Ward Boundary Review Underway
Early planning for the 2020 municipal/school boards’ elections to be held in fall 2020 is already underway. One of the first steps is to review the boundaries of the ten current wards to ensure they all have equal population numbers, according to The Cities Act.
 
Changing four ward boundaries (Wards 5, 7, 8 and 10) to ensure all ten wards comply with the legislated population range could also affect the boundaries of other wards. The Community Association you belong to, or the City Councillor you've had to-date could change, we know this is important to residents.

Climate Change

Share your ideas on climate action in Saskatoon!

The following information was gathered from the City of Saskatoon's Low Emissions Community Plan page:

The City of Saskatoon (City) is currently creating a climate action plan that will identify how we, as a community, can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and respond to the local causes and effects of climate change. The plan will guide our actions and investments as a City, as well as outline ways the City can support community initiatives.

Ward 8 Community Associations

Community associations are non-profit organizations made up of volunteers from your neighbourhood. In Ward 8, we have five active Community Associations. Community Associations enhance the quality of life of the people within the neighbourhood by:

  • Planning and organizing affordable sport, culture and recreational programs in the fall, winter and spring
  • Creating a community newsletter
  • Operating the community rink
  • Organizing community events, such as neighbourhood clean-ups, BBQs and special days in the park

There are many ways to get involved, ranging from volunteering to participating in events. Find out more information about Community Associations on the City website or read on for links to each Community Association.

City of Saskatoon Transit Plan Engagement Starts Now

*News Release* At its November 20, 2017 meeting, Saskatoon City Council approved the Preferred Configuration for a re-envisioned transit system based around Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). The report brought forward by Administration presents recommendations for an appropriately-sized future Bus Rapid Transit system that will support the City’s anticipated growth.

This approval provides direction to HDR to move forward in developing a Functional Plan that will further refine the scale and cost of the new Bus Rapid Transit System, and anticipated changes to existing transit services.

30 Day Waste Challenge

"Did you know 58% of residential waste, and 40% of multi-unit garbage, is made up of food and yard waste? The lack of oxygen in our landfill means organics break down slowly and they produce methane, which is a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide."

Our home participates in quite a few types of composting. Our compost story for #yxetalkstrash this week includes grasscycling, vermicompost, green bin and backyard composting.
