2023 Capital Construction Projects 

Project Name



Additional Information

2023 Airport Runway & Taxiway MaintenanceThis project includes repairing approximately 20 kilometres of transverse and longitudinal cracks in the asphalt runway and taxiway.

Without these critical repairs, the condition of the runway and taxiway will continue to degrade and become a major safety hazard for the aircrafts using the facility. Addressing the concern will minimize further degeneration and extend the lifespan of both the taxiway and runway and improve the safety and operations of Miller Airport.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Saskatchewan's Community Airport Partnership (CAP) program.

Plans & Studies 




Target Completion

Sanitary Sewer Master Plan

In 2022, the City hired Catterall & Wright Consulting Engineers to complete a comprehensive study on the City's sanitary sewer network. Infrastructure master plans are critical planning documents used by cities to identify existing infrastructure improvements required to maintain levels of services as well as the infrastructure required to support growth and development.


The goals of this study are to:  

  • Create a Sanitary Sewer Model for the existing sanitary collection system including lift stations.  
  • Identify existing problem areas in the City and review opportunities to reduce the number of lift stations in the City.  
  • review the existing sewage lagoon facility and provide comment on its operation, condition, and available capacity.  
  • Create a Sanitary Sewer Master Plan outlining sanitary improvement priorities in the City to accommodate new development and improve existing operations.

Maude Burke Park Redesign Project

Maude Burke Park is an urban park located on the south side of Melfort on Broadway Avenue South.  This park and playground is a very popular community park that needs to be updated in order to keep meeting community needs.  The City of Melfort is seeking a park design that maximizes the small urban space with multiple play stations including the splash pad.

The City of Melfort has hired Scatliff+Miller+Murray, a qualified consulting firm with experience in the field of park development and playground design, to produce a concept plan and report outlining the options to refresh the amenities at Maude Burke Park. This report will serve as a guiding document for the City's Community Services team as they plan future capital projects at this location.

PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT: The Maude Burke Park Refresh Survey is now CLOSED! Thank you to everyone who participated in this survey and shared your thoughts, your response is much appreciated!

Conceptual Design is now complete! September 2023
