Regina’s historic Davin Fountain is another step closer to restoration.
A committee studying the fountain's future says restoration will cost just over $100,000.
The fountain was originally erected in Victoria Park in 1909 and survived the 1912 tornado. It was then moved to Rotary Park before falling into disrepair and going into storage about a decade ago.
A report on what can be done will be reviewed by a city hall committee on Jan. 23. It identifies several potential locations for a restored fountain including the university campuses, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum and Rotary Park.
