   CAPITAL PLAN - 2005-2008
          Approved
CITY COUNCIL - December 15, 2003
                   APPROVED 2004 CAPITAL BUDGET
                     AND 2005-2008 CAPITAL PLAN

INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
The 2004 Capital Budget/2005-2008 Capital Plan, totals $542,953,000.        The 2004 Capital
Budget, as approved by City Council on December 15, totals $100,913,000.

The focus of the 2004 Capital Budget is on land development, continuing maintenance of the
City’s assets, and expansion and maintenance at the Water and Wastewater Plants.

Land Development
   • Work will continue on the Willowgrove neighbourhood with the servicing of an
      additional 30 lots on Maguire Court, which will be ready for sale in 2004. In addition,
      work will also begin on preparing 45 lots on Greaves Court and 72 lots on Van Impe for
      anticipated sale in 2005 and 2006 respectively. Other work planned for 2004 includes the
      landscaping of the linear park within the first phase of development and the landscaping
      of the two major entrances to the neighbourhood, including decorative fencing, trees,
      shrubs, paving stones, and entrance signs. The City will be spending approximately
      $3,400,000 during this phase of development.

   •   The first phase of development of the Hampton Village neighbourhood will be
       undertaken jointly with Dundee Development Corporation and the City, immediately
       following the approval of the concept plan in early 2004. This new neighbourhood,
       located north of Dundonald and Westview neighbourhoods, will provide a mix of new
       and old neighbourhood concepts similar to Willowgrove. In addition to servicing 45
       City-owned lots and 4 City-owned multi-family parcels, work will also be undertaken to
       install a sanitary sewer lift station and force main, develop dry ponds within the
       neighbourhood, and upgrade the Dundonald dry pond to a wet pond. Additional
       landscaping of the Dundonald pond will proceed in 2004 as part of this project. The City
       will be spending approximately $7,400,000 on this initial phase of the development.

   •   2004 will see an additional 42 lots and one townhouse site being developed within the
       Briarwood neighbourhood on Brookdale Crescent. Development in this area will include
       the installation of wrought iron and masonry fencing along the park and Briarwood Road
       as has been installed in previous phases. 2004 will also see the completion of the final
       section of Briarwood Road, which is the main looping roadway within the
       neighbourhood. Work will begin on servicing an additional 32 lots within the
       Beechwood Crescent area for sale in 2005. The City will be spending approximately
       $2,000,000 for this phase of development.

   •   Servicing of the final phase of development in the Lakewood Suburban Centre will be
       undertaken in 2004. This phase will include additional opportunities for commercial and
       medium to high-density residential development. As well, a lift station will be
       constructed to service this area. A total of approximately $3,700,000 will be spent for
       this phase of development.

APPROVED 2004 CAPITAL BUDGET AND 2005-2008 CAPITAL PLAN                           December 15, 2003

Water and Wastewater Utility
The 2004 Capital Budget and the 2005-2008 Capital Plan include projects totaling $120,100,000
($17,300,000 in 2004) which are driven by regulatory demands from Saskatchewan Environment
and increased demands related to treatment quality, public safety, system capacity, security and
reliability, as identified in a recent report by the Administration. It is recommended that
$76,000,000 be borrowed to support this plan ($9,700,000 resulting from 2004 projects). Water
and Wastewater utility rate increases are being proposed to support the capital debt.

There are two major projects planned for 2004:
    • Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management (SERM) has a regulatory
        requirement that the City, by 2005, construct a sludge recovery and disposal system at
        the Water Treatment Plant to eliminate sludge that is generated in the waterworks pre-
        treatment process that is currently being returned to the river in slurry form. This heavy
        precipitate (predominantly calcium carbonate) settles out on the riverbank. The total
        cost of construction of this facility (including the relocation of electrical towers) is
        estimated to be in excess of $12,000,000, of which $7,100,000 was previously approved.
        The 2004 budget reflects the remainder of the required funding ($4,974,000).
        Construction is planned to begin in the summer of 2004.

    •   The existing single line pipe, which transports sludge from the Wastewater Treatment
        Plant to the bio-solids handling facility is 20 years old and is near its capacity. In
        addition, it is subject to blockages resulting from a build-up of struvite (which is a by-
        product of the biological nutrient removal process). To ensure continued reliability, it is
        planned to construct a new twinned line pipe in 2004. The existing line will be used as a
        backup. Construction costs are estimated at $5,100,000.

Major Roadwork
In addition to land development and construction on behalf of the Water and Wastewater
Utilities, there are three major roadwork projects planned for 2004:
    • Construction will continue on the upgrade of Preston Avenue to a four-lane divided
        roadway. 2004 will be the second year of this two-year project, with construction from
        108th Street to 14th Street totaling $4,650,000. The 2004 work includes the realignment
        of 108th Street to a more southerly location, which will consolidate to a single intersection
        with a new University East Road. The University has agreed to fund the installation of
        new traffic signals at the intersection of Perimeter Road and Preston Avenue as well as
        provide trees in the center median.

   •    Reconstruction of the Circle Drive and 11th Street intersection is planned for 2004 with a
        total cost of $3,500,000. This project includes left turn bays, median construction,
        upgrading existing railway crossings, widening the existing road surfacing on 11th Street
        from Avenue W to Circle Drive and the addition of two southbound lanes on Circle Drive
        from Clancy Drive to 11th Street. The intersection is also relocated slightly to the west.
        This project will accommodate the demand at this intersection for the immediate future.
        This project will be subject to approval of a funding request under the Canada
        Saskatchewan Infrastructure Program for $1,700,000.

APPROVED 2004 CAPITAL BUDGET AND 2005-2008 CAPITAL PLAN                           December 15, 2003

   •   A grade separation will be constructed at the CNR Watrous Subdivision railway crossing
       at Clarence Avenue South. This project is in partnership with Canadian National
       Railway (CNR), with a total cost of $2,817,000. As identified in the partnership
       agreement approved by City Council in September, CNR will contribute $1,925,000.

LONG TERM CAPITAL ISSUES
In March of 2002, City Council received an update to the Ten Year Capital Funding Discussion
Paper (covering 2003-2012). This report identified that, while annual contributions from the
operating budget have increased by $7,000,000 since the initial ten-year report (in 1998), annual
capital requirements also increased (by $3,600,000). The 2002 report concluded that the annual
non-utility shortfall was $17,700,000.

In addition, the ten-year discussion paper noted a major shortfall ($13,540,000) in the annual
capital base for water, wastewater and storm sewer systems. While the Administration has
begun to address this shortfall, the Water and Wastewater Utilities, as noted earlier in this report,
are faced with substantial new capital demands driven by issues related to treatment quality,
public safety, system capacity, security and reliability, resulting in a capital plan totaling $120
million, funded through a combination of reserves, senior government grants and borrowing.

The Discussion Paper recommended the continuation of four practices currently followed by the
Administration: allocation of 1/3 of annual assessment growth to the annual capital base;
redirection of matured debt charges to the annual capital base; allocation of additional mill rate
contributions to the annual capital base; and the allocation of additional ad-hoc contributions to
the annual capital program. The 2004 Capital Budget has been prepared assuming only the
approval of the assessment growth contribution from the 2004 Operating Budget.

The Discussion Paper also recommended that outstanding capital needs be considered in the
event that there are any new funding initiatives from senior governments. Consistent with both
the funding shortfall in roadways and potential new funding initiatives, an administrative report
has been prepared recommending a link between priority transportation projects and the
dedication of a gas tax revenue to the City of Saskatoon that is currently being discussed at both
senior levels of government.

PLANNING PROCESS
The City of Saskatoon annually develops a five-year Capital Program. This is one of the pieces
of the City’s corporate planning process and flows from the City’s Strategic Plan and Corporate
Business Plans. The Capital Budget document is used to obtain approval of capital expenditures,
which include capital assets and significant one-time projects in excess of $25,000.

The capital budget process consists of the following general timeline:

       Capital Budget
          o August             Budget preparation
          o November           Administrative/Committee Reviews
          o December           Budget Committee Review & City Council Approval

FUNDING SOURCES
Reserves

Annual contributions are made to designated capital reserves based on formulas and provisions
as described in the Capital Reserves Bylaw and City Policy. Table 3 reflects the sufficiency of
these reserves.

Based on ongoing and increasing pressures on the Transit Capital Projects Reserve, an
increase to the annual provision will be requested through the 2004 Operating Budget.
Administration has prepared a report recommending a rate increase to assist in funding operating
and capital pressures and at the same time, maintaining the current ratio of total fare revenue to
total operating costs at 39%. Until such time as the 2004 Transit Operating Budget is approved
by City Council, the following projects would be approved subject to the increased operating
provision:
        P671 Transit Auxiliary Vehicle/Equipment
        P1190 Passenger Data Program

As noted earlier, a utility borrowing plan has been established to assist with projected funding
insufficiencies in both the Waterworks Capital Projects Reserve and the Sewage Treatment
Capital Reserve.

Insufficiencies to the Storm, Surface and Water and Sewer Infrastructure Replacement
Reserves beyond 2005 will be the subject of future reports. Insufficiencies in the Civic Vehicles

and Equipment Disposition and Acquisition Reserve and the Landfill Replacement Reserve
are currently being reviewed by Administration.

The Reserve for Capital Expenditures (RCE) has been established by City Council to provide
funding for discretionary capital projects. 2004 available funding is as follows:

        Projected January 1, 2004 Opening Balance:                             $508,800
        Contributions: Base Mill Rate Contribution                            4,493,500

          Balance available to fund discretionary projects                  $6,369,000


South Downtown Development

Discussions have continued throughout 2003 with respect to the development of the South
Downtown. As there are still uncertainties, projects initially identified within the 2004 Capital
Budget have been removed. These projects include expenditures associated with the Gathercole
Building (asbestos removal and underground duct wiring), design of the A.L. Cole Riverfront,
and removal of the 19th Street subway. It is anticipated that decisions will be made in 2004 that
will require funding. Accordingly, funds available from the Property Realized Reserve in excess
of $24,000,000, that are normally allocated to the Reserve for Capital Expenditures to fund
discretionary projects, have been reserved to provide funding for required South Downtown
projects. Any projects resulting from decisions related to the South Downtown will be the
subject of a further report and a supplemental budget submitted to City Council.


Provincial and Federal Funding Programs

The Canada Saskatchewan Infrastructure Program assisted with funding the Circle/
22nd/Confederation Grade Separation (provided in excess of $6,900,000), phase 1 of the upgrade
to Preston Avenue ($1,500,000), and the upgrade to Warman Road ($2,600,000). The City of
Saskatoon has received additional funding approval under this program for four additional
projects over the years 2004 through 2005, totaling in excess of $6,000,000. These projects
include:
        P653 Upgrade Preston, Phase II (108th St to 14th St)
        P876 Regional Waste Management Facility (approval is subject to an environmental
        assessment)
        P1522 Traffic Sound Attenuation, and
        P1583 Circle Drive Reconstruction – Millar/Northridge

APPROVED 2004 CAPITAL BUDGET AND 2005-2008 CAPITAL PLAN                          December 15, 2003

In addition to these projects, a funding request under this program for Project 2008 Circle Dr/11th
Street Intersection Improvements for $1,700,000 has been submitted under this program.

Saskatchewan Highways and Transportation (SHT) has provided funding for a number of
transportation projects throughout the years. While there are no projects identified in the 2004
Capital Budget that include funding from SHT, discussions are ongoing for future cost sharing
with projects such as the new river crossings (Project 993). A strategy has been developed
jointly with SHT to provide for the planning of the river crossings and associated roadways,
including strategic ties into the future outer perimeter roadway.

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) manage and administer two programs
related to climate change, clean air and other green technologies. These programs provide the
opportunities for grants and/or low-interest loans. The 2004 Capital Budget reflects a grant of
$200,000 and a low-interest loan of $2,303,000 for Project 1154, Sludge Recovery and Disposal
at the Water Treatment Plant.



OPERATING BUDGET IMPACT
Capital projects within this budget will impact future City operating programs. Should all civic
projects be approved, the additional operating costs in 2005 are estimated to be $424,500. These

Project Description
This project involves the construction, capital maintenance of and improvements to off street transit terminals in new and existing
regional areas. Terminals reduce transfer time so that scheduled frequencies are maintained. In addition, pedestrian/vehicle conflicts
and vehicular congestion are reduced.

General Comments
The Sutherland terminal has been deferred until 2007 pending the development of the Suburban Center. A transfer point was created
in the northeast sector with the introduction of new routes and service enhancements in fall of 2003. It is anticipated that this will
sufficiently service transfer needs until 2007.

The South East terminal has been deferred due to the rate of residential development in the southeast area. The south east terminal
will not proceed before the year 2006. The existing terminal at the Circle Center Mall is expected to be sufficient to meet the expected
demand until 2006.

Confederation Terminal will require roadway resurfacing and improvements in 2005.

The Downtown terminal relocation is shown as construction commencing in 2005/2006. The potential exists for federal government
cost sharing for a portion of the project and a funding strategy for the balance of the project cost will be developed.

Project Description
This project involves the extension of the storm and sanitary trunk sewers north, south and east from the Saguenay Dr river crossing to
facilitate approximately 1200 hectares of staged development in the northeast sector in the near future. In the long term, these trunks
will also facilitate approximately 1800 hectares of development in the east sector.

General Comments
Note:
The assumed order of development is Willowgrove, Pederson's Ravine, Springfield, Greenwood, Sunnyridge, Deerwood, Stoneridge
and Ag Canada. Trunks required for any given neighborhood may also be required for subsequent neighborhoods. Changing the order
of development will not necessarily delay a given project.

Project Description
This project involves extending sanitary trunk sewers from the pollution control plant to Idylwyld Drive north of 60th Street and storm
trunk sewers from the river to the same point. These trunks are required to serve new and existing industrial areas in the northern part
of the city.

General Comments
Note: The assumed order of development is Silverwood Industrial south of Waneskewin Road, Silverwood Industrial north of
Waneskewin Road, Marquis Industrial east of Millar Avenue, Marquis Industrial east of Faithfull, Marquis Industrial east of Idylwyld, and
Marquis Industrial north of 71st Street. Trunks required for any given area may also be required for subsequent areas. Changing the
order of the development will not necessarily delay a given project.

Project Description
This project involves the upgrading of Preston Ave from 14th Street to the CPR mainline crossing to a four lane divided roadway
standard.

General Comments
Preston Avenue is a major arterial roadway carrying an average daily traffic volume of 17,000 vehicles. A volume of 10,000 vehicles
per day is used to indicate when a roadway requires four laning. Traffic congestion presently occurs at College Drive, East Road,
108th Street and Perimeter Road intersections. Traffic volumes will continue to increase along Preston Avenue as future developments
occur within the University of Saskatchewan and Innovation Place. The recent construction of the regional retail center at Circle
Drive/Attridge Drive and the realignment of Preston Avenue to connect to the Attridge Drive Interchange continue to contribute to
increased traffic flows on Preston Avenue (Capital Project 1455). The reconstruction of Preston Avenue between Research Drive and
108th Street is now complete. The work planned for 2004 is the continuation of the four laning from 108th Street south of College
Drive, the four lane cross section will transition to meet the existing two lane cross section south of Field House Road. This will include
a realignment of 108th Street to a more southerly location and consolidating to a single intersection with the University's East Road.
This will necessitate the University's existing East Road to be moved north to match. The work in 2004 involves a contribution of
funding from the University ($110,000) to allow the work to proceed as planned. This project has been approved under the Canada
Saskatchewan Infrastructure Program; however, there is an outstanding request to revise the timing and allocation of funding between
this project and Project 1583 Circle Drive Reconstruction-Millar/Northridge.

Project Description
This project involves the design and construction of a north-south arterial roadway from Highway 5 (College Dr) to the future north river
crossing (proposed Perimeter Road). This roadway is the main north-south arterial that will provide access to the University Heights
Suburban area. In the long term, this roadway will form part of the roadway network feeding the proposed Perimeter Road.

General Comments
In 2003 the section between Highway 5 and Attridge Drive was constructed to a 4 lanes status. The 2004 construction is for the initial 2
lanes between Attridge & Nelson Road.

Four laning from Nelson Road to the Perimeter Road section is planned for beyond the year 2008.

The construction in 2003 included a joint project with the Department of Highways to upgrade the intersection of McOrmond and
Highway 5.

General Comments
2004 includes:
         - Hoist #6 replacement                                           $ 90,000
         - Parts Washer replacement                                         40,000

The Vacuum System is used on the fuel line to vacuum out the debris/garbage out of the buses during fueling and servicing. The
system was purchased in 1988. The life expectancy for industrial applications is 15 years. This overhaul will extend the life to 25
years.

The 2005 estimate is for:
        -Overhaul bus Wash                                               $ 50,000

The bus wash system is used to wash the exterior of the buses (approximately 100 duty cycles per day). Overhaul includes - bearings,
cylinders, motors, gearboxes and control units.

The garage sweeper is a parking lot style and can be used for wet or dry floors. The sweeper is used to maintain the interior of our
Transit bus storage area and shops. It was purchased in 1993 and its life expectancy is 10 years.

The 2006 estimate is
        -Tire regroover                                                  $ 25,000
        -Propane forklift                                                  60,000
        -Shop hose reels                                                   35,000

Project Description
The objective of this project is to provide power factor correction to reduce the peak electrical demand of the electrical distribution
system. Reducing the peak demand has the effect of reducing the cost of bulk power purchases. It is proposed to install additional
capacitors, and add automated switching facilities.

General Comments
Capacitor banks are installed on the electrical distribution lines to offset the reactive power effect of transformers, motors, and other
loads that result in poor power factors. The actual quantity of capacitors is determined by system checks during the anticipated
seasonal maximum that yields a summer peak and a winter peak. Switching of capacitors is now considered necessary as power
purchase cost is based on monthly peak demand and energy consumption. An automated capacitor-switching scheme allows better
tracking of capacitors need to actual system demand. Overcompensating in off peak periods results in unnecessary system losses and
unnecessary reactive currents flowing. Remote control or automatic control is suggested to be more cost effective than manual
seasonal switching.

It is proposed in 2004, that an automated capacitor switching facility be put in place prior to anticipated summers peak. Historically, the
summer peak occurs in July coincidental to maximum daily temperature maximum heat soak.

Project Description
This project involves completing the electrical system network vault at 347 2nd Avenue South.

General Comments
In prior years, a development proposal on Block 146, civic address 347 2nd Avenue South, caused the construction of a vault to
provide service to the proposed new building. The development proposed failed with substantial construction having been completed.
However, the vault still requires additional facilities before it will be able to provide electrical service.

General area electrical load growth and other development proposals have occurred. It is intended in 2004, to complete the installation
of the necessary network transformers and ancillary equipment. Upon completion of the construction, this vault will be available to
provide electrical service. The transformers are being provided and installed under project # 1264 Electric Network Transformer
Upgrades. Secondary connection and ancillary equipment are part of this project.

