Well, yet another sale and occupancy in Pleasant Hill Village in March and ongoing behind-the-scenes work are contributing to the progress of this exciting and unique project!
When Spring finally does arrive, we will see the construction taking place on the new cul-de-sacs at Columbian Place and 19th St. W. There is a Saskatoon Light and Power pole that will be relocated to accommodate the cul-de-sac at Columbian Place, and the portion of the fence that is parallel to Columbian Place (formerly Ave O) will be moved back, to be flush with the seniors' building, again to accommodate the new cul-de-sac.
Also in Spring/ Summer this year, we will see lots of progress on the expansion and enhancement of the Grace Adam Park and the installation of a neighbourhood entrance sign at Avenue P, just north of the railway tracks. This will be an attractive feature announcing entry to a residential neighbourhood and the sign will incorporate the red bricks that were purposely salvaged from the old St. Mary's school building.
New decks will be installed at the Pleasant Hill Solar Village and create functional private space for residents to enjoy the view of the park and have friends over for a barbeque. These decks will go over the swale to provide a more usable and attractive private yard for residents in the north/ south building, backing Columbian Place.
Let us hope that the snow melts and the ground thaws soon! We have lots of work to do! Watch this space :-)
