About the Project

City Council is committed to making significant gains on revitalizing Saskatchewan Ave West. We have allocated the resources to properly plan for future infrastructure improvements such as paved parking, curbing and sidewalks and we look forward to working with our Provincial and Federal funding partners to ensure we achieve this major community improvement.

In 2021, Phase One will relocate and renew utility infrastructure to the gravel shoulders along the avenue between 4th Street West and Elm Street.Saskatchewan Ave W Improvement Area

Phase two of this project will be completed between 2022 and 2024 and will involve the rebuilding of Saskatchewan Avenue West including the paved avenue, sidewalks, bike paths, green space, parking spaces and enhanced land drainage.

Phase Two of this project is expected to attract considerable public interest and the City will hold public consultation regarding this project during 2021.

No increase in property taxes is expected as a result of this project.  The City has been planning for this project for many years and has identified operating funds available from maturing debt and existing resources to service debt payments for this project over its term of 15 years