Project Description
This project involves providing meters, metering transformers and accessories for new services and replacing obsolete meters in the
City's electrical franchise area.

General Comments
Meters tend to become less accurate with time, resulting in a loss of revenue. Older style meters must be tested more frequently
according to Industry and Science Canada (Federal Government) standards, resulting in higher maintenance and operating costs.
Some old meters require considerably more time to test and calibrate and replacement parts are often unavailable.

Project Description
This project replaces and/or restores deteriorated insulated underground high voltage cables in residential areas throughout the City
Franchise area. Deterioration to the dielectric strength of the cable insulation occurs mainly from the presence of moisture in and
around the cable. Locations for replacements are determined each year based on the age of the system in an area and general cable
condition.

General Comments
The restoration process involves injecting the underground residential distribution cables with insulation restoration fluid, removing
moisture from within the cable and filling the internal voids to restrict return of moisture. The expected result is to restore the dielectric
strength of the cable insulation. This should greatly extend the service life of a cable and greatly reduce the high cost of replacement.
Cable injection should minimize the disturbance to private property fencing, landscaping, etc. and minimize the interruption of
pedestrian and vehicle traffic interruption compared to long runs of open trenches required for cable replacement. Assessment of this
process will be compared to cable replacement and anticipated restoration of service life.

In instances where restoration is not feasible or cost effective, replacement becomes the viable option. The amount of cable to be
replaced is dependent in part on the results of the inspections done for cable insulation restoration.

Cable injection began in 2001. It is suggested to inject 4.16 kV Underground Residential Distribution on approximately the basis of one
neighbourhood per year. The neighbourhoods of interest are Brevort Park, Nutana Suburban Centre, Eastview, Richmond Heights and
South Meadow Green.

Project Description
This project involves the construction of municipal services on city-owned and privately-owned land.

General Comments
The land (north of Melville Street and west of Clarence Ave.) has been developed to fully service the Electrical Building. Additional
work required includes storm sewer construction to Melville, related street construction, and construction of a storm pond for storm
water runoff. Future funding for Melville Street is dependant on a Trunk Sewer being constructed for Stonebridge and a Servicing
Agreement being entered into with private developers

Project Description
This project involves the staged rehabilitation of the Traffic Bridge to ensure a 5 tonne load rating is maintained over the next 20 years.

General Comments
Consultant studies in 1986 and 1991 led to structural repairs and guardrail upgrade in 1992. The load limit has been reduced from 8 to
5 tonnes until the recommended final stage of rehabilitation can be accomplished. In 1996, the pedestrian walkway was reconstructed,
six new bearings installed, three new expansion joints installed, and new support piles installed at the south approach span. In 2001
the structure was resurfaced. In 2003 structural repairs were made to the railing, walkway and abutments as a result of
recommendations from consultant's studies completed in 2002.

The scope of this project is to extend the life of the existing structure as a vehicular traffic bridge. Closing this bridge would divert the
traffic to other bridges causing congested traffic levels.

The funding requested in 2005 is to enact the 2003 recommendations. A report will be submitted to the Planning and Operations
Committee detailing alternative options.

Prior Budget Approvals                $1,206,000
Prior years' reflects engineering inspections, members and guardrails, partial construction of walk and retaining walls, pier evaluation,
and design and some construction for the rehabilitation of steel structure and decks.

Project Description
This project involves the planned recapping (new asphalt base and acrylic protective coating) or decommissioning of various tennis
courts throughout the city.

General Comments
The Leisure Services Branch of the Community Services Department, in consultation with the former Asset Management Department,
completed a review of tennis court participation to determine an appropriate inventory of the number of courts required to meet current
and future demand. Analysis indicated an excess of tennis courts in Saskatoon.

The Administration developed a plan outlining a redevelopment program for those courts that should be retained along with
recommendations identifying those courts that should be decommissioned. This project continues the implementation of that plan to
ensure that tennis courts remain in safe playing condition. Once existing courts, identified as needing to be retained, are recapped,
annual ongoing maintenance is required which includes repairs to nets and fences, and periodic reapplication of the acrylic protective
coating.

In the plan, it was identified that when courts identified for decommissiong reached a stage where they had excessive cracking and
became a safety hazard, they would be decommissioned. The tennis courts in Parc Canada have now reached that stage and the
2005 planned expenditure relates to the decommissioning of these courts.

Project Description
This project involves the redevelopment of various centre medians along major arterial streets. The work consists of curb replacement
where required, hard surfacing, installation of irrigation systems, tree planting, and containerized flower pots.

General Comments
Priorities are established annually in consultation with the various branches of the Infrastructure Services Department. The current
level of funding permits the rehabilitation of approximately two city blocks per annum. Prior years actual costs have been apportioned
approximately 75% for curb and utility replacements, and 25% for landscaping.

Previous work has been concentrated on Idylwyld Drive, College Drive, 8th Street (east of Cumberland Avenue), and 22nd Street West.
Proposed construction in 2004 will include Circle Drive (Northridge to Warman Road), to be done in conjunction with the roadway
upgrading. Possible future projects include Airport Drive and 8th Street from Cumberland Avenue to Lorne Avenue.

Project Description
This project funds annual preservation programs to rehabilitate collectors, the roads that collect traffic from residential roads within each
neighborhood. The objective of this program is to minimize the life cycle cost of preserving the collector roads, subject to minimum
acceptable levels of service. This program has been in place since 1988.

General Comments
Collector roads represent about 16% of all of Saskatoon's roads. The proposed 2004 program was originally based on 1999 data but
has been updated from the 2003 condition rating where this information is available.

Project Description
This project funds annual preservation programs to rehabilitate arterial roads, the high volume roads interconnecting neighbourhoods.
The objective is to minimize the life cycle cost of preserving these roads subject to minimum acceptable levels of service. This program
has been in place since 1981.

General Comments
Arterial roads represent about 20% of all Saskatoon's roads. Over the past several years, volumes, loads and the number of axles
(which accelerates deterioration) have been increasing. This, along with increasing treatment costs, will necessitate increases in
funding to sustain this infrastructure. The proposed 2004 program was originally based on 1999 data but has been updated from the
2003 condition rating where this information is available.

Project Description
This project involves the expansion, upgrade and maintenance of the core infrastructure for the City's trunked radio system. The
trunking system infrastructure is a corporate resource that is shared by all user departments. The system provides radio
communications for Police, Fire, Utility Services, Infrastructure Services and several Leisure Services facilities.

General Comments
The 2004 funds will be used to complete required system changes to enhance radio coverage for the South East sector of the City. As
well, the air conditioning unit that controls the environment housing the trunking system equipment at the Saskatoon Tower is osbsolete
and needs to be replaced. Finally, the fibre link between the Saskatoon Tower and Fire Hall #1 will be designed in 2004 and installed in
2005.

Project Description
The scope of this project has been modified to now include the planning, design and ultimate construction of both a new south river
crossing corridor and a new north river crossing corridor. The new river crossings are required to fulfill the cross river travel demand as
the City grows to the 250,000 population level and form key components of a future perimeter road.

General Comments
This project involves the functional planning, design and ultimate construction of the southwest quadrant of Circle Drive, including the
south river crossing and for a river crossing and associated roadway corridor in the northeast quadrant, in the vicinity of 71st Street.
Due to the complexity of the project, it is necessary to carry it out in phases.

Previous studies have identified the need for two new river crossings within the next 15 to 20 years, with the first one required in the
next 6 to 10 year period. For projects of this magnitude, the amount of lead time for functional and detailed planning/design is
considerable. Recognizing this, the functional planning for the facilities needs to start in the short term. A strategy has been developed
jointly with Saskatchewan Highways and Transportation (SHT) to provide for the planning of the river crossings and associated
roadways, including strategic ties into the future outer perimeter roadway. In each of the phases of the planning process, specific links
and corridors will be examined with the intent of finalizing alignments, river crossing locations and acquisition of rights-of-way. This is a
joint project with SHT, with funding being provided by both SHT and the City of Saskatoon.

Two functional planning studies are currently underway. The first is for the proposed south river crossing and connecting roadways.
The second is for the north river crossing and perimeter highway linkages from Highway 11 South to Highway 16 West. These projects
are planned to be completed by late 2004 or early 2005.

This project now includes the scope of Capital Project No. 1524 - Perimeter Road Planning Study.

The funding identified in 2007 and 2008 is for the final planning and design of the south river crossing project.

Project Description
This project involves upgrading of street lighting to current standards, in primarily, older residential areas by the installation of additional
lights and replacing mercury vapor fixtures with energy efficient high pressure sodium fixtures.

General Comments
In 1997 City Council modified this project to be completed in two phases. The first phase accelerated the street lighting upgrades
(mercury vapour to high pressure sodium) by increasing the funding through 1999. The second phase began in 2000 and involves the
addition of new lights and the relocation of existing intermediate lights.

The following neighborhood areas are proposed for the continuation of the phase II lighting improvements in 2004.

         •    Mount Royal (started prior years)
         •    Riversdale (started prior years)
         •    Buena Vista (started prior years)
         •    Caswell Hill (budget permitting)

Project Description
This project involves the enhancement of the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system.

General Comments
In 2004, the existing SCADA system prime computer and fail over computer will be replaced and the latest proprietary software version
will be installed. Two portable terminals and a remote terminal will be added to facilitate SCADA interrogation outside of the secure
area or at a remote location. Additional peripheral equipment will be upgraded or added. This includes replacement printers and
additonal batteries for the uninterruptable power supply.

It is expected that in 2008/2009, a major upgrade of the head end equipment and software will be required.

This project will be reviewed on an annual basis.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of the existing outdoor shelter clad switchgear (25kV) and provides for a new building to
handle the new equipment.

General Comments
The existing medium voltage switchgear expected useful life is considerably less than anticipated. Consequently, replacement is
required prior to the normal 30-year expectation.

It is proposed to design in 2008 the construction of a building and 25kV switchgear with construction in 2009. Transformation
upgrading is suggested for 2010. This proposal will be evaluated on an annual basis.

The actual electrical load growth is larger than the original design criteria anticipated. Consequently, larger capacity will be needed
meaning higher current ratings of switchgear, the need for a building and transformer capacity upgrade.

Project Description
This project involves the replacement of the Recreation Unit/Paddling Pool at A.H. Browne. The condition of this facility has
deteriorated to the point where consideration may have to be given to closing it down if not replaced. This project is consistent with the
Condition Assessment Study done in 1999 by Infrastructure Services Department whereby the study recommended phased major
repairs be carried out to recreation units and paddling pools throughout the City to extend their useful life and that replacements be
undertaken only when absolutely necessary.

General Comments
The Recreation Unit and Paddling Pool at A.H. Browne are both in dire need of replacement and has reached the end of its useful life.
The Recreation Unit walls and base are rotting, the roof is leaking, the floor has a crack from one end to the other, and the grade beam
has failed. As for the paddling pool, the concrete curbs in several areas are no longer repairable, the water inlet requires replacement,
and there are several cracks throughout the whole pool area. Repairing the facility is not an option as it cannot be brought up to current
Building and Provincial Health Standards economically and Saskatoon Health Region will not allow the City to replace the paddling pool
and building without bringing it to current standards. Some of the Standards which need to be addressed include making the facility
fully accessible, installing a circulation and filtration system with automated water treatment system, providing a backflow prevention
system, and electrical upgrades. The type of water feature to be designed and constructed in this park (ie: Spraypool or paddling pool)
is determined from input at public meetings of the neighbourhood, which are coordinated by the Community Services Department,
Community Development Branch.

To date, the recreation unit buildings and pools at Sutherland (1999), Westmount (1998), North Park (1997), and Thornton Park (1996)
have been replaced. In addition to this, a number of upgrades and major repairs, as outlined in the Condition Assessment Study, have
been completed at facilities throughout the City. With these continuing repairs, A.H. Browne is the only full replacement currently
planned for the next five years.

Project Description
This project involves replacement of water meters with new encoded meters which have capability of remote and/or central reading.

General Comments
This project combines the need to replace the existing water meters due to obsolescence with meters designed for the proposed
implementation of an automatic meter reading system by the Treasurer's Branch within the next several years.

The project includes the eventual replacement of all residential and commercial meters to ensure that all meters are compatible with the
automatic meter reading technology. The timing of the meter replacements is based on current installation resources with estimated
completion in 2013. The 2004 estimate includes $50,000 towards the evaluation of a remote reading system.

Project Description
This project involves the replacement of the 14.4 kV switchgear and a major upgrade to the substation.

General Comments
A new building was started in 2003 and will be complete and ready for the new switchgear in 2004.

The existing 14.4kV switchgear is at an advanced age except for several cells which were added at various times. This switchgear
does not have the full fault withstand capacity required with the upgrade of the Bulk Power system and the announcements from Sask
Power respecting new local generation.

The installation of new switchgear will start in 2004 and should be complete by 2005. The existing building will be demolished (2005)
once the original switchgear and accessories are removed.

This project is linked to project # 1085, Electric Substation - C. D. McGall.

Project Description
This project involves the design and construction of a sludge recovery and disposal system and related structure at the Water
Treatment Plant. Sludge generated in the waterworks pre-treatment process is currently being returned to the river in slurry form. It is
a heavy precipitate (predominantly calcium carbonate) which settles out on the riverbank. This project is required to meet Sask
Environment's regulatory requirements and hence the permit to operate.

The parameters used for process design and sizing of the dewatering units are 58,678 kg/d for Maximum Day Sludge, 27,942 kg/d for
Average Day, and a back wash effluent discharge rate of 700 cubic meters/hour.

General Comments
The revised estimate is based on the costs to locate the facility at the Water Treatment Plant. The processed sludge will be trucked
from the Plant to the Landfill for disposal. Other funding comes from Federation of Municipalities Green fund grant.

Project Description
This project involves the design and construction of a new upstream intake and pumphouse facility. The new intake structure will have
a design flow of 150 MIGD. The pumphouse will include a screen chamber, three screens, wet well, two vertical turbine pumps, and an
emergency generator. Also supply mains from the pumphouse to the Queen Elizabeth Power Station (QE) are required.

General Comments
Currently, in order to meet high demand it is necessary to use the low lift pumps located at the Water Treatment Plant in addition to the
intake and pumping system located at QE. With the location of several storm water outfalls between these two intakes, the quality of
raw water is jeopardized.

This project will ensure that all raw water intake will occur upstream of the City's storm sewer outfall structures. The Water Treatment
Plant lowlift pumps will then be used as a standby facility only. Also it will ensure that present raw water demands are met and provide
future capacity in accordance with the City's future growth study.

The construction has been deferred to 2005 to provide sufficient time to obtain land and the necessary approvals from the Federal
Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Sask Environment and the MVA.

Project Description
This project involves the installation of a new vault complete with transformers, cables and all ancillary equipment. The location will be
immediately north of the existing vault on Auditorium Avenue and south of 22nd Street.

Load growth from both the existing customers and redevelopment potential within the plan period of the budget will require the
installation of more capacity.

General Comments
The Midtown Plaza and the existing adjacent customers loads are approaching the capacity of the existing system. There are two
parking lots, one between Auditorium Avenue and Idylwyld Drive and the other adjacent to Pacific Avenue and 22nd Street which can
readily be redeveloped. There are redevelopment proposals once again for at least one of the parking lots.

This project will be reviewed on an annual basis and is dependant on general load growth and redevelopment. This project provides for
a vault, transformers, one block length of primary and secondary cable and all ancillary equipment.

Project Description
This project involves the installation of a new vault complete with transformers, cables and all ancillary equipment approximately in front
of 134 - 3rd Avenue South. Adjacent to the new Public School Board office, it has been proposed to redevelop the property
immediately north. Other development in the area and a proposal to convert the electrical overhead system will necessitate an
additional vault.

General Comments
This project will be reviewed on an annual basis and is dependent upon development and the ability or need to transfer existing
customers from the overhead system to the network. The project provides for a vault, three transformers, one block length of primary
and secondary cable and all ancillary equipment.

Project Description
This project involves the installation of a new vault, transformers and cables to supply the loads caused by the redevelopment of the
area south of 19th Street and adjacent to the proposed extension of 2nd Avenue. This area is referred to as the South Downtown
Development (SDD).

General Comments
At the time of this budget, there are no specific development plans, however, electric supply requirements may begin as early as the
end of 2004. It is anticipated that load density in this area will not be as high as other downtown areas and will not require the same
capacity as many of our existing downtown vaults. Options matching load requirements will be considered in the design. This project
is also to be coordinated with the South Downtown Feeder projects.

This project will be reviewed on an annual basis and is dependant upon redevelopment on the noted site and the extent the
redevelopment impacts the existing overhead system.

Project Description
This project will cause the upgrading of the under sidewalk secondary network transformer vaults in the Central Business District.
Various structural upgrades and sidewalk grate repairs will be done.

General Comments
The first secondary network transformer vaults were installed in 1966. Subsequent vaults have been installed as development
occurred. There is currently a total of 15 network vaults. General deterioration of the structures necessitates repair and upgrades to
current standards. This will include the installation of ceiling support beams and replacement of sidewalk grates to accommodate
higher sidewalk loads and pedestrians walking over the surface as well as other structural elements. It is expected a minimum number
of two vaults per year will require upgrading or major maintenance. This project will be reviewed on an annual basis.

Project Description
This project will cause the upgrade of all secondary network transformers in the Central Business District with 14.4 kV high voltage
switches. The existing primary switches will be removed and replaced with new non-load break separable connectors. Each modified
transformer will also be overhauled and retested, restoring the transformer to a like new condition.

General Comments
There are currently 20 network transformers that require the replacement of the 14.4 kV primary switch with high voltage bushings in
order to bring these transformers up to current standards. The process of renovating these transformers will include:

         •   Removal of the core
         •   Complete internal inspection
         •   Removal of the high voltage switch
         •   Installation of new high voltage bushings
         •   Cleaning and repainting of the transformer
         •   Performance of standard tests with report

The transformer will be restored to a like new condition and is expected to perform as such.

Project Description
This project involves expansion within the downtown network system that are not part of a specific development project. By
establishing our facilities at locations where development has begun but there is not yet specific customers, it ensures that facilities will
be in place when they are required and a cost benefit can be realized by coincidental construction with other municipal projects.

General Comments
This project will be reviewed annually and coordinated with other municipal projects as well as specific electrical projects in the
downtown network.

Project Description
This project involves the purchase of an Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) system to acquire data from revenue meters and transmit the
data to a central location.

General Comments
This project will have a minimum of two stages:
    1) The first stage is under way and will be the preparation of a Request for Proposals. This stage may require fact-finding
         missions and similar AMR system information searches. It is expected that the City revenue metering for water and electricity
         at minimum would jointly use this system. However, other agencies such as Sask. Power and Sask. Energy may wish to
         participate. This project will cover the acquisition of all the support facilities and personnel costs. This would include
         consulting fees, labor costs, computer software and hardware, communication equipment and costs associated with the
         revenue meters.
     2) The second stage will be the installation of an AMR system based on the consultants report.

