Exhibition Area LAP Survey

Exhibition Area LAP stakeholders please complete our survey

Local Area Planning gives residents an active role in determining the future of their neighbourhood. Residents, business owners, property owners, community groups and other stakeholders form a partnership with the City of Saskatoon to develop goals and strategies aimed at improving the long-term success of their community.

What are Local Area Plans (LAPs)?

LAPs are a public, participation-based approach to developing comprehensive neighbourhood plans that enable residents, business owners, property owners, community groups and other stakeholders to provide direct input into determining the future of their community. LAPs set out objectives and policies that guide the growth and development of Saskatoon neighbourhoods.

During the development of a LAP, participants work together to identify issues, develop goals and outline strategies to ensure the long-term success of their neighbourhood. By working together with the City of Saskatoon, through guidance of the Planning and Development Division, participants make recommendations to City Administration and City Council in the LAP.

Neighbourhood Safety is a significant component of the LAP. Using the principles of Safe Growth and CPTED, the Safety section of the LAP develops a community-centered approach to crime and perception of safety. Community members with local knowledge and experience work with the City to develop strategies to reduce the opportunity for crime, and improve perception of safety. 

Plans in Progress

Exhibition Local Area Plan

Neighbourhood Planning wants stakeholders in the Exhibition Area to help identify what matters most to them in the study area. Please fill out the survey at the link below to let us know what you want to address during the Local Area Planning process. The study area for the Exhibition LAP is Taylor Street to the North, Broadway Avenue to the East, Ruth Street (East of Lorne Avenue) and Circle Drive (West of Lorne Avenue) to the South, and the riverbank to the West.

Exhibition Area LAP Stakeholders please complete our LAP Survey

In November of 2018 the City launched an LAP for the Exhibition neighbourhood.  To kick-start the process, we are asking residents to show us what they love most about living in Exhibition by sharing photos of their favourite place, activity or anything in the neighbourhood they enjoy.  We will be gathering more information through a neighbourhood-wide survey in the coming weeks, followed by community engagement events in 2019 that will continue throughout the Plan's development.  Visit saskatoon.ca/engage to get involved and sign up for project updates.
