2016 Guide to Martensville - Page 14

Message From the Mayor Welcome to Western Canada’s fastest growing city, the City of Martensville! We are an active and friendly community of nearly 10,000 people. I would like to personally invite you to explore the many reasons why so many people call Martensville home. Martensville, a great place to play! Martensville is a safe and friendly community that is always warm and inviting. We have an abundance of recreational facilities to keep you and your family busy and active. If walking, jogging, long boarding, rollerblading or biking is your thing, you can find nearly 10 km of paved trails connecting our community. The Martensville Athletic Pavilion provides year round recreation options with 3 court surfaces, 200 metre running track and fitness areas. No matter what you choose, I am sure you will be surprised at all that Martensville has to offer. Fishing, canoeing, spray park, curling, ball diamonds, football, soccer, kart racing track, tennis and swimming are just some of the few things to do while in Martensville. Martensville, a great place for business! Economic development continues to grow in Martensville. Joining an already strong retail, service and industrial sector is Canadian Tire, Saskatoon Co-op Food Store, Speedy Collision, Boston Pizza and the Great Canadian Oil Change. Martensville offers a strategic advantage as the central hub for the region, located just 8 km north of Saskatoon and the centre of the regional area. Offering economic development incentives and a residential to business tax differential that is second to none in Saskatchewan, Martensville is definitely open for business. Martensville, a great place for families! Martensville has two elementary schools and one high school. The high school is currently in major construction mode as it doubles in size. The first phase is now complete with a performance arts theatre that is connected to the Martensville Athletic Pavilion. The construction of two new elementary schools is well under way in our newest neighbourhood, Lake Vista. Outside of school, the many recreational and community events create a community that our family loves to call home. I am confident yours will too! On behalf of all residents, I’d like to welcome you to Martensville, quite simply, a great place!! Kent Muench - Mayor of Martensville 14 14