A request for proposals will be forwarded to the suppliers of these systems. The selection and testing emphasis will be on timely
collection of revenue metering data with accuracy and communication reliability. The competing system technologies will be
considered respecting the impact on meter reading, billing and customer service.

The funding noted has been reduced from previous years to reflect expectations.

Project Description
This project involves the renovation and upgrading of the Utility Services - Electric System facilities located at Brand Road.

General Comments
It is proposed to develop plans to address a series of problems that will require upgrades and improvements to the Utility Services -
Electric System facilities. Within the Office area, the heating, ventilation, cooling system and other building infrastructure will require
major equipment replacement and modifications. This work will involve a combination of improving equipment operating efficiency and
replacement of worn out equipment. The lighting, air-handling motor drives, air conditioning compressors are examples of the issues of
concern. Stores Warehouse and Stores Yard requires facilities to permit the handling of more materials within the existing space. It is
expected that enhanced warehouse tiered storage and outdoor-tiered storage will be put in place and a cold storage building
constructed. Other issues that are to be considered include upgrades respecting site security, monitoring systems, which include the
fire alarm system and other building infrastructure systems.

An analysis of the energy use by the Electrical Operations Center conducted in 2001 identified areas of concern. These include the
mechanical system, lighting system, the building exterior skin, etc. Improvement to reduce unnecessary energy consumption and
waste of energy has started in 2002 but has not been completed.

This project will be reviewed on an annual basis.

Project Description
This project will put in place the equipment and programs necessary to comply with Measurement Canada Specifications required for
accreditation of the City Electric System Meter Shop.

General Comments
Measurement Canada has transferred to the private sector the verification of revenue meter accuracy. Accreditation of the City Electric
System staff and equipment is required to assure that meters can continue to be dealt with in an effective manner.

Phase II of the accreditation process will involve staff training, purchase of specialized equipment to completely implement this new
program.

Prior Budget Approval                $70,000

It is suggested an additional meter test board will be required to provide adequate testing capacity and redundancy of testing capability.

Project Description
This project is to determine and then install the upgrades necessary for the transformer and relay test area. It is expected that fact
finding missions to other western electrical utilities and manufacturing plants would be done to identify the future needs. The objective
is to form a new infrastructure for the next ten years.

General Comments
It is expected that the equipment now in use to do general high voltage testing will be replaced, as it does not reliably operate due to
advanced age.

Relays are now being purchased which are exclusively electronic. Consequently, it is expected that some portable test sets and built in
test sets will be identified.

Modifications where needed as a result of the new equipment to the room or the building systems will not be part of this project.

Project Description
This project is to provide upgrades to existing roadways where the lighting is now considered to be below standard. This may be due to
roadway reclassification, traffic pattern changes, jurisdiction changes, or other causes. It is expected these lighting upgrades could be
on arterial roadways, highways within the City boundaries, or other roadways with higher traffic volumes.

General Comments
It is proposed to review the City of Saskatoon Lighting System and prepare a recommendation for upgrades extending over the next
five year period (2004 to 2008) and beyond as necessary.

Funding for this project is shown in total from the City Electric System Reserves. Additional funding may be available as projects are
identified in consultation with other agencies that would provide supplemental funding to meet their objectives. A potential cofunder
would be Department of Highways.

Project Description
This project is to investigate new power supply options for the City of Saskatoon Electric System. It will cover the cost of consulting
services to prepare cost benefit analyses of various power supply options and green power.

General Comments
The project started in 2003 with the investigation of a biomass cogeneration facility and that report will be complete in 2004. An
additional investigation will consider the gas produced at the Waste Water Treatment Plant as a fuel. It is expected that existing
customers may make additional proposals during the budget year. Consequently, there may be a requirement for post budget
adjustments.

This project will be reassessed on an annual basis.

Project Description
The objectives of this project are to progressively convert the existing 4.16 kV primary distribution to 14.4 kV in the intermediate
substation (14.4/4.16 kV) service area. This project is related to project 1332 "Elec S/S (14.4/4.16 kV) Service Life Ext.". This project
does not include work within existing substations to lengthen the service life or other work within the substation. This project does not
include specific feeders primarily running through the service area to another load center.

General Comments
It is proposed to convert the overhead distribution primary system from 4.16 kV to 14.4 kV in the areas now supplied by the following
substations:
14th Street, Garfield, Montgomery, Ruth Street, Avenue A, 1st Avenue, Main Street, Avenue W, 29th Street and Lorne Avenue. Work
in 2004 will begin with Garfield Substation.

The intermediate substation equipment will typically be in excess of 40 years of age when conversion occurs. Project 1332 will provide
any substation equipment necessary to provide a reasonable service quality until the conversion is completed.

The actual work will be broken down into two basic components. The distribution and the 14.4 kV feeder extension (see project 1314
and 1318). The actual area being converted will include the distribution transformers, ancillary devices and down stream equipment.
Should there be costs from other Utilities, Agencies etc., these costs will be considered part of the distribution. The 14.4 kV feeder
extension will include poles, cabling and ancillary devices from the Supply bulk Substation switchgear supply lugs to its termination and
is not part of this project. This applies to the main run of circuit only.

The proposed schedule is based on the relative age of equipment, electrical demand load, area development and numbers of
customers being affected. The order noted is arbitrary and assessment is qualitative. Major equipment or component failure or other
unpredictable events can alter this schedule. Annual reassessment will be done.

Due to the interrelationships detailed examination of the long-range plan is necessary on a 5-year basis. The proposed schedule of
conversion is as follows:

1.       Years 2004 - 2005        Garfield S/S
2.       Years 2008 - 2016        Avenue A S/S
3.       Years 2008 - 2016        1st Avenue S/S

Project Description
This project provides for new 25 kV distributions from the W. A. Friebel Substation, which has been proposed in project 1312 Electric
Substation - W. A. Friebel. These new 25 kV feeders will provide the Electrical Distribution within the University Heights area served by
the City's Electrical Distribution System.

General Comments
The four proposed distribution feeders will be used to provide service for the development being proposed between the river and
Sutherland, and Silverspring. These feeders will be tied to existing feeders out of W. J. Bunn Substation to provide backup. The
construction of these feeders will be dependant on development.

Construction of the first feeder to Circle Drive and Attridge was begun in 2002. It is expected that the permanent underground cables
for the lines running to new Preston Crossing complex with be installed in 2004. The changes and upgrades to these lines are a result
of the realignment of 108th Street, Preston Avenue Widening and Preston Crossing Development on either side of the roadway.

Project Description
This project provides for the extension of two new 14.4 kV feeders. These two feeders will connect to both the Avenue C and North
Central substations. These two feeders will be use to convert the existing 4.16 kV overhead system to 14.4 kV operation.

General Comments
The existing Avenue A substation and the First Avenue substation are now at an advanced age. Major components at both substations
are over 40 years old. Maintenance due to the age of the equipment and unavailability of parts will become more difficult and
expensive. Also, major component failure can be expected due to the advanced age with resulting long repair times.

There are redevelopment proposals such as the Southeast Riversdale Design Plan which are directly impacted by the Avenue A
substation.

The general concept will reduce the number of front street overhead electrical lines and maintain overhead service in the lanes. This
work will be coordinated with existing and future streetscape upgrades.

This project is in conjunction with project 1308 Elec Feeders Conversion Intermed S/S.

Project Description
This project is to build a new transmission line from the proposed Sask. Power QE19 west side loop to the City's existing bulk power
transmission line. It is suggested the connection point will be adjacent to the J. R. Cowley substation.

General Comments
Sask. Power is proposing to construct the westerly loop of a 138 kV transmission line. This announcement was included in the "Sask.
Power 10 year Transmission Development Plan" released May 2002. The proposed in service date is 2006.

The exact routing of the City's transmission line will be determined as part of a planning study in 2004. Construction is expected to
commence in 2006 and run through 2008.

This transmission line (bulk power supply) is needed to assure adequate capacity is available from the North West under major bulk
power system failure conditions.

Project Description
This project involves both an investigation of the extent of transmission line foundation corrosion or other metal failure modes and initial
mitigation. The structures of most interest are steel lattice installed in the late 1960's. There are three metal failure modes of interest;
mechanical, common corrosion (metal oxidization) and galvanic corrosion (due to stray electrical currents).

General Comments
The existing steel lattice transmission towers use a steel gillage as the foundation foot. These are direct buried below the normal frost
line. This project will expose some of these foundations to assess the level of corrosion or other deterioration. It is expected that a
series of sacrificial anodes will be installed around each tower to prevent or slow further galvanic corrosion. Other remedial measures
include installation of barricades for mechnical protection. The actual investigation to correct structural strength deterioration beyond
immediate needs will be under the project and budget based on the findings of the study. This project is to be coordinated with project
# 1154 WTP - Sludge Recovery & Disposal involving tower relocation.

Project Description
This project provides for the upgrade of existing live-front to dead-front switching cubicles in the underground system. This project is to
be completed over multiple years.

General Comments
In the older underground distribution areas, underground cable terminations were installed such that energized parts are exposed once
the cabinet is opened (i.e. live front). The newer installations tend to be manufactured with no energized parts exposed with the cabinet
open (i.e. dead-front). System adjustments and maintenance tend to cause longer outages to system customers where live-front
equipment is involved. Upgrading of the existing live-front equipment to dead-front is being considered. The object for upgrading is to
improve general system reliability and better manage/minimize customer outages. Equipment assessment will consider age of
installation, present condition, specific reliability issues and outage management improvement through upgrade. The schedule for
replacement will be for upgrades giving the best improvement to be first. The schedule for replacement has been amended to speed up
the transition.

In 2004, cubicle replacements will concentrate in the College Park, Meadowgreen and Eastview areas. Other locations may be
considered where maintenance or operational issues provide opportunity.

This project will be reviewed annually.

Project Description
This project provides for the extension, replacement and renovation of 14.4 kV feeders from Melville Street Substation to the Main
Street Substation to supply higher electrical energy demands and to maintain sufficient confidence in supply.

General Comments
Three feeders will extend from the Melville Street Substation to the Main Street Substation. One feeder will follow a route from Melville
Street substation east of the river and primarily west of the Idylwyld Drive Freeway and then easterly to the Main Street Substation.
This feeder will be used for primary voltage conversions effectively parallel to the river. The other two feeders are dedicated to supply
Main Street Substation. The purpose is to transfer Main Street Substation from the Avenue C substation to the Melville Substation
thereby reducing the load on the heavily loaded Avenue C Substation.

This project is linked to project # 935 Electric Substation - Melville Street.

Prior Budget Approval                           $550,000.

Project Description
This project involves upgrades to the existing underground electrical distribution from 4.16 kV to 14.4 kV in Nutana Suburban
Neighborhood. Existing redevelopment along Preston Avenue will be supplied from the existing 14.4 kV system, which has already
been extended into the neighborhood. This system now supplies Market Mall.

General Comments
Nutana Suburban Neighborhood began development in approximately 1962. The development has been a combination of commercial
(Market Mall), institutional (two high schools), recreation complexes (private curling club, public indoor & outdoor facilities) and high
density residential (seniors high-rise & others). Redevelopment of the existing properties is likely to occur adjacent to Preston Avenue
and Adelaide Street.

A conversion is being considered for this area, as there are problems with the existing system beyond inadequate electrical capacity.
The existing cable and equipment is generally over thirty years old and some is about to exceed forty years of age. The cable will
require upgrading soon to limit failures due to normal aging.

The construction methods in the 1960's called for large numbers of switching/junction cubical which are now problematic respecting
general maintenance and tend to extend repair times under fault conditions. The current construction technique should reduce the
need for many of these cubicles. The newer style cubicles can be utilized for general upgrading required in other parts of the
distribution system.

This area has a relatively small number of service drops, as service tends to be concentrated in a number of large buildings.
Consequently, the number of connection points for cable and the number of transformers is relatively small.

A more detailed design has been prepared and the transition from 14.16 kV to 14.4 kV is anticipated to be in three stages. The estimate
has been adjusted in accordance with the detail design.

Project Description
This project will provide two additional 14.4 kV switchgear cells complete with breakers and relays in the years 2004 and 2005. This
project will provide for an additional 138/14.4 kV transformer, which provides the full transformation capacity for backup requirements of
the Avenue C Substation.

General Comments
Upon installation of the second Power Transformer, the North central substation will have sufficient transformation and distribution
capacity to provide an alternate supply of electrical power for the downtown.

Project Description
This project involves reliably extending the service life of existing medium voltage substations (14.4/4.16 kV). The time in service for
these substations is either approaching 30 years or may have already exceeded 40 years. Technological change and economics are
leading to the eventual retirement of these stations. However, it is necessary to have a transition period, which may be ten years or
more. Prioritizing of the individual substations and determining practical service extension will be done. Major system equipment within
these substations can be expected to fail during this time period as the equipment useful/economic life is nearing its end or has been
exceeded. It is considered unreasonable to allow such failures to seriously compromise general system reliability. As equipment
failure is typically random, sufficient system redundancy, and reliable protective equipment must be in place.

General Comments
It is not generally considered economic to extend the existing system destined for retirement. Consequently, load transfers will be
necessary to other systems to assure redundancy at the 4.16 kV distribution level. This work will not be part of this project.
Redundancy within the substation will be to maintain sufficient transformation and distribution capacity to assure the system load can
be carried in the event of equipment failure.

The existing protective equipment within the Substations is usually of the same age as the other major equipment components.
Consequently, upgrades and/or replacements may be necessary on critical parts to provide a reasonable confidence of effective
operation.

This project will cover work within the individual substations and, where applicable, the dismantling of the substation and preparation of
the site for disposal of land. The actual cost recovery from land sales is expected to be included. However, environmental mitigation
may exceed the property value.

Project Description
This project is a major upgrade of the electrical substation primary distribution system. This will involve the potential upgrading and/or
replacement of the switchgear and the infrastructure, which supports that system.

General Comments
This substation was built in 1980. However, one of the Power Transformers has been in service since 1957. This transformer must be
retired, as it is already over 40 years old. The switchgear although constructed in 1980 no longer has a ready source of replacement
parts. One breaker assembly has already been replaced due to serious damage interrupting a feeder electrical fault. There are serious
concerns in the ability of this equipment to maintain a reasonable confidence of operation into the future.

It is proposed to consider a number of alternatives respecting the upgrading of this substation. This will include the fundamental layout,
reuse and/or replacement of existing equipment.

On-line monitoring equipment has been added to the substation transformers and switchgear. A continual assessment of the
equipment condition will be performed and remedial actions will be scheduled on the basis of these assessments.

Project Description
This project involves the expansion and renovating of the existing building to accommodate expansion of the 14.4 kV switchgear and
upgrading of the 4.16 kV switchgear. To meet the expected increase in demand an additional 138 kV/14.4 kV transformer and the
necessary 138 kV switchgear are part of this project.

General Comments
The first stage of this project was begun in 1990 and effectively completed in 1995. This project was identified as part of a load
forecast extending out to the year 2021. The second stage is identified for years 2003 to 2005.

New 14.4 kV switchgear was installed in the first stage. It is presumed only additions to the existing switchgear are required. A
minimum of 6 additional cells is expected. Relaying will be upgraded to a common standard.

The existing 4.16 switchgear is in two generations 1965 & 1990. The oldest equipment will be 40 years old when this project
component starts. It is likely only replacement will be practical. The equipment dating from 1990 will likely require updating of relays
and modifications to meet the current standards.

This project will be assessed on an annual basis and will be dependent upon the load increases of the surrounding residential and
commercial neighborhoods.

A detail design is now complete, the 14.4 kV switchgear has been ordered, the major addition to the building is no longer necessary
and the budget has been adjusted accordingly.

Project Description
This project provides for upgrading of the existing transformation, supply and distribution switchgear and substation infrastructure.

General Comments
The College Park Substation equipment was manufactured and installed in 1969. It will have been in service for more than 30 years
when upgrading begins. It is expected that upgrades and replacement of basic infrastructure will be required. This includes the AC
System, DC system, remote telemeter unit (RTU), lighting, etc. The existing switchgear will be assessed. It is presumed that the 14.4
kV switchgear will be replaced and the 4.16 kV switchgear will be renovated.

The existing transformation does not allow for local voltage control. It is expected this would become a problem as distribution loads on
both the 14.4 kV system and 4.16 kV system grow. It is proposed to put in place equipment to facilitate the local voltage control at 4.16
kV.

Switchgear Shunt Capacitors are proposed to be installed in the substation to balance the power factor. At least two levels are
proposed of 2.4 MVA (Total 4.8 MVA).

Project Description
This project provides 14.4 kV primary supply protection for the existing two power transformers.

General Comments
This substation 14.4 kV primary supply is also used for primary distribution supply. The existing protection scheme will likely result in
faults within the substation or its 4.16 kV distribution system causing the entire 14.4 kV feeder to be taken out of service. To rectify this
unacceptable situation, an interrupter is proposed for each transformer. The normal protection schemes for a power transformer is
expected. (i.e. differential, inverse, fast gas, etc.)

Detailed design and construction is proposed for 2004 to confirm equipment requirement and provide a detailed estimate.

Project Description
The commercial area along the northern boundary and multi residential area along the western boundary of Brevoort Park are being
upgraded from 4.16 kV to 14.4 kV primary electrical distribution system. This is approximately the blocks with 7th Street, 8th Street,
Argyle Avenue, and Preston Avenue. The inner portion of Brevoort Park will retain the existing underground 4.16 kV primary electrical
distribution. This project has been underway since 2002 and will conclude in 2004.

General Comments
The northern boundary of Brevoort Park has seen significant load growth due to the upgrading of the commercial property fronting onto
8th Street. Brevoort Park general load growth for the single family and duplex residential continues but has been lower. The objective
of this project was to install new 14.4 kV capacity along the north and west perimeter and utilized the spare capacity that would be
made available on the 4.16 kV system for the remaining residential area. The new overhead 14.4 kV distribution system is now in place
within the most northerly and most westerly blocks of Brevoort Park and was concluded in 2003.

The majority of the work remaining for 2004 will be the following:

         •    seasonal repairs such as patch paving of lanes and parking lots dug up in late 2003 as part of equipment upgrades.
         •    the replacement of the underground cable for distribution feeder #12 extended from the J. M. Taylor Substation
         •    the installation of three dead front switching cubicles as part of the realignment of the 4.16 kV feeders within the
              neighbourhood.

Project Description
This project will consolidate all critical Police Service Operational Systems and Interfaces to operate on a one-server environment with
an online off-site stand-by server.

General Comments
The purpose of this project is to integrate the separate police systems and interfaces in our data centre, which presently run on a
number of different network servers, onto a common server with an online (offsite) redundant server.

Benefits include:
          • More secure environment to protect our more mission critical systems against downtime caused by environmental or
              human circumstances.
          • Increased processing performance and load balancing for future applications where voice, video, telephony, data, etc. will
              be shared over a common network.
          • More efficient management of a centralized systems architecture.

In normal operation, the stand-by server would share in the processing load. However, in the event of server failure the other would
take over all processing at a continued acceptable level of service, until such time as the malfunctioning machine is repaired and
brought back online.

