THE PROGRAM THAT’S SWEEPING THE CITY
With winter just around the corner, it’s that time of the year for the annual two-week fall sweeping program to begin. City street sweepers will be removing leaves and debris from roads in heavily treed neighbourhoods. As you tidy your yard this fall we want to remind you that street sweepers will be coming to your neighbourhood very soon.
The program is expected to start Monday, October 16, and is determined by the weather and the amount of leaves on the ground.
Be on the lookout for the bright yellow No Parking signs that lets you know your street is about to be swept, and ensure your vehicle is off the street to avoid a possible ticket and tow.
Please do not push or blow leaves onto the street. This is illegal and residents may receive a Bylaw Notice if it is determined they pushed their leaves onto the street. Excess leaves can delay the cleaning schedule or even cause the entire street to be skipped.
Place yard clippings in your City of Saskatoon green cart or consider taking them to one of the City’s compost depots for free. Learn how you can compost at home at Saskatoon.ca/homecomposting.
Find your neighbourhood sweeping schedule at saskatoon.ca/sweeping and monitor City of Saskatoon Service Alerts to hear about unexpected changes that can affect your sweeping day.
At the September 2017 City Council meeting, the Varsity View (and Nutana) Residential Parking Permit (RPP) areas were expanded. VVCA carried out a volunteer led survey this spring and summer of the neighbourhood and gathered enough signatures to expand the zones
VVCA’s RPP will see a substantial expansion, where nearly half of the neighbourhood will now be under the program. Those under the RPP will need to go down to City Hall to get their $25 passes, which include one pass and one visitor pass. These must be displayed, and allow residents to park on their own street but they will still be under the 36-hour rule, which states that a vehicle must not remain in the same spot.

With online platforms such as AirBnB and VRBO becoming popular accommodation options for both residents and visitors, the City is reviewing the existing bylaw regulations for short-term accommodations.
Short-term accommodations include all rental arrangements in a residential dwelling where the host receives compensation from a guest that stays less than 30 days. Examples include vacation rentals, bed and breakfasts, and AirBnBs.
Residents are invited to provide their input into the short-term accommodation review process by completing an online survey and/or attending the open house on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Frances Morrison Library.
Short-Term Accommodation Online Survey
Friday, September 29 to Thursday, October 26, 2017

Millions of Canadians engage in thousands of free activities and performances hosted by artists, cultural organizations and municipalities in communities across Canada. From Nunavut to New Brunswick, and from British Columbia to Baffin Island – and all points in between – we share all the inspiration, artistry, creativity and expression that reflects the mosaic of Canadian culture.
As a leading national voice for an active and engaged cultural life, we provide marketing and industry development resources that lead to greater cultural engagement. The Culture Days national awareness campaign culminates in a three-day celebration of the arts starting on the last Friday of September.
What We Do
Every Culture Days weekend features thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities where the public can discover the world of artists, creators, heritage experts, architects, curators, designers and other creative professionals in their communities.
With thousands of activities promoted through culturedays.ca, our digital channels, and national media partnerships, we drive a multi-level national awareness campaign designed to inspire and catalyze greater public arts participation in all Canadian communities.
Culture Days is a collaborative initiative that welcomes public participation. Everyone has a part to play in Culture Days whether you’re already passionate about the arts or interested in discovering something new.
