City’s ‘Parking for Rent’ Regulations

Do You Know the City’s Regulations Around ‘Parking for Rent’?

Through the Varsity View Local Area Plan (LAP) process, residents noted concerns about residential properties in the northeast portion of the neighbourhood renting out off-street parking spaces to non-residents, which they felt unnecessarily increased commuter traffic flow on local streets and contributed to poor aesthetics in the neighbourhood.

Rental of parking to non-residents on residential property for compensation is not permitted as per the City of Saskatoon (City) Zoning Bylaw No. 8770. To ensure that residential property owners are aware of the regulations and bylaws that apply to rental of parking on their properties, information was distributed to the residential properties in the northeast portion of the neighbourhood, as per Varsity View LAP Recommendation 5.5 – ‘Parking for Rent’ Notification.

For more information and to view the Varsity View LAP online, visit saskatoon.ca/lap.

Making a Bylaw Complaint with the City
Residents can make a bylaw complaint to the City’s Bylaw Compliance Section by phone at 306-657-8766, by email at bylaw.compliance@saskatoon.ca, or on the City’s website at saskatoon.ca/webform/report-bylaw-infraction. All complaints received are kept confidential. All concerns are investigated and can take varying lengths of time to resolve due to the enforcement process.

Fall Street Sweeping

RE: Declutter your gutter! Fall street sweeping starts October 15

The annual Fall Street Sweeping program starts Tuesday, October 15. Cleaning up leaves in the fall prevents them from collecting in gutters causing flooding in the spring. 

Only the leafiest streets within the following neighbourhoods will be swept: Buena Vista, Caswell Hill, City Park, Exhibition, Holiday Park, King George, Mayfair, Nutana, Riversdale and Varsity View. 

Check out the area maps at saskatoon.ca/sweepto see which streets are included. Note: the schedule is different this year and there are no neighbourhoods where every road is swept. 

Watch for the yellow No Parking signs and move vehicles off the street by 7 a.m. on your sweeping day. Tickets and towing will occur so we can access the full curb lane. 

How can I prepare?

  1. Clean up leaves that can blow onto the street. Please do not push or blow leaves onto the street.This is illegal and residents may receive a Bylaw Notice. Excess leaves can delay the cleaning schedule or even cause the entire street to be skipped.
  2. 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 more at saskatoon.ca/compost.

Find your area sweeping sweeping schedule at saskatoon.ca/sweep. Stay up to date with the City of Saskatoon Service Alerts for any unexpected changes that may affect the sweeping schedule. 

Proposed Rezoning Come-and-Go

COME-AND-GO INFORMATION SESSION
Proposed Rezoning by Agreement – 301 Clarence Ave N

Applicant: Axbridge Construction Corporation
Date: Thursday, October 17, 2019 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Location: Brunskill School Library – 101 Wiggins Avenue

A come-and-go public information session regarding the proposed rezoning by Agreement of 301 Clarence Avenue North will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019, in the Brunskill School Library.

The site is currently zoned R2 District and provides for residential development in the form of one and two-unit dwellings as well as related community uses. The proposed rezoning by Agreement would provide for a three-storey building with four separate dwelling units in the style of brownstone townhouses as shown in the image below. The development would also provide nine on-site parking spaces. A site plan for the development has been included on the back of this page. A rezoning by Agreement is proposed to ensure that only the specific development proposal put forward by the applicant could be constructed.

Representatives of the City of Saskatoon and the applicants will be available at this come-and-go information session to discuss the proposed development, the review process, and receive comments on the proposal. Site plans, renderings, and elevations will be available for viewing.

RPP Open House

Residential Parking Program Review
Varsity View Open House

The City established the Residential Parking Program (RPP) Bylaw in 1999 in response to parking concerns in residential areas that experience significant on-street parking congestion.
The program designates certain streets as Residential Parking Zones which limit non-resident parking to a short period of time. 

With the rapid growth of the city in recent years, demand for on-street parking has increased.  A comprehensive review of the RPP is required to identify revisions to the bylaw that will better address current needs and pressures.

We invite you to provide your input in the following ways:
Tuesday, June 18, 2019
4 to 8 p.m.
Albert Community Centre, 610 Clarence Ave. S.
Come & Go Format

VV Community Clean Up 2019

VVCA ANNUAL NEIGHBOURHOOD CLEAN UP

WHEN: Saturday June 8, 2019, 8:30am
WHERE: Brunskill School Parking lot (101 Wiggins Avenue)
WHAT: empty out your garage, basement, storage room, or backyard; or shed! Bring your items to the large garbage bins that will be in the Brunskill school parking lot for disposal!


This is the event at which each year the same half dozen committed volunteers donate their Saturday morning to removing trash (think sodden couches), fire hazards (tree and bush clippings piled against wooden garages) and junk (the odd stove or three) from our neighbourhood back alleys. 

You can help in two ways:
1) Bring your own junk to the dumpsters that will be parked at the back of Brunskill school on the morning of June 8th, 8:30 to 11:30 am (please do not use the small school dumpsters – you will get me in trouble) or,
2) join us as a volunteer – just show up at the parking lot behind Brunskill by 9 am. You get an extra donut if you bring your own truck.
