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.

Ward 8 Update
Building Better Roads Program

In addition to regular road maintenance, the Building Better Roads program is aiming to improve another 206 lane kilometres of roadway and replace more than 20 kilometers of sidewalk during the 2018 construction season. Since the establishment of a dedicated road levy in 2014, 876 lane kilometers of roadway have been improved and 36 kilometers of sidewalk have been replaced under the program.

When the 2018 construction season is complete, the Building Better Roads program will have rehabilitated 1,085 lane kilometres of roadway. That’s roughly the one-way distance from City Hall to Salmon Arm, BC. The 56 kilometers of sidewalk replaced would create a path the distance from City Hall to Borden.

Ward 8 Update
Home Flood Protection Program

Every home has some risk for flooding during spring snow melt and rain storms. The City of Saskatoon and SGI CANADA are sponsoring a national pilot program to help Saskatoon homeowners understand their flood risk and take measures to protect their property from flooding.

Saskatoon homeowners can register now for a free or partially-subsidized professional Home Flood Protection Program home assessment – valued at $450 - to help identify their flood risks. The subsidized Home Flood Protection Program inspections will be available to the first 400 Saskatoon homeowners to register in 2018. 

Up to 100 homes that meet the criteria for high flood risk areas are eligible for a free home assessment. Other homeowners are eligible for a subsidized rate of $125. (Homes that qualify for free assessments will have already received a notice from the City of Saskatoon indicating their eligibility.)

Ward 8 Update
Street Sweeping 2018

As soon as the roads are dry in early spring, the City begins a spring sweeping blitz to remove heavier dirt and debris that gathers over the winter. Beginning in April, yellow No Parking signs are posted on scheduled priority streets to notify drivers of upcoming curb-to-curb sweeping through neighbourhoods. In mid-October, street sweeping occurs in select neighbourhoods to reduce the potential for spring flooding.

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.
