In the 2020 construction season (May – October), an important water main construction project will occur on Clarence Avenue from College Drive to 8th Street East and on Aird Street from Clarence Avenue to Munroe Avenue. A letter was recently sent to those residents adjacent to the work area notifying them about this upcoming project.
The project occurring next construction season on Clarence Avenue and Aird Street is still in the planning stages so information is limited at this time. In the meantime, until more information becomes available we recommend that community members sign up to receive project updates prior to and during this project. To sign up, email the City at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name, address and contact information.
The replacement of older water mains and the lead service lines (lead pipes) that deliver the water services into homes in Saskatoon’s most established neighbourhoods is a priority for the City. In 2017, the City committed to removing all lead pipes by the end 2026.
The water main and lead pipe replacement project scheduled to occur in your neighbourhood next construction season will include the following infrastructure improvements: • Replacement of 780m of water main • Replacement of 48 lead pipe • Restoration of roadways, resulting in smooth, ‘like new’ road surface • Rehabilitation of sidewalks.
Over the next several months, the City will provide opportunities for residents to learn more about this important infrastructure project: • For all residents who have lead pipes, a City representative will be in touch with you over the next couple of weeks to discuss the details and anticipated impacts of this work. • In early 2020, an information session will be held in your neighbourhood where you will have an opportunity to learn more about the project and ask any questions you may have. • Prior to construction beginning, you will receive a construction notice with important information about the project.
Councillor Cynthia Block hopes to see you at the next Coffee with your Councillor, a come ‘n go event, and an opportunity to meet in person to discuss civic issues that matter to you. Sunday, December 8th, 2019 D’Lish by Tish Café 3pm – 4:30pm.

Varsity View Zone Emmanuel Anglican Church 609 Dufferin Avenue Thursday, November 28th 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

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 email@example.com, 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.
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?
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.
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.

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.

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
