The Growth Plan explores ways to encourage growth and redevelopment near Saskatoon’s major corridors in order to reduce outward growth pressures, provide more housing options close to employment areas, and enhance transportation choices throughout the City. Residents have expressed a desire for sustainable growth options and a better balance of outward and upward growth. Corridor Growth is essential to transforming low-density, auto-centric land uses into vibrant, complete communities that support attractive transit. The Growth Plan identifies a shortlist of major corridors with greatest potential for redevelopment and supporting future Bus Rapid Transit. These corridors include portions of: 8th Street East, Preston Avenue, 22nd Street West and Idlywyld Drive North.
What has been completed so far?
The Growth Plan was approved in principle by City Council at their April 25, 2016 meeting.
What are we doing?
City Administration is currently developing a ten-year action plan (2017-2026) to guide implementation. This action plan will be presented to Council in early 2017.
City Administration is currently developing a Corridor Planning Program to guide future Corridor Plans.
What can you do?
- Thank you to everyone that helped Shape Our Corridors - a summary report on the March / April 2017 Questionnaire is currently being prepared for Council.
