City of Saskatoon Temporary Snow Storage Site

Recently all households in Briarwood should have received notice of a public meeting held October 23 to discuss the City of Saskatoon plans for a temporary snow storage site adjacent to Briarwood. Two Board members of the Briarwood Community Association (BCA) attended the meeting to listen to the City's plans to minimize disruption  to the neighborhood. While a number of our concerns were addressed, BCA will be sending a follow up letter to the City outlining some remaining concerns, mainly regarding heavy truck traffic on 8th Street, noise and light pollution from the site itself, and management of contaminants within the site. For any residents who were not able to attend the meeting, we have included the following documents that were provided at the meeting:

 We will post our letter to the City once completed as well as any response received from them.
