recommendation for a future city council meeting.