Operating Impact
Additional backup server support and software licenses; 2004 $10,000.

Project Description
The Police Service Microsoft Windows Based Systems and Applications will be consolidated into one server environment with an online
off-site stand-by server. This will provide a more secure operating environment for our MS Office and Windows based operational
systems.

General Comments
The purpose of this project is to integrate the separate Microsoft Windows based, office and police application, systems in the Police
data centre, which presently run on a number of different network servers, onto a common server with an online (offsite) redundant
server.
This will provide a number of benefits such as:

         •   More secure environment to protect the MS Windows based mission critical and office systems against downtime caused
             by environmental or human circumstances.
         •   Increased processing performance and load balancing for future applications where voice, video, telephony, data, etc. will
             be shared over a common network.
         •   More efficient management of a centralized systems architecture.

In normal operation, the stand-by server would share in the processing load. However, in the event of server failure the other would
take over all processing at a continued acceptable level of service, until such time as the malfunctioning machine is repaired and
brought back online.

This project began in 2003 and will be completed in 2004.

Prior Budget Approvals                       $100,000

Project Description
This project serves as a fund for the installation of railway crossing improvements undertaken by Canadian National and Canadian
Pacific Railways at level crossings within city limits. Under the current funding agreement with Transport Canada and the railways,
each party is responsible for a percentage of the costs associated with safety upgrades done at level crossings, ie., gates and
automated warning systems.

General Comments
These crossing improvements are typically mandated by Transport Canada through the issuance of a "Notice of Order" and as such the
city is required to participate in funding a portion of the improvement. Locations in 2004 include Idylwyld Drive and 25th Street, 22nd
Street between Avenues G and F, 11th Street and Circle Drive and the pedestrian crossing at 43rd Street, Assiniboine Drive and
Warman Road. It should also be noted that changing regulations by Transport Canada have resulted in increased funding
requirements as the warrant system for railway gate installations has changed.

Project Description
This project involves the detailed review and eventual implementation of long-term network improvements in the vicinity of Circle Drive
north corridor. The intent is to modify the roadway network in order to relieve congestion on Circle Drive between Millar Avenue and
Airport Drive.

General Comments
A consultant has been hired to review the current operation of the Circle Drive corridor and devise feasibility long-term network options.
This project will review those options in detail and recommend the best solution(s) to be brought forward for possible implementation.
Circle Drive currently has an Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) of 44,000 vehicles. The AADT is expected to grow to 50,000
vehicles in the near future. Without major network modifications the congestion will continue to increase and the roadway will operate
at an unacceptable level of service.

Project Description
This project is for the construction of an arterial roadway between 33rd street and Airport Drive.

General Comments
The construction planned in 2005 is for the initial 2 lanes or an ultimate 4 lane roadway extending along the north perimeter of the
neighborhood between the east collector and Airport Drive. The remaining roadway constructed in the future will be a 2 lane roadway
from 33rd Street to the east collector and will be subject to the development of the adjacent industrial lands( not shown).

The project is subject to approval by the Airport Authority and the Hampton neighborhood concept plan.

Project Description
This project involves the replacement of the existing automated containers (as a result of fires and non warranty damage) and
conversion of lane containers (300 gallon) to front street individual containers (100 gallon).

General Comments
There are approximately 10,000 lane containers and 28,000 front street containers in the system and each year approximately 1,000
require replacement, most of which are the lane containers. It is estimated that approximately 1200 front steet containers will be
purchased each year for conversions. Lane containers made available from conversion areas will be used for replacement purposes
whenever possible which in turn will free up funding for additional front street conversions.
Conversion efforts will focus on areas where excessive container damage and fires occur and where Community approval is received.

Project Description
This project involves the construction of additional public recycling drop-off depots. The depots will be approximately one half acre sites
to adequately allow the collection trucks to maneuver. The sites are designed to include gravelled areas and some paving, drainage,
fencing, signage and landscaping. Items accepted at the depots are paper, tin cans, beverage and milk containers, and clothing.

General Comments
The site selection process has proven to be onerous and a major hindrance to construction plans. This project is intended to extend
the life of the landfill.

Project Description
This project involves major rehabilitation of the City's traffic signal system and a program of life cycle replacement of major electronic
and hardware components.

General Comments
The City currently has 213 intersections under traffic signal control, with 110 of these intersections under central computer control. The
age of the equipment and electronics at the intersections date back to the 1980's. Due to the importance of reliability in safety and
operation of the traffic signals, there is a need to upgrade the existing aging infrastructure with current technologies. The intent of this
program goes beyond regular maintenance provided by the operating budget.

In 2002, the City purchased a modern Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) and began converting intersections from the
aging Integrated Traffic Control System (ITCS) to the ATMS. The conversion to the ATMS includes full inventory assessment of
intersection components, replacement of the traffic signal controller and any outdated components and continuous monitoring of
intersection operations. The operation of intersections through the ATMS provides a level of reliability, documentation, and optimization
not capable with the existing ITCS. Complete conversion to the ATMS will relieve the City of the outdated ITCS and its components,
allowing for more reliable operation and easier alteration of existing intersection controls.

The intent of this program goes beyond regular "maintenance" provided by the Operating Budget. As part of past components of this
program, high priority has been given to replacement of conflict monitors, traffic signal heads, pedestrian pushbuttons and poles and
cables in order to ensure effective and reiable operation of intersection traffic signal control. In 2004 the focus will be to upgrade all of
the conflict monitors to the latest versions and ensure compliance with industry specifications, replace outdated pushbutton technology
with reliable and user friendly equipment and continue with replacement of the smaller 200mm diameter signal heads with 300mm
diameter heads (including upgrading from hanging to bracketed connections at the pole arm).

Project Description
This project involves the replacement of sections of guardrail that have deteriorated to the point where structural integrity is
compromised as well as the installation of guardrail at locations in the City where abutting water bodies or other roadside obstacles
pose a potential hazard to errant vehicles or the public.

General Comments
The locations identified for replacement in 2005 and 2006 are for sections of guardrail on the Idylwyld Freeway between the river
crossing and Clarence Avenue. There are also several locations along Spadina Crescent where guardrails would improve the safety of
the roadway. In addition, locations such as the Idylwyld Drive/51st Street interchange have roadways adjacent to water bodies which
may require treatment.

Project Description
This project is a program for the installation of city entry signs welcoming the traveling public to the city of Saskatoon. A combination of
signs and/or landscaping will be placed at the Airport exit, major highway entrances into the city, minor but significant secondary
entrances into the city and at highway overpasses.

General Comments
The 2004 proposal will include the completion of Airport Drive City Entry sign and the design of major highway entry signs.

Airport Drive Sign
This component includes the construction of a Saskatoon entry feature at the exit to the Saskatoon airport near Airport Drive and 45th
Street. The entry feature will include signage, landscaping and lighting. While the site has been identified as a "primary" sign location
in the Highway Entry Features Concept Plan, the scale of the signage has been reduced to reflect the fact that Airport Drive is not a
highway and the travel speeds are only 60 kilometers per hour.

In 2003, this sign was estimated to cost $100,000 and included funding from a private source of $25,000. To date, no private funding
contribution has been committed. Due to the scope of the project, a more accurate cost estimate based on detailed design, and the
lack of private funding , a supplementary budget request of $60,000 is required.

Design
This component involves designing a scaled up version of the airport city entry sign, increased in size to reflect highway driving speeds
and its increased set back from the road. The extent of landscaping will be reduced to reflect the prairie landscape.

Project Description
This project involves the mitigation of shortcutting, speeding and safety issues through the use of traffic calming measures on local
roadways which parallel major routes. It also involves management of traffic through neighborhoods as a result of special events (an
example would be the closure of Broadway Avenue, for extended periods, for special events such as the Fringe) and all roadway
narrowings/bulbing that is carried out in the vicinity of schools.

General Comments
Over the last decade, traffic volumes on many of the City's expressways and arterials has increased to the point that motorists are
looking for less congested, alternate routes. This has resulted in traffic flows increasing on local roadways which parallel major routes.
These typically represent residential streets which were never intended to carry traffic flows beyond what the immediate residential area
would generate. Other problems on residential roadways are occurring besides this shortcutting. Traffic speed and pedestrian safety
issues are also becoming more prevalent.

Neighborhoods under review include:
        Nutana
        Varsity View/Brunskill
        Pleasant Hill
        Caswell Hill
        Brevoort Park

The need for traffic calming measures near schools has been identified and an accelerated program of review and implementation was
presented to City Council in 2001. The program proposes a three year schedule of school review and measure implementation in order
that every school receives a thorough review and necessary measures on a timely basis. Following this initiative, funding would return
to previous levels.

School/playground speed zone signing measures are addressed in P2006.

Project Description
This project involves the installation and rehabilitation of permanent pavement markings that have been installed on
freeway/expressway and arterial roadways over the last 20 years.

General Comments
There is no provision for this work in any operating budgets and rehabilitation/maintenance of the markings has only been conducted
under the arterial resurfacing program. Many of the permanent markings which have been installed have exceeded their design life and
in areas of heavy travel, such as weave areas and at intersections, the markings are completely gone.

The program includes the following activities:

1) Review, assess and replace permanent markings on freeway/expressway roadways as required.
2) Review, assess and replace permanent markings on arterial roadways as required.
3) Review, assess and replace crosswalk and stop line markings on the above roads.
4) Review, assess and replace guideline, continuity line and chevrons on the above roads.
5) Placement of semi-permanent markings on roadways rehabilitated by arterial resurfacing and micro surfacing.

This is intended to be an on-going, annual program.

Project Description
This project involves the design and construction of sound attenuation devices to reduce the negative impacts of vehicle related noise
on abutting residential properties.

General Comments
Complaints regarding traffic noise have been received from a number of areas within the city. The traffic sound attenuation project is
designed to address those residential areas that are adjacent to high volume roadways. A number of the locations currently warrant
sound attenuation, which are prioritized to receive attenuation in the coming years. Those areas that currently fall below the current
level of 65 dBA (Ldn) will continue to be studied and added to the list of outstanding locations which may require attenuation.
The construction of sound attenuation walls began in 2003 at the first three locations identified in the following list, as a result of sound
modeling work completed. Infrastructure Services will also take advantage of opportunities to construct small scale localized earth
berms over the next five years by coordinating with the Earth Fill-Site operating program.
The following list of locations shows areas where noise attenuation has been requested and studies have taken place. It is estimated
that $18,000,000 is required to complete all noise attenuation on the list.

Project Description
This project involves the purchase and implementation of a corporate wireless (radio) system infrastructure to provide mobile data
connectivity on a citywide basis.

General Comments
This project will provide individual departments with field access to information residing on corporate and departmental networks.
Network connectivity or the "LAN" will be accessible from the field. Cost of the core system infrastructure hardware required to support
radio communications from field devices will be funded corporately. Funding of radio modems and field computing devices will be the
responsibility of individual departments.

Background
With the phenomenal growth in use and application of computer technology, there is an increasing need to access information stored
on various computers throughout the corporation. Computer networks (LANS) have essentially addressed this issue for computers in
the office environment. However, the increasing reliance on computerization means that staff working in the field require computer
access to effectively do their jobs. For Public Safety, Public Utility and core services, timely access to information is required for cost
effective delivery of services, and in emergency situations, can save lives. A corporate multi-department committee is currently
planning for the shared use of this service.

Public Safety Issues
The Police Service has just completed replacing all of its old mobile data terminals with new laptops and is paying monthly charges to
Sask Tel for a cellular digital packet data service.

The Fire and Protective Services Department currently operates an Emergency Information Computer System that provides the radio
dispatchers at Central Alarm Headquarters, rapid access to vital information. The Fire Department intends to provide the same
information directly to fire apparatus during an emergency response. In many instances, vital information would be available to fire
fighters before the apparatus arrived on scene.

Utility & Public Service Issues
With the advances in technology, more portable and handheld computing devices are being used to record and upload information for
utility billing, building or site inspections and collecting other field data. Deployment of GIS (Geographic Information System) and GPS
(Global Positioning System) technology will provide a significant amount of mapping and other infrastructure data, as well as the ability
to provide automatic vehicle location to enhance Police dispatching. Field access to this information would benefit all utility and public
safety operations.

All of these applications share a common requirement. They require a wireless (radio) infrastructure for mobile devices to connect with
departmental and corporate computer information resources.

Project Description
This project involves pier repairs.

General Comments
The University Bridge was constructed in 1917 and is 82 years old. During 1972, a new concrete deck was constructed to permit
current legal highway loads. In 1957, the heavy concrete railing was removed and a steel railing was installed.

In 1957, the original face of pier G-H was wrapped with a concrete overlay 2 to 5 inches thick. This facing is cracked below the water
line and delaminated above water level. The nosing concrete at this pier is deteriorating and requires resurfacing. Pier E-F is also
showing substantial deterioration with loss of section in the ice zone which needs to be strengthened.

Project Description
This project involves the pigmented sealing of selected areas of the University Bridge.

General Comments
The rehabilitation work done in 1998 and 1999 was completed without application of pigmented sealer. The pigmented sealer is
installed to improve the appearance of the structure as well as offering protection to the structure.

Project Description
This project funds annual preservation programs to rehabilitate local residential roads. The objective is to minimize the life cycle cost of
preserving the local roads, subject to minimum acceptable levels of service. This program has been in place since 1996.

General Comments
Local roads represent about 57% of all of Saskatoon's roads. The primary program focus is on preservation of the road surface -
because these roads typically experience low volumes and low loads, the original road structure remains adequate while the surface
ages. The proposed 2004 program was originally based on 1999 data but has been updated from the 2003 condition rating where this
information is available.

Project Description
This project involves the development of the multi-district park on city-owned land in the University Heights Suburban Area. The City of
Saskatoon is working in partnership with the sectors of health, education, recreation and sport, and the library, in a new integrated
services model for the delivery of services on municipal reserve. The University Heights Multi-district park will serve as the "center of
community" for residents living in the University Heights Suburban Area. Subject to finalization of the University Heights Concept Plan
and available funding from the various sectors, this is a five to ten year development for the construction of integrated facilities, both
indoor and outdoor, that will provide community recreation programs (i.e. water, walking, wellness/fitness, and classroom activity),
soccer, education, health, and library services.

The first component of development starting in 2004 is the park that will include two outdoor artificial grass fields and two natural grass
fields. Increase in participation in the outdoor soccer program has resulted in an over-utilization of existing outdoor natural grass fields
during peak season and a shortfall of fourteen outdoor fields to meet league and practice schedules. The Saskatoon Soccer Centre
(Saskatoon and District Soccer and Saskatoon Youth Soccer Associations) is proposing to develop the two artificial outdoor fields at a
cost of $2.5 million. The development of the artificial grass field extends the outdoor season from March to late November. The usage
on one artificial field is the equivalent to usage on six premier quality natural grass fields. The Saskatoon Soccer Centre is requesting
25% ($625,000) of the capital cost for these fields with the remaining funds to be financed from the soccer community.

The second component of development starting in 2005 is construction of an indoor soccer facility with a full sized international artificial
grass pitch and three hard surface floor pitches. The cost of the complex is $9 million. The Saskatoon Soccer Centre is requesting
25% ($2.25 million) of the capital cost for the indoor facility with the remaining funds to be financed from the soccer community and
other fundraising initiatives. The soccer complex will serve the City's growing participation in soccer for adults and youth. The indoor
program growth rate has resulted in the need for a second indoor facility.

General Comments
Prior funding provided for the conceptual planning and public input process. The 2004 budget provides for the design and construction
of the first phase of the park development.

Roadway enhancement, servicing and pedestrian flow - 2004
During 2004, Nelson Road will be completed between its current terminus near St. Joseph High School and Lowe Road. This roadway
provides for general traffic movements with the University Heights Suburban center and particularly the developments at the University
Heights Multi-District Park. There will be increased intensity and concentrated use in this land area with two high schools, a soccer
complex, health services and community recreation. As a result of the technical review of the proposed concept design, revisions to
the Nelson Road design will feature two modern roundabouts and landscaping to assist in providing a safe pedestrian/vehicle

environment. As well, an integrated pedestrian access system will be provided. Due to the revisions to the concept plan, there will be
additional services costs associated with the proposal that are not funded from prepaid reserves.

Outdoor Soccer Artificial Fields - 2004
The project involves the construction of one-110 yard x 70 yard artificial grass soccer pitch and one-150 yard x 70 yard artificial grass
soccer/youth football field, field lighting, portable aluminum spectator stands (seating 1,000), fenced compound with controlled access
and natural grass and gravel for non-playing surfaces.

Indoor Soccer Facility - 2005
This facility consists of the construction of a 166,285 square foot steel building with 24,522 square foot second floor mezzanine and
spectator area and 1,080 linear foot walking track and spectator viewing platform. The facility includes one-110 yard x 70 yard artificial
grass pitch, three- 150 foot x 80 foot hard surface floor/pitches, concession (serve indoor and outdoor), lounge, weight training area,
offices and administration. The cost of the facility is 9.0 million.

Related Capital Project
Consultations to determine the program usage and activity space requirements for stakeholders and residents in order to develop the
concept design (size and configuration) for the indoor and outdoor facilities for the municipal reserve were approved under Capital
Project 1733 (University Heights Multi-Facility) in 2002 for $75,000.

Project Description
This project involves the reconstruction of Circle Drive between Millar Avenue and Northridge Drive.

General Comments
This road is a major corridor through the commercial district in north Saskatoon. Over the past several years, volumes, loads and the
number of axles (which accelerates deterioration) have been increasing. Surface distresses have been increasingly evident over the
past few years and some maintenance efforts have been made to sustain the surface a few years longer.

Funding requested in 2004 provides for an interim rehabilitation of the most deteriorated sections to maintain an acceptable level of
service.

This project has been approved under the Canada Saskatchewan Infrastructure Program; however, there is an outstanding request to
revise the timing and allocation of funding between this project and Project 653 Upgrade Preston (14th Street-CPR Tracks).

Prior Budget Approvals                                   $325,000

Project Description
This project consists of the reconfiguration and consolidation of the City Yards, north of the new 25th Street extension. The project will
include the decommissioning of buildings and operational facilities south of the new 25th Street and establishing new facilities on the
north side of 25th Street.

General Comments
The project will be staged over five years. The first stage is an environmental assessment of the new property acquisition and
developing a master plan of the yards layout. The environmental assessment has been completed. The master plan of the yards
layout is scheduled to be completed in 2003. Construction will then take place over the next four years, coordinated with the extension
of 25th street.

Project Description
This project involves the provision of park pathway lighting to existing neighbourhood parks, where the community has expressed a
strong desire for such lighting and where the park is not in the ten-year plan for general upgrading under the Neighbourhood Park
Upgrading project (901).

General Comments
The City is increasingly receiving requests from Community Associations, who are concerned for public safety, to provide pathway
lighting in neighbourhood parks. Willingness by communities to contribute to funding can potentially expand the amount of lighting that
can be provided in any year.

