It’s Poverty Awareness Week!!
In 1995, the United Nations General Assembly named October 17 as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
At the request of The SAPC/PAAH - The City of Saskatoon has declared October 13 to October 17, 2014 as the Ninth Annual Poverty Awareness Week.
Poverty Awareness Week promotes awareness of not only the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty but stands to remind people that sustained and concerted effort all year long is vital to entirely eliminating the iron grip of poverty - we know a truly prosperous Saskatoon includes everyone - without fail or exception - no matter who or what.
A special note: Poverty Awareness Week organisers welcome the contributions and support of Marcel Petit, Honorary Chair Person for Poverty Awareness Week, 2014.
Lakeview Park Update from the city:
Our expected completion date for the installation of the sanitary sewer storage facility is November 15, 2014. This includes installation of all of the pipes in the park and roadway, completion of the sidewalk and pavement along Whiteshore Crescent, and installing the tanks in the center of the park. We are approximately one month behind schedule due to delays on a separate project before heading over to this one and delays during the pipe installation along Whiteshore Crescent. Once our work here is complete the park will be filled in and remain untouched over the winter. Next spring the grass in the park will be re-established and a new irrigation system installed.
THREE NEW ENGAGEMENT EXERCISES ON NEW.SASKATOON.CA
For Immediate Release: September 15, 2014
The City of Saskatoon’s (City) Website Project Steering Committee is pleased to announce the launch of three new engagement exercises in September. These exercises focus on understanding what residents want to be able to do on the new website homepage and how they’d like it to look.
“Public involvement is key to a successful redesign of Saskatoon.ca,” says Project Manager Rob Gilhuly. “The website project is at a vital point in its development. Residents now have the opportunity to shape decisions around the site’s design and functionality.”
“A new poll will help gauge citizen preference between two different design approaches. We also want to test different homepage layouts to see if they help users in task completion,” Gilhuly says. “The City encourages all residents to visit the project engagement site, new.saskatoon.ca to get involved.”
For more information on the website project, or to sign to become a volunteer tester, please visit new.saskatoon.ca.
