Graffiti Management Online Reporting Service

Service Saskatoon launched a new page on Saskatoon.ca today with links to all the online forms. Part of that launch is a brand new form to report graffiti! 

When you are speaking with residents, please let them know that they have two ways to report graffiti:

1. Online – There is an online form on the Saskatoon.ca website. Here where it is located:

a. Services for Residents – Housing & Property – Graffiti Reduction

b. Services for Residents – Online Services – Housing & Property – Report Graffiti

2. Reporting by Phone – Call 306-975-2828

 

After graffiti has been reported the information is sent to the appropriate business unit and prioritized in the system for removal. Obscene, vulgar or hate graffiti is top priority and will be responded to first.

 

Helpful tips for reporting graffiti:

· When reporting online, please include a photo whenever possible

· When reporting graffiti, please provide the best location description possible

· Residents are able to report graffiti on City of Saskatoon property and on other property using the online form or by calling 306-975-2828

Protected Bike Lane Pilot Project

For immediate release: May 16, 2017Protected Bike Lane – Community Feedback

TU17-326

 

Dear Area 4 Community Associations,

The Protected Bike Lane Demonstration Project’s goal is to increase accessibility for all ages and abilities to the downtown area. It wants to achieve this by making the Central Business District a more attractive and vibrant destination to the benefit of the entire city. The project is also a step towards implementation of the City’s Active Transportation Plan, making it easier and more secure to get into and around downtown. Preliminary data indicates protected bike lane use is in line with what other cities such as Calgary and Vancouver have experienced during their demonstration projects. On average, more than 300 people per day are using the separate bike lanes to safely navigate downtown streets while limiting impacts to vehicles and pedestrians.

The City’s Protected Bike Lane Demonstration Project was approved in March of 2015 with a lane opening on 23rd Street later that year. The 4th Avenue lane was opened in May of 2016. In response to preliminary feedback from downtown businesses and people who bike downtown, the City is planning alterations to both lanes in the coming weeks. Also, now that the Protected Bike Lane Demonstration Project is entering its final season, the City would like feedback to determine if its project goals are being met.

To learn more about this initiative or to provide feedback, please visit:

1) Shaping Saskatoon: http://shapingsaskatoon.ca/projects/protected-bike-lanes-1

2) A YouTube video is also available: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iUDkytI-5E&feature=youtu.be&t=1m24s

As leaders and advocates within your communities, I encourage you to take this opportunity to provide comment and/or feedback on this initiative. The discussion on this item is open until June 14th, 2017.

 

Sincerely,

 

Shane Carter