Possible projects in 2004 include pathways in Pacific and Rochdale Parks.

Operating Impact
Is to be determined based on actual construction, which results from requests by Community Associations.

Special Note
This project is contingent on funding to be provided by Community Associations.

Project Description
This project involves the installation of automated irrigation systems in Kinsmen and Rotary Parks over the next two (2) years. This will
provide for full irrigation coverage in Kinsmen Park, and the replacement of an old and failing manual watering system in Rotary Park.
The automated systems facilitate night watering of the Parks, allowing uninterrupted daytime use of the park, and the uninterrupted
application of water to maintain a high quality of turf in areas receiving intense public use.

General Comments
The project results from the implementation of recommendations made in studies conducted by the City and the Meewasin Valley
Authority and the deteriorating condition of the old systems and technology in both Kinsmen and Rotary Parks. As well, there is
increasing concern voiced by the public regarding the condition of the non-irrigated portions of Kinsmen Park.

Prior Budget Approvals               $274,000
Prior budget approvals reflect the design and construction of the systems in Kiwanis Park and Friendship Park.

Project Description
This project includes repairing the "ring" roadway, and the two one-way access roads in Diefenbaker Park.

General Comments
The condition of the roadways in Diefenbaker Park has continued to deteriorate over the past 10 years. Repeatedly, the roads have
been patched with operating budget funds to maintain a serviceable condition. However, the roadbed continues to breakdown and any
surface repairs including an attempt to resurface with recycled asphalt have failed to provide an acceptable solution. Public complaints
continue to mount and only a reconstruction project will address the concerns.

Project Description
This project involves installing testable backflow prevention devices on service connections to the City's potable water supply.

General Comments
Over the past years, there have been cases in Canada where municipal domestic water supplies have been contaminated by various
sources. The City has taken and is taking steps to ensure potable water systems are being protected against possible contamination at
connection points.

One potential area for contamination is through connections to the municipality's irrigation systems. Prior to 1990, irrigation systems
were designed and constructed without testable backflow devices. Currently, there are 87 park irrigation systems located in the City's
park system that require the installation of backflow prevention devices. It is planned to complete the installations over a 4-year period.

In terms of civic facilities, the other areas that need to be addressed are the connections to the domestic supply and to the fire sprinkler
systems located throughout the City's facilities that were constructed before the waterworks bylaw was changed. It is planned to
complete these installations over a 4-year period as well.

Project Description
This project is an annual program to undertake major rehabilitation and replacement of waste water sewer mains and appurtenances in
the waste water collection system.

General Comments
The network management component of this project involves the evaluation and planning to manage the capacity in relation to demand,
and the overall condition of the waste water collection system. The plan is to have in place, by 2004, an asset management framework
to optimize the expenditures on the rehabilitation and replacement of waste water collection systems and appurtenances.

The preservation program involves the project level design, construction administration and construction/contract activities to deliver the
annual major rehabilitation and replacement programs.

This program is a mix of replacement, spot repair, manhole rehabilitation and sewer service connection rehabilitation.

Project Description
This project is an annual program to undertake major rehabilitation and replacement of the pipelines and appurtenances in the large
diameter transmission system.

General Comments
The network management component of this project involves the evaluation and planning to manage the capacity in relation to demand,
and the overall condition of the primary water main system. The work on this network will focus on demand/capacity modeling and
cathodic protection.

The preservation program involves the project level design, construction administration and construction/contract activities to deliver the
annual major rehabilitation and replacement programs on the primary water distribution system.

The program in 2004 will continue to focus on corrosion protection on the primary water mains to control corrosion failures, a common
cause of leaks on these large diameter mains. It will take approximately until 2006 to complete the cathodic protection retrofit. A
second component of the program includes the replacement and retrofitting of control valves/chambers to provide for the shutdown and
isolation of the primary water main for maintenance and operations. Funding in the amount of $750,000 has been allocated to the
reconstruction of the primary water main on 8th Street from Saskatchewan Crescent to Lorne Avenue. This reconstruction will address
the condition of the water main as well as the risk associated with its proximity to overpass structures and waste water sewer mains.

Additional Information
For the redevelopment of the A. L. Cole site and adjacent lands:
P1871 proposes the demolition of the former City Electrical Building in 2005.
P1710 (A.L. Cole Site Master Plan) included the 19th Street location in the design plan funded in prior years.

Project Description
This program is an annual program to undertake major rehabilitation of storm water retention ponds and appurtenances. There are 14
storm retention ponds, 9 are wet and 5 are dry. An annual program of pond rehabilitation is required to ensure continued protection of
private property from storm events and ensure water quality.

General Comments
The network management component of this project involves the study of the capacity of storm ponds including overland drainage in
conjunction with trunk and storm sewer collection capital preservation. A computer model will be developed to ensure that proposed
improvements in one area of the collection system do not negatively impact other areas.

The preservation program involves the project level design, construction administration and construction/contract activities to deliver the
annual rehabilitation programs. The rehabilitation includes:

1) Sediment Removal - Depending on the silt load from the runoff and catchment area, both the wet and dry ponds need to be dredged
out when sediment levels impede the outlets and the pond volume no longer provides acceptable storage capacity.

2) Revetment Rehabilitation - Replacement of revetment around the shorelines that is lost due to water action and natural erosion.

3) Mechanical and Pump Replacement - Some of the ponds have pump facilities to operate spray heads, creek features and
recirculation/aeration systems. These pumps and wet wells require replacement every 5 to 10 years.

Project Description
This project involves the planned replacement of approximately 350 trees that will be removed from the Woodlawn Cemetery's urban
forest over the next several years.

General Comments
On January 1, 2003 the City began a Tree Pruning program at the Woodlawn Cemetery. The program was initiated as a part of the
Urban Forestry program's plan to maintain the health of Saskatoon's urban forest. Trees with significant dieback, decay, disease, or
those that pose a threat to public safety are removed. In addition, elm pruning and the removal of hazard elms remains a critical
component of the City's Dutch Elm Disease prevention strategy. Currently the Cemetery has an inventory of approximately 3,500 trees,
of which 2,300 are American Elm trees. Prior to the commencement of the work, the City Arborist evaluated all the trees and has
recommended that approximately 350 trees (approximately 200 elms) be removed over the next three years.

Many of the trees in Woodlawn Cemetery, approximately 1,300, have tree stands/plaques in front of them identifying that the particular
tree has been dedicated to someone who lost their life in the War. Many of these dedicated trees are in the vicinity of other family
members who have been interred at Woodlawn. Therefore, it is important to replace the tree in the same location as it was removed.
Some of the trees that have already been removed are ones that have been dedicated (identified by had a tree stand/plaque in front of
the tree). Thus, there is some urgency for replacing the trees in an expeditious fashion.

The reforestation process will begin in the fall of 2003, with the replacement of 15 trees along Memorial Avenue. The funding for these
replacements involves the re-allocation of some operating funds along with a matching Heritage Fund grant, approved by City Council
on June 23, 2003. The balance of the trees will be replaced (when funds are approved) over the next three (3) to five (5) years at a
rate of approximately fifty (50) trees per year.

Project Description
This project involves the development and installation of irrigation services on four centre medians in the Nutana area.

General Comments
Issue Paper #5 of the Nutana Local Area Plan (Nutana - Parks and Open Space relates to the deficiency of parks space in the Nutana
area) identified the need to get citizens involved in the City of Saskatoon's green space environment. The paper specifically states that:

         "Park and green space maintenance and urban forestry initiatives that maintain and develop this resource are supported and
         encouraged by this plan. In addition, initiatives that help residents maintain and develop boulevards through planting and
         gardening are encouraged. Citizen use of the boulevards can build a sense of community and reduce maintenance costs for
         the City."

On February 18, 2003, a meeting was held with the Median Partners that included representatives from the Community Services
Department, the Parks Branch and residents from the Nutana area. At the meeting it was agreed that the Parks Branch would supply 4
oak barrel planters and 200 feet of hose to the residents as a pilot project for the 2003 summer season. The Community Association
then purchased an additional 10 oak barrel planters from the Parks Branch.

Additional meetings were held with the Community Services Department, the Parks Branch and representatives from the Nutana
Community Association Median Partners and it was decided that to further enhance the boulevards, a Capital Budget item would be
submitted in 2004 for the installation of irrigation services on 4 center medians. This would allow the residents to manually water the
oak barrels, the turf, and the in-ground flowerbeds.

Project Description
This project involves conducting a condition assessment of the infrastructure components of the parks in the City's parks system, and
modifying the Parks Infrastructure Inventory Management System to facilitate monitoring and tracking of asset condition and long-range
forecasting of asset replacements.

General Comments
The Internal Auditor has recommended in his May 2003 Parks Maintenance Audit Report that a parks infrastructure condition audit be
undertaken to determine the current condition of all of the Parks infrastructure components in the City's Parks system. This information
will be used to prepare the long-term infrastructure replacement, refurbishment, and upgrading requirements plan as well as identify the
funding requirements to support the plan.

Project Description
This project involves the redesign and subsequent paving of the Rotary Park parking lot.

General Comments
The issue of dust abatement for the Rotary Park Parking lot has been discussed and dealt with in a variety of ways over the years.

The issue came before City Council on May 20, 2003 as a communication from the Park Terrace Condominium Association and
Council recommended, "that the matter be referred to the Administration for a report to the 2004 Capital Budget meeting". The
Administration's report was brought forward to City Council on August 11, 2003 and was subsequently referred to the Budget
Committee for consideration during the 2004 Capital Budget. The funding provides for the redesign and subsequent paving of the
parking lot.

Project Description
This project involves the construction of neighbourhood parks or city-owned land in the Willowgrove neighbourhood.

General Comments
Phase 1 of the Linear Park is to be constructed in 2004. During the design phase, there were two options considered for irrigating the
park, irrigating the street frontages only or irrigating the entire park. The option selected by the Developer and reflected in this budget
is to irrigate the entire park. The Property Realized Reserve will provide the required additional funding.

The 2007 funds reflect the design and construction of the Village Square.

Project Description
This project was initiated to resurface the asphalt pathways at the Zoo and to upgrade in areas of heavy vehicle use. Infrastructure
Services has undertaken an assessment of the asphalt pathways and has provided a plan for the most effective course of action for a
resurfacing program.

General Comments
The pathways are a maximum of 9 to 10 feet in width, vehicle travel from service trucks has caused the pathway surface to extensively
degenerate to the point where each spring there are large cracks in the asphalt which make it hazardous for older and infirm visitors
and frustrating for people pushing strollers. This project is a customer service improvement for visitors visiting the Zoo. It is expected
that the pathways will have a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years before replacement or resurfacing is necessary.

Project Description
Concern over increasing costs and the unsustainability of conventional development practices has led many cities in North America to
look at alternative development practices. The New Neighbourhood Designs Study (Project 1850) was completed in 2002, and
provides a review of issues, best practices and possible directions for Saskatoon, including a set of recommendations towards
increasing the fiscal, environmental and social sustainability of neighbourhood development and greater choice and opportunity in how
our new neighbourhoods are built. The Blakeney Crescent demonstration project applied some of this theory to a real-life scenario.

"Smart growth" is evolving as a key strategy to manage future growth, and Saskatoon's Plan Saskatoon process and Development Plan
establishes a solid "smart growth" vision for the shape of the future city and its neighbourhoods. There is a gap between that vision and
conventional development practices that needs to be addressed by amending regulatory policies and tools that affect the range and mix
of allowable uses, the design of roads and other infrastructure, and the location and provision of neighbourhood services, including
schools, open space and commercial developments. City Council is to receive a report on the Smart Growth Study which includes a
model for implementation.

The study recommends that the City formally adopt "smart growth" guidelines to guide future development, including defining
measurable outcomes for all elements of development that impact upon meeting the goal of more sustainable development. City
Council will receive this report in early 2004 for information and discussion.

With the direction of City Council, and in active consultation with civic and community stakeholders, this project will develop
performance objectives for new neighbourhoods, and where necessary, recommend amendments to policy and regulatory standards, to
enable the City of Saskatoon to provide a range of choices for new neighbourhood development that reflects the goals of the
Development Plan.

General Comments
Subject to the direction of City Council on adopting smart growth principles and strategies, the project will occur over 18 months, and
will include the following components:

1.       Performance Measures: in consultation with City Departments, the Developer's Liaison Committee and Saskatoon School
         Boards, define, develop and propose appropriate performance measures for roads, lanes, parks, housing types and mix,
         neighbourhood commercial and other specific neighbourhood amenities like pocket parks, institutional residential uses, and
         schools.

2.       Performance Outcomes: in consultation with City Council, define performance outcomes for future development in the City
         through a model which allows City Council to place varying degrees of importance to the performance measures identified in
         Step 1.

3.       Process for Review: establish a review process for submissions from developers related to the performance outcomes
         established for new neighbourhoods.

     Council.

Project Description
This project constitutes the next phase of the Future Growth Study, 1999. The Future Growth Study recommended that more detailed
sector plans for each recommended growth sector be undertaken. The sector plans will examine in more detail the technical
challenges and opportunities towards developing new Suburban Development Areas in the West, North East, and East growth sectors.
Factors to be examined would include configuration of new neighbourhoods, transportation linkages with existing and proposed road
networks, location of Suburban Centres, protection of natural areas, provision and cost of new water, storm and sanitary systems,
development of new district and multi-district parks and transit service.

General Comments
The project will be jointly managed by Municipal Engineering and City Planning Branches and consist of three phases over a three year
period. It is expected that an external consultant will be hired to undertake the above work.

Efficiencies gained on the West and North East Sector Plans have allowed us to reduce the capital budget request for the East Sector
from $85,000 to $25,000.

Project Description
This project provides for the purchase of meter reading routing software in order to automate the establishment and sequencing of
meter reading routes in a GIS based environment.

General Comment
Re-routing is necessary to maintain balanced, efficient routes resulting in a more efficient meter reading process. Manually creating
and managing meter routes is a time consuming, complex process. Re-routing has been done once in the past ten years. Involved in
the process were the 13-meter readers, route administrator and the section manager. As the Corporation migrates toward automated
meter reading, rerouting will have to be done more frequently.

Project Description
This project provides for the upgrade of software for the Cashier and Remittance Processing systems.

General Comments
The software currently being using by both Treasurer's and Planning is a cash register system that allows for payments to automatically
upload into various civic applications. The software is currently running under Microsoft Windows NT but was written to run under
Microsoft Windows 95. The software was purchased in early 1998 and is several versions behind, and will most likely be
unsupported in the near future.

The software that is utilized by the Treasurer's Office to process payments paid by mail, night deposit or at financial institutions was
acquired in December of 1998 and is running under a Microsoft Windows 95 version. The current version of operating system that is
standard for the City of Saskatoon is Microsoft Windows NT and next year the departments will be upgrading to Microsoft Windows
XP. Due to using an old version of operating system some of the software functionality has been lost. The software currently being
used will not be supported after 2004.

Project Description
This project provides for the continuation to the income assessment approach for commercial and industrial properties, funded by a
direct levy on commercial and industrial properties.

General Comments
Based on the premise that this property class will contribute funds to cover the incremental costs of moving to this assessment model,
the Saskatoon Combined Business Group (SCBG) have agreed to fund $450,000 towards this activity between 2002 and 2006. The
2004 funding continues to recognize the agreement with the SCBG.

This multi-year data-gathering and inspection program for commercial and industrial properties is required for the planned
implementation of the income approach to values for these properties by 2009.

Project Description
This project is to provide funding for the 2005 Property Reassessment ordered by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency
(SAMA) and legislated by the Province of Saskatchewan.

General Comments
The 2004 budget includes costs for research, programming changes, preparation of the assessment roll, preparation of preliminary
notification and preview of proposed values with property owners, preparation of assessment notices for all assessed owners, and the
defence of values as required in a timely manner.

Over the course of the next several months the Office of the City Assessor will be working with advisory committees, within Saskatoon,
made up of members of the public to assist in ensuring fair and equitable values under the rules of assessment as set forth by SAMA.
In addition, in the spring of 2004, preliminary letters of proposed values will be sent to all assessed property owners relating to their
proposed 2005 assessment values. This will provide the taxpayers of the City of Saskatoon with the opportunity to contact this office
should they have issues or concerns with their proposed values, prior to the official assessment notices being sent in the fall of 2004.
This process will enable discussion with the assessment department prior to property owners having the need to appeal should they
have concerns.

These new steps are being integrated to assist in moving forward towards a fair, open, understandable and defensible assessment
system for property owners in this City.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of the mailing and highlight colour printing systems.

General Comments
The current equipment was purchased in 1998 and is coming to the end of its useful life. The equipment is no longer current, the
maintenance contracts expired in October 2003, the failure rate is increasing and parts are becoming harder to find. The highlight
colour printing system now requires servicing on a weekly basis. The mailing system is regularly breaking down and was recently out
of service for almost two weeks, resulting in no Utility Bills being mailed to customers. This in turn impacted collections staff as late
payment charges are calculated from the date of the billing run and not the mailing date.

The project will be funded through a Productivity Improvement Loan (PIL) and cost recovered through user Operating Budget over a
five-year period commencing in 2005.

Project Description
This project provides for the purchase and installation of equipment needed to develop a second data centre location.

General Comments
In 2002 Prosser and Associates performed an audit on Disaster Recovery and Contingency Planning. In order to address the
recommendations made in the report from an IT perspective, the CIS Branch recommends splitting the Data Centre between the
current location on the 4th floor of City Hall and developing a second Data Centre in the Post Office building on 4th Avenue. Equipment
and production will be split between the two data centers. In the case of a disaster at one of the data centers, the second one will be
able to continue with production processing, albeit at a lower level of performance. The proposed project provides for a network router
to be installed in the new data centre in the Post Office building, which will provide high-speed access back to the data centre at City
Hall, and for the purchase of a second Storage Area Network. These two major pieces of equipment are required to effectively split the
processing power between the two locations and recover data in the case of a disaster at one of the data centers.

Project Description
This project provides for the hiring of a consultant to review the City' procurement process, which may result in the implementation of a
new or upgraded purchasing system.

General Comments
Over the past few years, the way companies procure goods and services has been changing. With the advent of Corporate Purchasing
Cards and procurement over the Web, the City needs to take a closer look at how it procures goods and services. There is also an
opportunity for the City to implement electronic requisitioning and move away from the paper process currently used. Phase I of this
project, in 2004, will provide for the hiring of a consultant, and based on the consultants recommendation Phase II, in 2005, will provide
for the replacement or upgrade of the current purchasing system (if required).

Project Description
This project provides for the purchase and implementation of software that will enable the City to have a current and up-to-date
electronic phone book and organizational structure available to all staff in the Intranet.

