Central Avenue improvements pitched to Saskatoon City Council

As the Sutherland area approaches its 100th birthday the Sutherland Business Improvement District (SBID) is hoping that Saskatoon city councilwill recognize the need for a facelift on Central Avenue and approve funding for the proposed project in its 2010 capital budget.

According to a story in today’s Star Phoenix, the SBID presented a report to council last night and proposed three improvements for the main thoroughfare that separates Sutherland from neighbouring Forest Grove. SBID is recommending a “sound and dust attenuation wall” adjacent to the CP rail line, the design and construction of a “public plaza,” and an active pedestrian crossing at the 110th Street intersection.

Ward 1 councillor Darren Hill stands with the business group hoping to help make Central Avenue “more pedestrian friendly.”

Several business closings in recent years have led to a perception of a deteriorating Central Avenue. SBID and councilor Hill believe that the proposed improvements will revitalize the area.
