Resolution No. 7-05M

WHEREAS, providing directions to emergency services including police, ambulance and fire service, the trucking industry and tourist areas is often complicated due to the lack of municipal landmarks within a municipality; and

WHEREAS, those not familiar with legal land locations may have difficulty in finding specific locations without proper municipal signage; and

WHEREAS, roads in the province that are signed with “names” are not necessarily a meaningful reference point; and

WHEREAS, a uniform municipal signage system would help provide a common reference point for all municipal roads within the province;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that SARM adopt, promote and encourage the use of a uniform municipal signage system throughout the province by adopting the system used by the Province of Alberta and developed by Information Services Corporation of Saskatchewan, which identifies township and range roads with a unique township numbering system.