General Comments
The current internal phone book is out of date at the time of publishing and the ability to publish and distribute corporate organizational
charts is lacking. Both of these processes are very manual and time consuming. This project will allow the City to access data
electronically from the Human Resource system for both the on-line phone book and organizational charts. With a requirement to still
publish a paper copy phone book, the amount of manual effort to do this will be greatly reduced. Some of the features of this software
are as follows:
          - Automating the process for creating organizational charts, as well as maintaining and analyzing accurate human resource
          information.
          - Uses existing human resource data to create flexible, secure, web-based (internet and intranet) org charts for hierarchy,
          reporting relationships, head counts, etc.
          - Use to distribute accurate phone lists and other employee data that can be searched also.
          - Can be accessed by JAWS® for Windows screen reading software for the visually impaired. This is needed in order to
          support the visually impaired staff member who works on the information desk in the foyer of City Hall.
          - Provides various levels of security for viewing, and can control ability to copy data to the end-user's desktop.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of fire fighter self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), which have reached the end of their
service life.

General Comments
Firefighter self contained breathing apparatus units have a normal service life of fifteen years and must be replaced as per Compressed
Gas Association Regulation C-6.2-1996, Section 9.2, Service Life which states: "A cylinder must be condemned at the termination of a
15 year period following the original manufacturer's test date, and regardless of the last retest date".

Fire and Protective Services currently have 88 masks and 205 cylinders that need to be replaced on a rotational basis.

Project Description
This project includes the renovation and expansion of the Mendel Art Gallery, including the required design phases. The Mendel Art
Gallery needs a significant scope of facility alterations and additions to enable it to continue honoring its mandate in the immediate and
the longer-term.

To date the Mendel has completed a fundraising feasibility study, conducted by Ketchum Canada Inc., which indicates a favorable
outcome, and a Facility Development Plan with the guidance of Lundholm Associates Architects, a Toronto consulting firm with a
specialty in museum facility planning. The Facility Development Plan has been approved, the Mendel's Board and will be used to
identify and give priority to a logical sequence of facility upgrading and expansion.

The next step, planned for 2004, is the Schematic Design Phase. A 'call for proposals' will be prepared and submitted to attract
interested and qualified architectural firms. Once selected the architectural firm will develop solutions and schematic drawings for the
architectural, mechanical and electrical systems (based on the approved conceptual design), including a site development concept, a 3-
D model and/or computer generated images for the proposed facility, a cost estimate for the complete project, and a phasing plan to
accommodate the Mendel Art Gallery's continued operation during most of the construction period.

General Comments
The Mendel Art Gallery opened in 1964 (almost 40 years ago), boasting an award winning architectural design and a unique riverbank
park setting. Though it continues to function well in some areas, there are many serious problems with the existing building. Some of
these developed over time as art collections and programs have grown, the building and its systems have aged and museum practices
have changed. Other problems can be characterized as inherent shortcomings in the planning of the original building or the addition
added in 1975. There are problems of function/usage, location relationships, circulation/access, quantity of space, quality of space,
and technical performance (i.e. environmental controls). Combined, these shortcomings threaten the organization's continued ability to
fulfill its stated mandate and basic responsibilities. The Mendel's five-year capital plan addresses both the existing facility needs and
the required capacity to see us through the next 30 to 40 years of operation.

The Mendel's Facility Development Plan is based on a functional analysis of the existing operations and building leading to an
articulation of the spatial, functional and technical needs. This analysis is also influenced by an awareness of general development of
conceptual alternatives for the building upgrades and expansion. The alternatives were than analyzed and reviewed by the Gallery
Board and staff, and then subjected to a cost/benefit analysis by the consultant. A preferred option was selected and further developed
as the framework for the Mendel's five-year capital plan.

For this capital project, the Mendel hopes to attract significant funding from the private sector and all three levels of government. A
fundraising strategy is under development and a private and public fundraising campaign will be officially launched once the Schematic
Planning Phase has been completed. In order for this project to move forward the City of Saskatoon is being asked to cover the costs
of the Schematic Planning Phase planned for 2004.

Project Description
This project reflects theatre restoration as identified in the Arnott Report.

General Comments
A Theatre Restoration Reserve has been established by adding $1.50 per ticket on all tickets sold relating to theatre events. It is
recommended that this project be completed in one year and the funds be borrowed internally in such a manner that there is no impact
on the mill rate. The borrowed amount will be repaid through the current provision to the Centennial Auditorium Theatre Restoration
Reserve. When the debt is repaid, the provision for the Centennial Auditorium Theatre Restoration Reserve will be reallocated back to
this reserve. The remaining source of funding ($50,000) is the estimated proceeds from the sale of the existing seats.

Project Description
This project provides for the demolition of the former City Electrical Buildings located at Avenue B and 19th Street. The buildings will
be demolished and the land prepared for potential inclusion for sale as a package with the A.L. Cole site.

General Comments
A Phase II Site assessment has been completed on the property and determined that remedial site measures are not required. The
balance of the funding will be used to complete an asbestos assessment in the building and develop a plan for removal in preparation
for demolition. There is a 24-inch water line running under the building, which will have to be relocated, by the Public Works branch of
the Infrastructure Services Department prior to demolition.

Additional Information
For the redevelopment of the A.L. Cole site and adjacent lands:
P1710 (A.L. Cole Site Master Plan) included the 19th Street location in the design plan funded in prior years.
P1617 proposes to move the water main under the former City Electrical Building in 2005 to prepare the building site for development.

Project Description
This project provides for the reapplication of the acrylic protective coating to existing tennis courts to prevent deterioration of the asphalt
base, and reapplication of the court lines.

General Comments
In the 1998 Operating Budget, City Council approved an annual provision to the Civic Buildings Comprehensive Maintenance Reserve

Project Description
This capital project provides for the installation of an electronic document management system throughout the corporation in order to
manage the electronic records of all staff and to decrease the volume and cost of storing and retrieving paper records. The system has
now been implemented in the City Clerk's Office.

General Comments
The project was started in 2000 as a project of the City Clerk's Office. In 2002 the initial phase of the project, which relates mostly to
the requirements of the City Clerk's Office has been completed. In 2004 the project will become a corporate project under management
of the Corporate Information Services Branch. A consultant will be retained to confirm whether the software chosen meets the needs of
the entire corporation. Once the software is chosen, it will become part of the standard operating desktop suite of products available on
all civic computers.

Project Description
This project funds annual preservation programs to rehabilitate high-volume, limited access expressways. The objective is to minimize
the life cycle cost of preserving the expressways, subject to minimum acceptable levels of service. This program has been in place
since 1999.

General Comments
Expressways represent approximately 7% of Saskatoon's roads by surface area. Over the past several years, volumes, loads and the
number of axles (which accelerates deterioration) have been increasing. The structural condition of these roads is being monitored
along with surface condition. The proposed 2004 program was originally based on 1999 surface data and 2001/2002 structural data
and has been updated from 2003 condition rating where this information is available.

Project Description
This project involves removing the asphalt wearing surface and repairing any concrete delaminations, replacing the waterproofing
membrane and resurfacing with a polymer modified asphalt, raising the expansion joint bulkheads to improve ride and reduce impact
loads, and installing lateral restraint to bearings at the abutments.

General Comments
The asphalt wearing surface is in poor condition. The existing deck joints need replacement. There is some evidence of lateral
movement at abutments and the girders are deteriorating.

In 2004 repair includes resurfacing the structure near the abutments, extending the expansion joints and applying permanent pavement
markings.

Prior Budget Approvals                          $40,000

Project Description
This project is an annual preservation program required for 5-10 years to reduce the deferred maintenance liability relating to local
roads. The objective of this program is to carry out restoration of those roads displaying excessive cracking or pavement deformations.
This program has been in place since 1998.

General Comments
This program is intended to reduce the deferred maintenance liability identified when the condition of the local road network was first
evaluated in 1995. The primary focus is on restoration of the roads, returning them to a near-new condition. The proposed 2004
program was originally based on 1999 data but has been updated from 2003 condition rating where this information is available.

 Project Description
This project provided for the purchase of a fully-equiped apparatus and the construction of a standard fire station to be located in
Lakewood Suburban centre.

General Comments
Standard NFPA 1710 establishes benchmark response times of 4 minutes for the "first-in" unit or single unit response and 8 minutes for
all apparatus dispatched to a full first alarm assignment. This standard specifies safe and effective emergency response standards for
all services provided by Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services (SFPS) in the City of Saskatoon. In order to maintain the benchmark
4 and 8-minute response times for Sutherland, Fire Station No. 5 will remain in its existing location.

The Lakewood Suburban Centre location would provide service within the 4-minute first-in response to East College Park, Briarwood,
and Lakeridge in addition to being able to provide the same response into the new growth areas of Rosewood and Brookside. It would
also be strategically placed to contribute to the 8-minute full first alarm response on the east side of the City in compliance with NFPA
1710.

Placement of the fire station is key to the effective and efficient delivery of emergency services to residents in all areas of the City. This
fire station will be a standard fire station, and will be staffed by hiring 20 additional fully equipped firefighters, and by the purchase of a
new fully equipped apparatus.

A report previously tabled at Council on October 6, 2003, dealt with the justification of the need for this fire station.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of fire fighting hose and the purchase of hard hose reel systems.

General Comments
Fire & Protective Services are currently expected to maintain a specified amount of various sizes of fire hose on all fire apparatus. This
is to provide one complete exchange load for each fire apparatus and maintain a small inventory of fire hose so that damaged and
destroyed fire hose can be replaced immediately on site.

Current inventory consists of the following different sizes and types of fire hose:
         • 24 mm single jacket weeping fire hose
         • 45 mm double woven jacket rubber lined fire hose
         • 65 mm double woven jacket rubber lined fire hose

Project Description
This project would see the construction of two new fire stations - one in Northwest Saskatoon, and one in Southwest Saskatoon closer
to the higher risk areas. One of the apparatus and necessary staff from the existing Station #2 would be relocated to the new
southwest location. Dividing the existing Station #2 into two stations would enhance the department's ability to meet the national
standard emergency response times as required by National Fire Protection Association Standard (NFPA).
General Comments
Standard NFPA 1710 establishes benchmark response times of 4 minutes for the "first-in" unit or single unit response and 8 minutes for
all apparatus dispatched to a full first alarm assignment. This standard specifies safe and effective emergency response standards for
all services provided by Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services (SFPS) in the City of Saskatoon.

Northwest Development Area
To meet the future response benchmarks in the new area of Hampton Village we need to construct a fire station between Junor Avenue
and Avenue W on 33rd Street. Two possible sites in this vicinity have been identified and further study is ongoing. This general
location would also provide improved response times to the existing areas of Dundonald, Westview, Hudson Bay Park and the new
area of Hampton Village. This location would also enhance the required 8-minute full first alarm assignment in all areas west of
Warman Road/Wanuskewin Drive and north of 22nd Street.

The estimated cost of land, design and construction of a station in this area would be $1,300,000 plus the purchase of a fire engine and
the staff to operate the station on a continual basis.

Montgomery Place Extension
Studies indicate that the construction of another fire station in the vicinity of Circle Drive and 11th Street would have a positive impact
on response times in the neighbourhoods of Fairhaven, Parkridge, Montgomery Place, Southwest Industrial, and Holiday Park. This
would also complement the 8-minute full first alarm assignments on the entire southwest side of the city in cooperation with existing
Fire Stations No. 1 and 2. Looking to the future, this station would contribute to the 8-minute response benchmark into the Exhibition
and CN Industrial areas, once construction of the south Circle Drive Bridge is completed.

The estimated cost of land, design and construction would be $1,500,000 as it is envisioned that this station would include a training
area and storage space for department reserve apparatus and equipment.

A report previously tabled at Council on October 6, 2003, dealt with the justification of the need for this fire station.

Operating Impact:                     $93,400 per year for each station and equipment on a continual basis.

Project Description
This project stems from an internationally known program called the Compartment Fire Behaviour Training Program, and this training
involves live fire.

General Comments
This project will enhance our operational capabilities in fire fighting with the purchase of a flashover training compartment which will
provide the safest most effective live fire training available to date. This training provides firefighters with the most realistic of fire
conditions taking the fire up to and through flashover. It provides firefighters with knowledge of the signs leading up to flashover and
how to tactically manage the atmosphere to avoid flashover, backdrafts and fire gas ignitions. The benefits of the program will have far
reaching effects not only for the safety of our personnel, but also on how business is conducted.

The system consists of:

         Material for construction of training compartment                $38,000
         Equipment for operation of training compartment                  $17,000

Operating impact            $15,000 Consists of protective gear, waste fuel to burn, and drywall replacement after burn.

Project Description
This project involves the purchase of replacement turnout gear for Fire Fighting staff.

General Comments
A program of replacement of turnout gear has been ongoing within the Fire & Protective Services Department over the past number of
years. Due to the costs involved, the current program will take a number of years to complete and the current issue of gear is
deteriorating faster than it can be replaced through the current program. At this time it has become an Occupational Health and Safety
issue and requires replacement of a large number (103 sets) of turnout gear.

Project Description
This project involves the installation of an elevator car and machinery into the vacant elevator shaft on the North Side of City Hall.

General Comments
Only one elevator was installed when the North Side addition to City Hall was constructed in 1984. Current building use results in the
existing elevator performance to be below the minimum industry standard. City Hall staff and visitors have complained for some time
that the existing elevator is too slow. The elevator machinery manufacturer conducted an analysis of the existing single elevator
installation. It revealed a round trip time of 81 seconds which is considered a poor performance rating.

The existing elevator cannot be modified sufficiently to raise its performance level above the current service level. The only option
available to improve elevator service in the building is to add a second elevator. A spare elevator shaft was included in the original
construction of the North Side to allow for the future addition of a second elevator. The addition of a second elevator to the North side
would cut the elevator grouping's round trip time in half and provide a good overall performance rating.

Project Description
This project involves the repair and modification of the City's 109 play structures located throughout the City's playgrounds to address
safety concerns, and the phased rebuilding or replacement of old structures that cannot be repaired.

General Comments
The budgeted amount for general repairs represents funds to repair and modify various play structures as recommended by Marsh
Canada, a consultant who was retained to assess the condition of all the play structures throughout the City. The replace/rebuilt
component will be allocated on a priority basis to the replacement and rebuilding of specific structures that are heavily utilized but can
no longer be repaired.

Project Description
The project provides for taking corrective action to deal with the hazardous condition of the wooden boardwalk in John Avant Park.

General Comments
The park was developed and built around 1991, and subsequently turned over to the City to be maintained. In the mid 1990's it
became apparent that there was significant vertical movement of the supporting structure of the wooden boardwalk on the south side of
the storm water retention pond.

In 1998, a consultant retained to do a geotechnical investigation reported that the observed distress on the structure was most likely
due to a combination of factors including frost heave and ice jacking of the piles as well as erosion and settlement of the abutment fills.
Measurements taken at the time of maintenance and inspection show that there is significant ongoing movement every year. The
boardwalk slopes anywhere from 7.5 " to 10" from inside to outside over its approximate 8' span.

It is proposed that the existing boardwalk, abutments and concrete pilings be removed in the winter of 2005. In the spring of 2006, the
area will be restored and an asphalt pathway installed a short distance from the lake. The cost to remove the boardwalk and restore the
area complete with an asphalt pathway is estimated at $60,000.

If the decision were to retain the existing boardwalk, the cost to remove and replace it with a more stable structure is estimated at
$150,000. However, given the unstable soil conditions and the likelihood of further maintenance/safety issues in the long term, even
with a new installation, it is recommended that the boardwalk not be replaced.

Project Description
This project consists of the development of a comprehensive policy on the issue of accessibility for the City of Saskatoon.

General Comments
The policy will identify a vision, key strategies to achieve that vision, key stakeholders, and desired outcomes. Such a policy
development will require research, public consultations, preparing an implementation plan and developing a sustainable resource plan
to implement the City's role in pursuing the policy directive.

Currently a number of access-related service initiatives have been undertaken throughout City departments. These include:
    • handicapped access to, and in, facilities, both for the public and employees,
    • provision of special needs transit services,
    • audible pedestrian signals,
    • disabled parking zones,
    • installation of sidewalk ramps,
    • special emphasis on winter sidewalk conditions,
    • an active Employment Equity Program,
    • provision of special needs leisure programs,
    • administering civic grants to external agencies supporting special needs clients,
    • zoning and development bylaws which encourage accessible housing.
A comprehensive policy is required to set desired benchmarks, identify gaps and set priorities to address accessibility issues on a city-
wide basis.

A consultant will be hired to carry out this project.

Project Description
This project provides for the improved physical and electronic security of Information Technology to ensure no unauthorized access to
City applications and data as identified in the Prosser and Associates Security Audit Report.

General Comments
The need to improve the security of the computing environment and protect the City from unauthorized access is based on a growing
concern in the industry. A lot of this concern originates from the events where organizations have had their computing environments
compromised by hackers. It is estimated that electronic attacks are costing North American businesses billions of dollars annually (IT
World article).

The Audit Report recommended the CIS Department improve the physical and electronic security of IT assets and to ensure there is no
unauthorized access to City applications and data. To establish a comprehensive system security architecture across the entire
organization and to provide the foundation for a well controlled, managed and secure environment. Corporate information security
policies, standards and guidelines are required to reduce the risk of unauthorized access and system unavailability.

Objectives:
• Physical security of IT assets
• Logical access to network and applications
• Vulnerability testing
• Intrusion monitoring
• Network access and desktop management


In 2005 it is proposed to purchase hardware which would give the corporation intrusion protection rather than intrusion detection.

Project Description
This project involves the implementation of a time and attendance tracking system for the City of Saskatoon. The current HR/Payroll
system does not have a comprehensive time and attendance-tracking module (T&A). The T&A system will be integrated into the
current HR/Payroll system in order to provide a seamless environment for the capture and reporting of staff attendance and time on the
job.

General Comments
Time and attendance systems address the growing needs of management to schedule and allocate workers' time efficiently. The
system collects time and leave information from a variety of sources and locations. It is a cost effective method of tracking accurate
and consistent format of information; decentralized data capture with centralized control.

Features and benefits include:
    • Flexibility to address the needs of a corporation (up-front for absence or shift scheduling, central entry point for payroll and
        leave information, and after the fact employee absence tracking).
    • Time and leave information can be collected from a variety of sources and locations (intranet, internet, network, card swipe
        system, etc.).
    • Payroll submissions can be routed to corporate payroll, using common interface.
    • Leave data is maintained in the T&A system and used for attendance tracking, using either a standard report delivered by the
        vendor, or developed ad-hoc reports via queries to address specific corporate or departmental needs. (Examples include at-a-
        glace summary, or leave patterns to determine rates for controllable vs. non-controllable absences).
    • Most have built-in workflow or approval process (with audit trail) and interface with applications as needed (corporate payroll,
        general ledger account number validation, etc).

Project Description
City Council has discussed, on a number of occasions, various concepts pertaining to how the City interacts with its customers. The
City of Saskatoon conducted a comprehensive Customer Service Survey and Analysis, which indicated a demand for the delivery of
certain services on-line. The recommendations to pursue on-line services were approved by Senior Management and City Council. It
is acknowledged that customers do not necessarily want to come to City Hall to do their City business or, conversely, when they do
come to City Hall, they do not appreciate that they may have to deal with more than one staff member on the issues they need to have
addressed. The purpose of this project is to enhance the City's Internet site to allow for Electronic Service Delivery (ESD), to both
internal and external customers.

