City Administration will now analyze and summarize your input into a consultation summary report.  We will then revise the draft policy framework as necessary based on your input.  A Summary Report, proposed policy framework, and Official Community Plan Amending Bylaw will be prepared for Council in the next few months.  Once presented, a copy of this report will be posted to the Corridor Growth webpage.

The Growth Plan to Half a Million (Growth Plan) was developed over two and a half years through a five-phase public engagement process called Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon.  Consistent with International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) guidelines, residents were engaged in discussions on everything from current and future challenges to potential long-term changes for the City. 

The Growth Plan is about making choices to proactively manage the changes associated with growth, creating a city that is vibrant and attractive to future generations. A vibrant Saskatoon has a diverse mix of housing, commercial, social, cultural, and recreational opportunities that are universally accessible by all modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, transit, and driving.  The Growth Plan is made up of several themes that, when pieced together, form a new growth model for Saskatoon:

  • Corridor Growth – Encouraging growth and development near our existing major corridors
  • Transit – Making transit more attractive to more people as we grow
  • Core Area Bridges – Making the most of our existing road infrastructure
  • Employment Areas – Ensuring we have the right amount of employment in the right areas
  • Active Transportation – Providing more choices for how people move around the city
  • Financing Growth – Planning ahead for the costs of growth

Growth Plan Now Approved!

The Growth Plan Summary Report was presented to City Council at their April 25, 2016, meeting and received approval in principle.
