The Kinsmen Park Archway Sign located at the intersection of Kinsmen Avenue and 25th Street will undergo upgrades.  The Archway Sign was listed in the Kinsmen Park Master Plan as an item that should be assessed with the intent of preserving and restoring the landmark, which has been part of the park since the 1950s.  

Within the Archway Sign upgrade project, the sign will be removed from its foundation, and taken off site to be sand-blasted and re-painted.  The masonry piers and support structure will be replaced and the sign will be re-installed.

There were fewer complaints about fire pits following last year’s bylaw change, a City report says.

“Overall, the past year has gone as expected with the rate of complaints dropping off slightly; we’re effectively using the tools available to us for enforcement action,” says Fire Chief Morgan Hackl. “Because of the increased enforcement, we have had a reduction in the number of repeated complaints to the same locations.”

The Standing Policy Committee on Planning, Development and Community Services will consider the report at its regular meeting Monday, May 13.

City Council is investing over $61 million this year for rehabilitation, maintenance and operations to make more of Saskatoon’s streets, bridges and sidewalks, smoother, safer and longer-lasting.

“That’s more roads repaved, sidewalks rebuilt, streets swept, and snow and ice cleared,” says Angela Gardiner, General Manager of Transportation and Construction.

“Over the past five years, we’ve made building better roads our top priority. The goal is to rehabilitate Saskatoon’s roads and continue to maintain them appropriately so they last.”
