Public Works Week is May 21 to 27

It’s that time of year again when we recognize and celebrate the efforts and expertise of Public Works professionals. We’re ramping up for Public Works Week from May 21 to 27, and the theme for this year is Public Works Connects Us.

It’s also that time of year when we invite residents to visit the South Operations Centre for the fourth annual Show and Shine event. Join us on May 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to see public works equipment firsthand and meet the professionals that form the backbone of our communities.

Show and Shine Event: May 24

Join us on May 24 to see Public Works equipment firsthand and meet the professionals that form the backbone of our communities. Residents are invited to see shiny maintenance equipment up close and personal.

Public Works, Transit, Environmental Services and Regional Emergency Services staff will be on hand to demonstrate equipment, answer questions and explain services like plowing and street sweeping.

When: Wednesday, May 24, 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Where: South Operations Centre, 140 Saprae Creek Trail

Everyone is welcome, including parents, children and school groups. We’ll be showcasing maintenance equipment including snow plows, refuse and recycling trucks, buses, loaders, graders, sweepers, and fire trucks. There will also be goodie bags for kids, a live radio broadcast by Mix 103.7 and much more.

Need a ride to the event?

Residents can catch the Special 66 bus for direct service to the South Operations Centre. The Special 66 bus leaves the Jubilee Centre terminal at quarter to and quarter after the hour from 8:45 a.m. – 5:15 p.m., and leaves the South Operations Centre to downtown every half hour on the hour.

National Public Works Week

Since 1960, public works teams from across North America have been recognizing Public Works Week as a means of celebrating public works and educating people about the importance of public works for everyone, including safety, planning, building, managing and operating our communities and keeping residents connected.