General Comments
In 2004 this project represents funding for a project that will enable the City to provide services on the WEB based on the Electronic
Service Delivery Strategy developed by outside consultants, with direction from the Electronic Service Delivery Committee.

Also, this project will cover funding to purchase WEB Portal Software and implementation services. This Portal will enable a number of
key functions, which include:
          • Personalization
          • Application Integration
          • Business Intelligence
          • Online Payment Engine
          • Search Engine
          • Content Management
          • Security and Administration Tools

Proposed expenditures for 2004 are as follows:

Project Description
This project is an extension of the Integrated Transportation Policy Study in that performance indicators are required in order to
evaluate the extent of the success of the policies. The measures would be used on a regular basis after that time and conducted
through the annual operating budgets. The recent Traffic Control Audit confirmed that these indices are required in order to report on
performance of the City's transportation network.

Project Description
The purpose of this project is to reconstruct some of the soft and hard landscape features that were present at this site prior to slope
failure.

General Comments
The 2004 funding will provide for final grading of the site damaged by the landslip, including placing topsoil over the entire area and
seeding it to dryland grass. It will also complete replacement of the asphalt walkway, and walkway and bridge lighting. The project will
re-install, in accordance with new planting design, the plant material that was present prior to the landslip.

Project Description
This project involves the rehabilitation, geometric improvements and streetscaping of the existing 25th Street, between 1st Avenue and
the University Bridge and the extension of 25th Street from 1st Avenue to Idylwyld Drive as a four lane divided arterial roadway.

The project would be staged dependant upon funding and implementation of the Warehouse Local Area Plan. One stage of this project
involves the rehabilitation of 25th Street from the University Bridge to 1st Avenue. This will include a curb-to-curb reconstruction of the
roadway that expands the width and provides additional left turn storage bays. In addition, this component of the project will be
streetscaped. The original design proposed the widening of the roadway to be taken off the south side, but after public consultations
the design was changed to take equal portions off both sides. This resulted in a cost increase to the project from previous estimates.

The other stage of the project involves extending 25th Street to Idylwyld Drive complete with streetscape treatments.

General Comments
As a major arterial roadway, 25th Street is one of the major roadways leading into and out of the Central Business District. The current
operational capacity of 25th Street during peak hours is at capacity and improvements are required.

The extension of 25th Street to Idylwyld Drive has been identified in the City's future transportation network. This connection will
provide an efficient and safe link to and from Idylwyld Drive and provide access to adjacent land.

Notes
Capital Project No. 1749 (25th Street Streetscape Project) has been combined into this project.

Prior Budget Approvals              $220,000

Project Description
This project involves the preparation of the detailed design and construction for the grade separation of Circle Drive and College Drive.

General Comments
This intersection currently carries 58,200 vehicles per day and is ranked fifth on the highest volume intersections in the City. All four
intersections which currently carry more daily traffic than this intersection are already grade separated.

The funding requirements and phased construction of the interchange is as follow:

                                     Re., Fill Material in 2003

Financing
At it's meeting on March 10, 2003, City Council approved the excavation and hauling of fill material from the Willowgrove
neighbourhood (P1396) to the planned Circle Drive/College Drive interchange location in order to construct the approach
embankments. The General Prepaid Engineering Services Reserve was used as the interim funding source for this work at an
estimated cost of $500,000. The General Prepaid Engineering Services Reserve will be repaid from the other proposed funding
sources for 2006.

Prior Budget Appprovals                                 $750,000
The work in 2003 involved the detailed roadway geometric design, the detailed design of the overpass bridge structure and placement
of embankment fill material for the overpass structure. The construction of an interchange at this location can be phased and
incrementally built. The ultimate interchange will require the relocation of an existing 25 kV distribution line.

Project Description
This project involves the widening of the existing intersection at Circle Drive and 11th Street, including left turn bays, median
construction and upgrading existing railway crossings. As well, widening the existing road surfacing on 11th Street from Avenue W to
Circle Drive including concrete curbing, and the addition of two southbound lanes on Circle Drive from Clancy Drive to 11th Street, will
be completed as part of the intersection improvements.

General Comments
Due to the completion of the Circle Drive and 22nd Street Interchange and the expansion of retail/commercial/industrial properties
within the southwest quadrant of the City (including properties outside of the City limits), the demand on this intersection has increased.
The narrow width of the existing intersection only allows for one lane of traffic in each direction on 11th Street. This causes delays for
through vehicles, some of which proceed through the intersection on the shoulder in a dangerous manner. The existing railway warning
controls crossing 11th Street are too narrow to accommodate roadway widening and will require removal and upgrading. These
improvements will improve the traffic flow through the intersections, increase safety by reducing delay and provide a safer railway
crossing through use of automated gates.

This project will be subject to approval of a request for funding under the Canada Saskatchewan Infrastructure Program.

Project Description
This project will allow for the widening of Circle Drive from Attridge Drive to Millar Avenue including the modification of the existing
structures of Circle Drive bridge using a cantilever design to add a third lane in both directions, including detailed design, structural
girders and concrete decking, barriers, driving surface, lighting, signing and pavement markings.

General Comments
Due to the expansion of the residential properties in the south and east, and the increasing commercial/industrial properties to the
north, the demand of vehicular traffic crossing this bridge is increasing. Currently, morning and afternoon peak periods result in
extremely congested conditions. The addition of a third lane in both directions will allow all traffic to/from Attridge Drive an independent
lane crossing the bridge. This will aid in the reduction to the congestion resulting from the merging of traffic from three to two lanes on
both sides of the bridge. Expansion joints of existing lanes will be replaced in 2006 as described in P1526.

Project Description
Transportation Demand Management (TDM) is a general term for strategies that result in more efficient use of transportation resources.
There are examples of successful TDM programs in use throughout North America (cycling improvements, transit incentives, employee
programs) that may be appropriate for a medium sized city such as Saskatoon. This project proposes to identify potential TDM tools
and the evaluation of the level of success that they could have if implemented in Saskatoon.

Project Description
This project involves the purchase of a new transportation demand forecasting software package, staff training and the eventual
development of a new City Transportation Model using the new software.

General Comments
Currently, a software package known as Tmodel/2® is used to forecast travel demands and analyze the impacts of various land use
and network scenarios. The City's transportation model using Tmodel/2® was developed in 1990 and is still in use today. Since then,
more sophisticated software packages have been developed. Tmodel/2® is an old DOS based software which is now outdated. As
multi-million dollar decisions are being based upon the output of the model, it is crucial that the model be replaced with a newer model
to accurately reflect today's and projected travel demands.

Project Description
This project involves the construction of a grade separation at Circle Drive and Airport Drive.

General Comments
This intersection carries 43,800 vehicles daily and is among the highest volume intersections in the city. Furthermore, of the thirteen
major transportation projects awaiting implementation, this intersection is ranked fourth on the priority list.

Although it is generally accepted that under existing conditions the implementation of this project could be delayed until beyond 2008,
there are development scenarios that could change the implementation date. For instance, the proposed Hampton Village
development on the west side and the corresponding construction of Cynthia Street extension would increase traffic at this location
which would accelerate the need for an interchange.

Project Description
This project deals with eliminating the single point of failure of the Police Services computer system firewall.

General Comments
With the increase in off-site police locations the police service will need to purchase a "cluster" configured backup firewall. Clustering
the firewall means less downtime for all outside connections. Connections such as off-site stations and offices, vehicle laptops, city hall
applications and CPIC will be accessed in a quicker and more protected manner.

Operating Impact
Additional software licensing and hardware maintenance costs               $2,000

Project Description
This project involves the development of a system for the on-going collection and maintenance of commercial and industrial land and
floor-space data, on a City-wide basis.

General Comments
This project will create a database detailing the location, size and use of commercial/industrial land and floor-space in the City of
Saskatoon. The database will remain current through the use of updates from city business processes, including business licensing,
building permits and assessment information. This information will be available to internal and external users through the enhancement
of geographic information systems, providing reliable data for analysis and projections in planning for commercial and industrial
development. This project is funded through the Business License Program, as approved by City Council on February 24, 2003.

Project Description
The use of demographic and development information in policy formulation, program planning and program delivery is essential both
internally and in the larger community. This project enhances this function. The budget reflects a personnel resource to focus on
analysing data, creating the profiles, and developing a web base for the Profiles. The budget also reflects as much as $10,000 per year
in the first two years for additional data.

The Neighbourhood Profiles and related reports have been funded from the operating budget with existing staff and about $6,000 worth
of data purchased each year. The Neighbourhood Profiles have been an important tool for monitoring physical and social development.
Council Committees and several recent audits have called for ongoing monitoring of quality of life, housing and race relations
indicators. Given the increased expectations for monitoring, this project develops a comprehensive indicator model that increases the
information available for decision-making.

The demands of monitoring to evaluate policy and programs require making sense of information. This project will tie together
preliminary work on performance indicators to produce a monitoring and reporting system that describes the strengths and weaknesses
of the community and provide a tool for guiding the community's response to our common challenges. The City's model of indicators
monitors nine features of community life from demographics to employment, education to land use at the neighbourhood level. In
addition, the City of Saskatoon is a partner in the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Quality of Life Reporting System that monitors
similar features of community life for Saskatoon and 20 other Canadian Municipalities. Together these indicators show us that in the
late 1990's Saskatoon's strengths were our economy, affordability and community participation and our weakness were in crime, justice
and health. At the local level, indicators map neighbourhoods most in need. This project will update these indicators and focus
reporting on policy and program areas of concern to city council.

The need for monitoring and evidence based decision-making is shared with other community partners. Collaboration of community
partners has highlighted the need for integrated data and analysis tools, analytical resources and a common framework for monitoring
community status and the impact of policy and programs. Currently, individual partners are resourcing in house analysis and sharing
data but are not benefiting from a comprehensive analysis of indicators and monitoring. This project will combine resources with
partners such as the Saskatoon Health Region to provide analyses that benefit the Community as a whole.

The research and analyses generated through this project will result in the enhanced Neighbourhood Profiles featuring analysis of local
quality of life trends and will be shared with partners and the public through a web based application. Partners and the public will be
able to view information on the city and its people, download and print this information in text, graphics and maps. This enhances the
community's ability to acquire and use information for community and economic development initiatives. Finally, the project will create a
comprehensive monitoring system and report to support policy and spending decisions on public policy.

Project 2031 (Demographic Search Tool) is now combined with this project.

     • West Industrial

General Comments
In November 2002, City Council directed Administration "to prepare future budgets for these resources in a manner which reduces
ongoing request from the Reserve for Capital Expenditures in an amount of $210,000 ($60,000 from project No. 1852 and $150,000
from project No. 2034) to an ongoing request from general revenue at the rate of $60,000 per year starting in Budget year 2004"
(recommendation 7, File No. PL4110-10). This process has started with a $60,000 transfer from project No. 1852 for 2004.

Seven Local Area Plans have been adopted by City Council since 1998. Local Area Plans contain recommendations that are intended
to improve a local neighbourhood over the medium to long term. Each Local Area Plan requires resources, usually over and above
normal operating resources, to fulfill the recommendations of each Local Area Plan.

Implementation is important to sustain and improve conditions within Saskatoon's core neighbourhoods and generate greater
confidence amongst residents in the future of these important areas of Saskatoon.

Project Description
The Corporation is adopting a new software standard for GIS. The Research & Information Resource Centre Section of the City
Planning Branch requires the purchase of software licenses for professional and technical staff in order to continue providing mapping
services within the GIS environment. The new software standard and data handling requirements necessitate computer upgrades.

This project also includes the upgrade of work surfaces for two staff.

General Comments
The Research & Information Resources Centre Section of the City Planning Branch develops, analyzes and maintains data in support
of Corporate, public and Departmental planning and community development initiatives. This role includes processing graphic data for
map products, maintaining the Corporate site database and producing a variety of map based graphic products for Corporate and
public clients. The products required by business processes such as land development and GIS development extend the current
software and hardware compliment of the section to the limit.

Project Description
This project involves repairs to surface drainage followed by the reconstruction of the complete road surface on Edson Street between
Portage and Jasper Avenues as well as a section of Portage Avenue and a section of Jasper Avenue.

General Comments
The road surface of Edson Street between Portage and Jasper Avenue is in poor overall condition. Poor surface drainage, a high
water table and hearvy truck traffic have caused an 80% structural failure of which 30% has "blown out". As well, a section of Portage
Avenue and a portion of Melville Street have failed completely as a result of the increased trucking in this industrial area. Numerous
culverts were not properly installed and ditch elevations are not to a proper grade to enable adequate surface drainage.

Project Description
The scope of this project expanded to include public consultation to update the Forestry Farm Park and Zoo Master plan. City Council
approved the Forestry Farm Park and Zoo Program Plan in 1989. Since the completion of this plan the complexity of usage issues has
increased and interest in providing programs and services in the park by stakeholder interest groups has resulted in the emergence of
special events, new programs, and re-adaptive use of the Superintendent's Residence as a commercial venture. Additionally, since the
site is a National Historic Site (approved in 1994), the City and Parks Canada have signed a Commemorative Integrity Statement. This
agreement recognizes the City needs to take into account all the resources and uses of the site in its planning and operational
decisions and that heritage objectives will be reflected in future planning. An updated program plan is required to provide a
comprehensive framework for future development of an integrated site. The key elements will require a consultant be contracted to
conduct substantial public consultation and be responsible to:
      • Survey key stakeholder groups to identify specific concerns or issues, services provided and future vision as a provider of
          service at the site;
      • Organize and facilitate public meetings to obtain input from the community and interest groups building upon the common
          vision which will now include the commemorative integrity statement;
      • Integrate the stakeholder service plans (recreation, heritage, botanical, and zoological) into a final program plan;
      • Build consensus and integrate recreation, historical, botanical and zoological themes into an integrated program plan that
          provides a shared vision for the site by all the stakeholders. The plan will be used to prepare the concept plan and master
          plan for future development of the site;
      • Identify adaptive re-use of the bunkhouse;
      • Ensure the program plan and concept plan reflects the Commemorative Integrity Statement and the Historic Landscape
          survey and study; and
      • Define conservation and presentation plan that details specific actions.

General Comments
Starting in 2005, subject to finalization of the Master Plan and funding approval, implementation will include such things as design and
construction of a new parking lot, visitor entrance to the zoo and admission booth.

Project 2049 (Forestry Farm Park & Zoo Parking Lot) is now combined with this project.

Project Description
This project involves the identification of significant heritage buildings, structures and properties in Saskatoon, including City-owned
properties, in accordance with recognized standards. In consultation with the respective property owners, these properties will then be
reviewed for appropriate actions, including possible designation as municipal heritage property, placement on the heritage holding
bylaw, or other methods of conservation and/or recognition.

General Comments
A general scanning of significant heritage properties in the City was last undertaken about 25 years ago. This resulted in Bylaw 6770,
the City's heritage "Holding Bylaw", which identified 42 properties in the City that are thought to have heritage merit. Demolition of
these properties is subject to City Council review. In anticipation of the City's Centenary in 2006 and emerging heritage programs from
senior levels of government, a comprehensive review of important heritage properties is considered appropriate at this time.

This project will develop updated criteria for the identification of significant heritage properties based on nationally recognized
standards. The criteria will be applied to the City as a whole to provide a current list of significant heritage properties, including a re-
evaluation of the properties now listed in the Holding Bylaw. An action plan will be developed to determine if these properties are best
suited for designation as municipal heritage property, for placement in the Holding Bylaw, or other methods of conservation or
interpretation. Appropriate consultation with property owners, the heritage community and the general public will be included.

The action plan would be intended for implementation by the Administration in due course.

Project Description
This project provides for enhanced security measures for access to and to communicate between internal, external and national police
information systems.

General Comments
The purpose of this project is to adopt the national standards in user authentication and information access and communication within
the police community and their new partners. This will become a mandatory requirement of the CPIC Renewal project and the
Canadian Public Service Information Network (CPSIN).

It is expected the RCMP will become the certificate authority of choice for the Saskatoon Police Service. This will involve becoming a
member of their Public/Private Key Infrastructure (PKI) which will include strong user authentication (using an assigned security device)
and secured communications (using Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and data encryption techniques).

Operating Impact
Support and replacement of the user security devices                     $5,000

Project Description
This project provides for remote access using handheld wireless devices.

General Comments
Officers on foot or bike patrol duties presently have no computer access. Handheld computer devices would provide such access,
allowing Officers to be out within the community rather than continuously attending police vehicles or in the police station to utilize
computer information systems. This figure is based on $2,500 per unit and quantities of 15 units.

Operating Impact
Usage agreements and repair of hardware and license costs                  $10,000

Project Description
This project provides for the technology to track the movement of police vehicles, display them on a Communication Centre map and
retain information for future possible analysis.

General Comments
The Geographic Positioning System (GPS) will capture the location coordinate of the vehicle on an ongoing basis. The coordinate will
be fed to in-car notebook for uploading to our host computer over the radio network. The host computer will store this information in the
police data for future possible analysis and send the latest vehicle coordinate on to the Communication's map server for vehicle display
on a fleet wall map.

Not only does this provide a higher degree of officer safety, but also data analysis in the case of high speed chase re-creation, follow-
up on public complaints, etc.

On the in-car notebook, the system would be able to display on an electronic city map, the position of the vehicle in relation to the
address calling for service on a dispatch.

Project Description
This project provides for the scheduled replacement of existing lift-equipped buses used in the delivery of Special Needs
Transportation.

General Comments
The life expectancy of the lift-equipped buses is between five (5) and seven (7) years depending on the preventive maintenance
schedule, hours of running time, and kilometers operated. A replacement plan has been set up for the buses based on their life
expectancy. In order to achieve the extended life above five years (5), the vehicles will be staged for service to ensure hours and
kilometers are spread out and that the older and higher mileage vehicles are sold or used as back up.

Other funding consists of the City making application for cost sharing under the Provincial Transit for Disabled Fund (TDF).

Special Note
This project is subject to operating budget approval and establishment of a SNT Replacement Reserve provision.

Project Description
This Project provides for the replacement of all bus seats with high quality seats over a 3-year period.

General Comments
These high quality seats are built for the severe wear and tear, which the bus and the operator put on them. The quality of these new
seats would allow saving on maintenance costs which are becoming very costly to maintain and some of the repair parts are hard to
obtain due to obsolescence. The new seats are also ergonomically friendly and will aid in the prevention of back problems which will
result in less workers' compensation claims.

The plan is to replace 25 seats per year at an estimated cost of $60,000 for the next three years. In three years 85% of the seats for
the entire bus fleet will be replaced with the balance to be replaced when new buses are purchased.

Project Description
This project involves purchasing and implementing software tools and products designed to increase productivity, accurateness and
accountability of each respective area of Transit Planning and Scheduling, Customer Service and Operations.

