Saskatoon is continuing to grow and change, and there are challenges and opportunities that go along with this. We cannot continue to use 20th-century solutions for 21st-century problems, but we instead must innovate to work toward the future prosperity and strength of Saskatoon. We cannot shy away from difficult conversations, but we instead must address the issues that our community is facing head on with the view to serving the public good. We cannot sit by and watch the world change around us, but we must help to lead that change to ensure that Saskatoon is a city where all people have the opportunity to succeed.
Addressing these challenges and opportunities means working collaboratively within the community and empowering all members of City Council to take leadership roles in 10 priority areas. It involves recognizing the many forms of community building that happen daily in Saskatoon to improve Saskatoon’s future and create a more inclusive community. The following initiatives, some of which are connected to Council’s 10 priority areas, represent ways that Mayor Clark is working with different organizations and people to strengthen our city.
