We need all the peoplepower we can get, but we especially need pickup trucks and utility trailers. We expect to remove several dozen tonnes of garbage from our streets and alleys. Wear your oldest clothes and bring gloves, a rake, and a water bottle (and a truck, if you can).
Released in 2014, The Junction Improvement Strategy is an important piece of how the City sees redevelopment planning in Riversdale and Pleasant Hill.
From the City website:
The Junction is located at the cross section of three Saskatoon neighbourhoods, Pleasant Hill, Riversdale, and West Industrial, separated by the CP Rail line. It’s proximity to larger redevelopment projects such as the Pleasant Hill Village, Monarch Yards, Station 20 West, and increased interest by the private sector for redevelopment is triggering the need for a comprehensive concept plan for the area.
