Zoning Bylaw Review


Digital Zoning Bylaw Now Available!

As part of the Zoning Bylaw Review we identified a need for an easier-to-use, online version of the Zoning Bylaw.

We are pleased to announce that the Digital Zoning Bylaw is now available at The online version of Bylaw No. 8770 – Zoning Bylaw, 2009, will make it easier to find information on specific areas of the city, through an easy-to-navigate interface as well as interactive maps.

Why are we reviewing the Zoning Bylaw?

The Zoning Bylaw last underwent a review from 2007 to 2009. To align with identified strategic priorities and current trends, a range of amendments will be considered, including business-friendly and economic-development initiatives, environmental initiatives and other current trends in planning.  Amendments will also align with other strategic City initiatives, including the Plan for Growth, the Culture Plan, the Saskatoon North Partnership for Growth Regional Plan and the redesigned Official Community Plan.

What do we hope to achieve?

This project will undertake a review of the Zoning Bylaw to ensure that it meets the current and desired trends in commercial, residential and community development. It will also ensure that the Zoning Bylaw aligns with the City's sustainability goals and that it follows best practices.

The Review will also include the development of a digital platform for the Zoning Bylaw.
