Will the Moose Jaw Warriors have a new facility use agreement with the City of Moose Jaw to continue to play at the Moose Jaw Events Centre?

We could find out tonight as the agreement, which is set to expire this year, is on city council's agenda.

Also on the agenda is the subdivision of the zero block of River Street West. This is the city's final step in purchasing back the westerly 150 feet of River Street West. The subdivision would return the street back to the legal right-of-way. The plan will eventually be the development of an All-Suites Hilton Tapestry Collection Hotel.

An update on the city's application for funding under the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's Housing Accelerator Fund program is expected. The city submitted plans that included 11 initiatives and an additional 779 units over the next three years.

City administration will ask for a Noise Bylaw exemption to allow construction crews to work between 5 a.m. and midnight. The current bylaw does not permit construction noise before 7 a.m. or after 10 p.m. The locations of the exemptions would be as follows:

  • Main Street North southbound lane from Manitoba Street East to River Street East
  • Main Street North northbound lane from Fairford Street to Manitoba Street East
  • Main Street North from MacDonald Street to Saskatchewan Street East
  • Main Street North near City Hall
  • Thatcher Drive from Grace Street to 16th Avenue Northwest
  • Thatcher Drive southside lane from the East Service Road to Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation driveway entrance
  • River Street East from Main Street North to First Avenue Northeast.

City administration is seeking the exemption to reduce the impact due to the construction.

Finally, city council will receive an update on the city's Climate Action Plan. The plan aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 per cent by 2025 and 45 per cent by 2030 and eliminate 100 per cent of water loss within all municipal buildings.
