CPCA opposes 33rd Street bridge proposal

On October 15th the CPCA voted unanimously against the proposed 33rd street bridge. We urge the residents of City Park to stay informed on the project and to make their opinion heard by attending the upcoming community consultation meeting on October 21st at Mayfair United Church from 4:30 to 8:30pm and by contacting City Counsellor Darren Hill. The proposed plan will direct traffic from the University bridge to the 33rd street bridge, increasing traffic drastically on 33rd street. 

Fall street sweep

Afternoon everyone, 

Attached is the Fall Street Sweeping program that begins Oct. 19. All 10 neighbourhoods below have been confirmed:

 

1. Nutana

2. City Park

3. Riversdale

4. North Park

5. Caswell Hill

6. Varsity View

7. Westmount

8. King George

9. Holiday Park

10. Buena Vista

 

Some other information to note:

 

1) As with previous sweeps, bright yellow No Parking signs will be out in neighbourhoods at least 36 hours in advance of sweeping. Vehicles that have not been moved by 7 a.m. the morning of the sweep may be ticketed and towed to a nearby street or neighbourhood. Residents can find relocated vehicles using the Where’s My Vehicle app on the City Website, or by calling 306-975-2476.

 

2) Some neighbourhoods are being swept over three days to allow residents to find alternate parking during the sweep.

 

3) School zones will not be swept during the Fall program due to concerns over the safety of children near large machinery. The small amount of leaves in these areas will not affect spring drainage.

 

4) Finally, we are reminding residents that City Bylaws prohibit pushing, blowing or sweeping leaves onto the street. Residents who are found doing this may receive a Bylaw Notice. More importantly, excess leaves may cause the sweepers to delay or skip cleaning a street, which in turn may reduce spring drainage and cause flooding on the affected street. Residents are encouraged to use their Green Carts, or the City’s FREE compost depots, which are open until November 6, to dispose of their yard waste.

 

All of the above information is also being communicated via a press release on Friday, through radio ads and digital advertising.

 

Feel free to share this information with those who may be interested.

SHARE YOUR OPINION ON CURBSIDE SWAPS – ONLINE SURVEY AT SASKATOON.CA

The City of Saskatoon is asking for your opinion on Curbside Swaps to help us better understand the wants, needs and expectations of citizens. A short online survey is open until October 26 to interested residents. Visit Saskatoon.ca/curbsideswap for the survey link. Survey results will help to plan for curbside swaps in 2016.
 

At a Curbside Swap, unwanted items in good condition are placed on the curb and marked as free for anyone to pick-up. Curbside swaps build community and keep reusable items out of our landfill. 

 

For information on hosting a household or neighbourhood Curbside Swap, including an online host manual and downloadable material to help promote your event, visit Saskatoon.ca/curbsideswap.