General Comments
Purchase and implementation of software tools and products designed to increase productivity, accurateness and accountability of
each respective area of Transit Planning and Scheduling, Customer Service and Operations.

The current runcutting method consisting of a combination of a DOS based program and manual manipulation to produce routing and
operator signups will be replaced in order to produce accurate routing and schedules.

The current customer route information system, Teleride, will be replaced with an information system that draws route, run and stop
information directly from a runcutting, routing and scheduling system providing up-to-date route schedule information, accurate next bus
information and general, route-specific or stop-specific service bulletins to the public.

Transit planning software will be implemented to easily identify more efficient vehicle and staff deployment, allow scenario modeling
and trend analysis reducing costly changes, ridership collection and analysis, forecasting and longe-range transit planning.

All the information delivery channels: the information, planning and dispatch operator bidding sytems must rely on the same backend
runcutting/routing/scheduling system to guarantee consistency and accuracy of all transit related information.

The implementation of an operator signup, dispatch and timekeeping software, will be dependent on review of the
Dispatch/Payroll/Charter Team and appropriate interface development between the above software components and the internal
development of the Payroll/Dispatch/Charter system.

Transit Services purchased and implemented Trapeze PASS, a demand responsive scheduling software for its Para transit service
in 2002, which already houses and utilizes the City of Saskatoon base map. The experience with Trapeze has been very positive
throughout implementation, training and support of the PASS product.

Project Description
During 1998, City Council approved the Golf Course Program value-for-money audit recommendation that management develop a
long-term capital plan with sufficient cash flow to fund and finance capital replacement expenditures for the three municipal golf courses
(Holiday Park, Silverwood and Wildwood golf courses). In response to the audit recommendations, in March 2002 City Council
approved the Golf Course Capital Reserve (Bylaw No. 8110). The purpose of the reserve is to finance long-term capital plans that
included replacement of equipment and vehicles, and expansion and redevelopment of course facilities and services.

General Comments
The capital projects for 2004 are:

Irrigation System at Wildwood Golf Course
It is anticipated the design of a comprehensive irrigation system at Wildwood Golf Course will be completed in 2003 ($50,000 prior
year's approval). A new system will replace the existing system, which has proven to be inadequate. An enhanced irrigation system
will improve the condition of the course and increase customer satisfaction.

New Entrance off Fletcher Road at Holiday Park Golf Course
This project involves the relocation of Holiday Park Golf Course's entrance off Fletcher Road. In addition to the main roadway being in
desperate need of repair, problems such as traffic congestion and safety issues have been raised. During the summer, this section of
road has a high volume of traffic from golfers and ball players. It has been determined to relocate the entrance to the golf course based
on ongoing upgrades and it's long-term plan. The long-term plan includes the construction of a new clubhouse facility, which based on

its preliminary design, would make an entrance road off of Fletcher Road more accessible and convenient for golf course patrons.

Asphalt Parking Lots at Holiday Park, Silverwood and Wildwood Golf Courses
This project involves the design, construction, asphalting and line painting of the parking lots, which are currently gravelled. The
enhanced parking lots would be more aesthetically pleasing, provide a better parking surface definition and improve service to the high
volume of golf course patrons.

Special Note
Funding for the irrigation system at the Wildwood Golf Course is a productivity improvement loan, subject to City Council's approval in
early 2004. The loan will be repaid through a $2.00 green fee premium charged to the adult base.

Project Description
This project involves the upgrading and development of Sportsfields to address current and future programming needs for soccer,
softball/slo-pitch and baseball facilities. The project will assist in the development of three Sportsfields.

General Comments
As part of a long-term development program focusing on the continued redevelopment of the City's Sportsfields, staff are working in
conjunction with the Sportsfields Planning Committee (consisting of representatives from Sportsfields user groups) to identify both
immediate and long-term facility development priorities and requirements, including location. The cost estimate to construct a
sportsfield is $135,000 per field which includes design. This project will require financial contribution from the sportsfield user group.
The financial contribution will be the subject of further discussion with the participating groups.

sewer and storm drainage lines) serving the five City-operated indoor rinks, the Saskatoon Zoo and Forestry Farm Park, and the
various facilities within the Gordon Howe Complex. Consultant services are required to inspect and determine the remaining life span
of the utility infrastructure and to provide cost estimates for replacing/upgrading the existing services.

The five City-operated indoor rinks, the Saskatoon Zoo and Forestry Farm Park, and various facilities within the Gordon Howe Complex
and related utility services are aging. Kinsmen Arena was opened in 1961and is the oldest of the City-operated rinks. A number of
facilities located in the Gordon Howe Complex were first developed as early as 1960. A section of the water line from Avenue P
(located at the north end of the field at Gordon Howe Bowl) serving the Holiday Park Golf Course has experienced a number of breaks
over the last few years. The Saskatoon Zoo has also experienced several breaks this fall.

Repair/replacement costs for underground utility services located within the facility's property line do not qualify for funding under the
Civic Building Major Repair Reserve. Repair costs are the responsibility of the respective individual facilities. Currently there is no
provision to fund these expenses.

Project Description
This project involves the demolition of the existing cave and replacement with a new gunite shelter and new interior landscaping for the
eagles. Additional funds through the 2004 capital project will allow for the completion of Phase 1 of the project, which is the
construction of the cliff. Phase 2 consists of the completion of the stream and pond within the enclosure and upgrading of the attached
isolation area.

General Comments
A project estimate of $35,000 was provided by an external consultant based on the program specifications identified for the
redevelopment of the interior of the eagle enclosure. During 2003 a more detailed concept design for the program specifications was
prepared. At the detail design stage the estimate increased to $78,000. The original estimate did not include the electrical cost of
$5,000.

The original estimated cost of $35,000 was funded through the Forestry Farm Park Development Reserve.

Project Description
This project involves the construction of a year-round (winterized) washroom facility located in the vicinity of the Mendel Art Gallery and
Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival facility. A core washroom facility would serve the needs of riverbank pedestrian traffic (i.e.
walkers, runners, bird watchers) and cross-country skiers during the winter season. The core washroom facility will have male, female,
and family washroom areas. The facility could be built in proximity of a year-round permanent facility being explored with stakeholders
(i.e. Nordic Ski club and Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival) that would allow for a seasonal washroom add-on in response to
anticipated increased demand during the summer. There appears to be adequate land space to build a facility (core and add-on) above
the 1-500 year flood elevation as required by City zoning standards.

General Comments
A 714 square foot year-round core facility contains one male and two female stalls and the family washroom have one stall that permits
access by either male or female adult with children. The cost for the core facility is estimated at $217,000.

The 325 square foot add-on seasonal facility to accommodate Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival use contains three female
and two male stalls costing $86,700. This portion contains two adjoining areas on either side of the core facility and is capable of partial
winter shutdown to reduce operating costs. Interested stakeholders and partners would fund these add-on seasonal washrooms.

Project Description
This project involves an assessment of the Mechanical System at the Saskatoon Field House.

General Comments
The Saskatoon Field House was built as part of the Canada Summer Games Legacy in 1979. The facility served as a venue for track
and field during the Summer Games and continues to meet the competitive program needs of that sport. The facility has evolved from
a competitive special use track and field/sporting venue to a multi-use sport and physical fitness/wellness venue that serve the
competitive sport participant, general public and people with health conditions. The City of Saskatoon's strategic alliance with
Saskatoon Regional Health (1995) and In Motion Health Promotion Strategy (1999) have resulted in the Saskatoon Field House serving
as a primary program delivery location where preventative and rehabilitative fitness/wellness programs are provided to the general
public and people with existing health conditions.

The significant changes in use of the Saskatoon Field House has resulted in the need to examine air standards required for each
program area and to identify economical mechanical methods to comply with these needs. The mechanical system's ability to supply
sufficient quantity and quality of air should be based on the participant numbers, the health condition of the participants, and the space
function. Because this facility has experienced, and will continue to experience, programming changes and growth in participant use,
there is a need to do an assessment of the total mechanical HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning) system.

This assessment will require expertise from a number of areas and will include air balance testing, temperature monitoring, air quality
testing, and an assessment of mechanical system's ability to meet the requirements. The assessment will make recommendations on
the changes required to the HVAC system to meet current and projected programming needs.

Project Description
This project provides for 10 additional notebooks and mounts/docking stations to outfit the Community Liaison Officers (CLO's), patrol
spares and additions to the police vehicle pool.

General Comments
Community Liaison Officers require an in-car notebook system to assist in Community Problem-Solving and in focused policing issues
within their assigned areas.

Similar to the patrol units, these notebooks are expected to add efficiencies to the CLO duties by enabling them to access police
information and communicate electronically while out in the community.

This project began in 2003 and will be completed in 2004.

Prior Budget Approvals              $25,000 two notebooks purchased

Operating Impact
Additional CDPD radio charges, software licensing and hardware maintenance costs: $3,000 in 2003; $8,200 in 2004.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of police radio equipment.

General Comments
As the radio fleet ages and warranties and their extensions expire, replacements are required. This plan assumes a 7 year warrantied
period followed by an additional year off warranty before an unacceptable level of failure is expected to begin to occur. It allows for an
early replacement of 10% of expiring stock, (in the eighth year of that stock's service), to buffer premature fleet failures.

The roll over of the radio fleet is best done on a rotating basis rather than a wholesale change of stock. This allows time for
programming and installation and spreads out the user learning curve. For example the Mobile fleet will undergo a major change
beginning in 2005 with the majority being renewed in 2006. The Portable fleet will begin renewal in 2007 with another major inventory
replacement expected to occur in 2009.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of the dispatch consul furniture.

General Comments
The present dispatch furniture was introduced in 2000 to accommodate the needs at that time which involved three monitors and
computers to operate the CAD and Radio system. The needs have grown beyond the capabilities of this furniture as it can not hold all
of the present equipment. The two issues are space for needed equipment and the weight of this equipment.

Project Description
This project will allow for the Backup Explosives Disposal Technician to be adequately equipped to provide support to the Primary
Explosives Technician in the event of an incident. The project will also allow funds to be in place for the replacement of the current
Primary Bomb Suit which was purchased in 2001 and has a serviceable life of 7 years.

General Comments
Members of the Explosives Disposal Unit are the designated responders to high risk incidents involving improvised explosives devices
or suspicious packages. These members are able to respond to these incidents with a higher degree of safety than the regular patrol
members because of their special training and equipment.

Presently only one serviceable bomb suit is available for use. For any incident requiring a backup technician at the immediate scene or
in the event of a rescue of the primary technician there is no serviceable suit available.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement purchase of a Remote Mobile Investigator to aid in police investigation and other situations
where there may be a potential danger to police and other emergency personnel.

General Comments
The remote Mobile Investigator (RMI) is a six-wheeled w/wo track electrical powered piece of equipment. It is remote controlled and
equipped with cameras allowing the operator to stay out of harm's way while the RMI can go into a building, up or down stairs, and
approach a suspect or suspicious package with no danger to anyone.

It is equipped with a two-way intercom allowing the operator to speak and hear a suspect. It is also equipped with various telescopic
arms and claw hands capable of lifting 80 kg and applying pressures of 9 - 27 kg. This allows it to pickup and deal with suspicious
packages.

Its major advantage is the ability to approach a package, move it to a safe position, and destroy it with a water discharge. This unit
would not only benefit the Explosive Disposal Unit, but would also benefit the following:
                                  • Arson & Fire Detail
                                  • Emergency situations involving hazardous goods
                                  • Hostage incidents
                                  • Entry of unstable buildings after an explosion, etc.

The presently utilized Police Mobile Investigator was a prototype purchased in 1997. Since the acquisition of this unit it has been
returned to the inventor for major overhauls on several occasions. Costs associated to repair since delivery is in excess of $18,000.

Even with the service work the unit does not function in a reliable manner thus jeopardizing the safety of Officers utilizing it. Since
delivery this unit has not completed a single mission training or operation with out some type of breakdown.

The proposed unit for replacement has been developed by a well-known manufacturer of RMI's and is presently utilized by most major
centers. The unit has been found to be reliable and easily maintained by those agencies.

The present unit is usable but not reliable. The possibility of selling of this unit to another police agency is questionable due to the
reliability issue. The possibility of sale to other than police is unknown.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of the firearms in the marked vehicles in the Policing Services Division and the training of
members in the use of these firearms.

General Comments
Members of the Policing Services Division are the uniformed first responders to calls for service from the public. The issuing of modern
weapons to replace the presently issued police shotgun will reduce the liability of the officer and the Saskatoon Police Service. The
Policing Services Division is responsible for responding to emergency calls for service. These people are the first responders to
serious calls, which may include calls involving firearms and weapons.

Presently the Policing Services Division marked cars are equipped with in-car pump action shotgun. The majority of the shotguns are
twenty years old with ammunition that has pellets that spread in a funnel type pattern.

The Saskatoon Police Service is looking at replacing these present firearms with a more suitable firearm for an urban setting. New
advances in ammunition and firearm technology are allowing for the development of single shot weapons that are a viable alternative to
the shotgun. The use of a single shot firearm would complement the developing policy of the S.P.S. on Rapid Intervention-Immediate
Deployment. This Policy is to deal with situations such as the Columbine High School shootings. Due to the fact that the S.P.S.
maintains only a part-time ERT team, uniformed Officers are first on the scene. By expanding their choice of defensive weapons with a
modern, technologically advanced option will increase the potential to successfully resolve a dangerous incident while limiting liability.

Project estimates include the purchase of 34 firearms, vehicle mounts and training ammunition.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of Identification Section cameras.

General Comments
The cameras presently in use in the Identification Section are wearing out and are becoming more susceptible to breakdown. Repairs
are costly and increasingly difficult since the models used were first put on the market in 1990 and are now obsolete. It is a reasonable
quality camera but was designed for amateur use and not intended for specialized police use.

This project proposes the purchase of 10 replacement cameras. The recommended models are more rugged, lightweight, produce a
higher quality photograph and are compatible with existing flash units.

Project Description
This project provides for the supply of 34 tasers for Policing Services members.

General Comments
Members of the Policing Services Division are the uniformed, first responders to calls for service from the public. The availability of 34
tasers, accessible in the patrol vehicle would allow police members a less than lethal use of force option. Many times, officers are
faced with people who are mentally unstable, deranged, hostile or violent. The availability of the taser could bring such situations to a
safe conclusion.

Reasons for the purchase of these items:
•      Less than lethal force option
•      Total incapacitation
•      Officer and public safety

The Taser is a less than lethal use of force option in dealing with people who are a risk to themselves, others and the police. Presently
members are equipped with their expandable baton, pepper spray and their sidearm. A baton requires that members must be in close
contact with the suspect in order to deliver the required blows.

Pepper spray not only requires close contact (five to seven feet) but does not effectively stop all people. The taser has a range of 21
feet and of 400 people tested in one study, 95.55% were totally incapacitated. Due to a number of factors, our present use of force
options do not have the same success rates of total incapacitation. This use of force has been shown to be an effective tool to protect
the public and police officers from those who would do others harm.

Project estimates include the purchase of tasers, projectile consumables and holsters.

Operating Impact
Periodic maintenance of tasers, replacement of compressed nitrogen cartridge.

Project Description
This project provides for the installation of an in-car video system in police vehicles.

General Comments
Not unlike Geographic Positioning System (GPS), in-car video provides one more source of officer safety and accountability.

Initial year is for the request for proposal (RFP) and vendor solution(s) field evaluation phase, capacity planning and video management
processing functional requirements. Projections are based on $10,000 per vehicle with possible dual camera split screen (front & back)
feed.

Capabilities of the system include archiving information by date, time, unit, and officer. Multi-year storage retention, retrieval, and
reproduction will all be possible. The final phase of project will deal with Saskatoon Information Management System (SIMS)
integration.

Operating Impact
The operating budget is estimated to increase by $150,000 per year for equipment support, supplies (in-car - removable disc storage &
in-house - disc and tape media & storage), software licensing and technical & operations support staff.

Project Description
This project provides a phased approach to meeting the current space requirements of the Saskatoon Police Service as outlined in the
10-year Police Facilities Plan completed by Carruthers Shaw and Partners Limited, Architects, in 2002.
General Comments
The Consultant indicates in their report that the existing Headquarters buildings will require substantial remediation and expansion if it is
to meet the current needs of the Saskatoon Police Services.

 2004 funds would be used to design the necessary leasehold improvements in the Post Office building needed to accommodate
temporary space until the Phase 2 main facility renovation is complete.

In 2005, the leasehold improvements would be completed as well as the design and construction of the Phase 2 main facility
renovations.

Operating Impact
It is estimated that operating costs (lease costs, cleaning, etc.) will increase by approximately $52,000 per year related to temporary
leased space.

Project Description
This project includes the design and construction of comprehensive streetscape projects within the Downtown, Broadway, and
Riversdale Business Improvement Districts. The priority of projects over the next number of years will be determined by the need to
coordinate streetscape projects with underground utility replacement programs, the South Downtown Riverbank development, the
development of Block 146 and with opportunities to create more on-street parking facilities and increase parking revenues, and improve
pedestrian and vehicular safety.

Streetscape component of projects previously reported in project numbers 1140, 1736, 1739 and 1746 have been combined into this
project.

Project Description
Through the Local Area Planning process and regular contract with other neighbourhoods, safety has been identified as a high priority.
This project funds Risk Assessments and Safety Audits based on the principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
(CPTED) in identified neighbourhoods.

General Comments
CPTED is a tool available to the City of Saskatoon that addresses crime prevention and citizen's perceptions of their safety in a holistic
manner. Engaging residents of the neighbourhood in procedures of Risk Assessment and Safety Audits often leads to practical
solutions for problems in neighbourhoods, parks and business districts.

CPTED principles are evolving as a key strategy to address neighbourhood safety using issue identification, problem solving, solution
generation and partnerships involving the community, Saskatoon Police Services, other civic departments, Business Improvements
(BIDs), and external stakeholders. These partnerships are crucial to attaining a sustainable and effective solution to safety issues in an
area.

Six of the approved Local Area Plans recommend some level of application of CPTED principles through:
     • Risk Assessments of the neighbourhood/area;
     • Safety Audits of specific areas in a neighbourhood;
     • Safety issue identification;
     • Community participation; and
     • Implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of CPTED recommendations.

This process was started in 2003 through an application of reallocated funds in project 1852 (Nhbrhd Study/Local Area Plan) to conduct
a safety audit of the Pleasant Hill neighbourhood, approved by City Council January 6, 2003.

Project Description
This project provides for the replacement of the obsolete Risk Management database and the Risk Management computers which run
the database.

General Comments
The existing Risk Management database was installed in the late 1980's and is now obsolete. This database contains all of the City''s
information on claims and is used extensively to provide information to other Departments on problem areas of their operations,
particularly regarding water and sewer main breaks. The Risk Management computers which run the software are also outdated and
must be replaced.

The proposed budget includes:
        Software                    $45,000
        Hardware                      15,000

         Total                      $60,000

Operating Budget Impact
The operating budget will increase by $1,500 per year starting in 2005 to cover annual maintenance and support from the vendor.
