The City of Regina and Executive Director of Planning and Community Development Diana Hawryluk have mutually agreed to part ways.
“I have been honored to work for the City of Regina for over 10 years with many accomplishments and awards thanks to the great work of my planning and community development team,” said Diana Hawryluk. “I am grateful to all the staff and the collaborative relationships I have had the privilege of being part of over the years. As I move into the next chapter of my career, I feel privileged to have worked with an amazing team that has helped improve the lives of residents in our city.
Starting with the City of Regina in 2011 as Director of Planning, Hawryluk served as Executive Director of Planning and Community Development in 2014 before taking on the role permanently in 2015. While there to the city, she has contributed to many significant projects, including the city’s award-winning official community plan, the negotiation of the first memorandum of understanding with the Regina Airport Authority, the development of Regina’s comprehensive housing strategy Regina and the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan.
“On behalf of the City of Regina, including my senior leadership colleagues, I thank Ms. Hawryluk for her contributions to the organization and to our community,” said Acting City Manager Jim Nicol. “Over the past decade, Ms. Hawryluk has been a strong leader committed to the success of the Planning and Community Development Division. I wish him all the best for the future.
