Plan to beautify 25th Street entrance to downtown Saskatoon approved

A $3.7 million plan to beautify the 25th Street entrance to Saskatoon’s Central Business Districthas been approved by the city’s planning and operations committee and received strong support from city councillors Tuesday.

The project, which is scheduled to take shape over two years following the extension of 25thStreet to Idylwyld Drive calls for lush landscaping including trees, hedges and flowerbeds, benches, lighting and public art exhibits.

City planner Jeanna Smith told the committee that the goal in planning was to create a distinct identity and a pedestrian friendly corridor for the 25thStreet entrance.
