Street Sweeping Exhibition Neighbourhood

Avenues: Monday, Oct 23
Streets: Thursday, Oct 26
** Only select streets will be swept during the Fall Sweeping Program. Streets and avenues between Herman Avenue and Lorne Avenue will not be swept. **
Be on the lookout for the bright yellow No Parking signs that let 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.  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.

Queen Elizabeth/Exhibition Neighbourhood Traffic Review
The presentation, at the Oct. 5 Follow-up Meeting, outlined proposed changes, including a map, to crosswalks, sidewalks, traffic patterns and signage.  All the details of the Traffic Review process are available on the City’s web site.  The results of the Follow-up Meeting will be posted there shortly.
Please, join the discussion of the traffic issues that affect you and your neighbourhood.


REDUCE YOUR SPEED IN SCHOOL ZONES!
All it takes to reduce your speed in a school zone is an additional 12 seconds of travel time. 12 seconds—the difference could save a life! As a motorist, you have a responsibility to obey posted limits and drive in a safe and courteous manner.

The maximum speed limit in a school zone is 30 km/h and is designed to give motorists and pedestrians more time to react in an emergency. Following this rule within a school zone can help you avoid a tragedy. Speed fines in a school zone start at $210.00 and can be in excess of $500.00, with licence suspension, vehicle impoundment and an SGI penalty of three demerit points.


Block Parties are a great way to build social connections, meet your neighbours, know and improve your community. Ask us how QEXCA can help.

Bike Registry
The Saskatoon Police are promoting an online bike registry to prevent the theft of bikes in Saskatoon.  There is preventative information and the steps you can go through to register your bike.

Graffiti Reduction
Spring can often mean that it is graffiti season. Rinks are often a target for Graffiti. If you see graffiti, please, follow these steps:
Record It - Take a picture of the graffiti vandalism as soon as it is identified.
Report It - Report all incidents of damage to your property by calling Saskatoon Police Service at 975-8300.
Remove It - Remove graffiti from your property as quickly as possible. The faster and more frequently graffiti is cleaned up, the less it reappears.
To report graffiti vandalism on property other than your own call 975-2828.
