Parkridge Architectural Controls

To enhance the street appeal of Parkridge, Saskatoon Land has selected a variety of architectural controls aimed at creating an aesthetically pleasing streetscape and encouraging a variety of different exterior building materials. The architectural controls selected by Saskatoon Land are an integral component in strengthening neighbourhood streetscapes and fostering diversity amongst housing choices, creating a warm and inviting environment.

 

GENERAL DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS - ALL LOT TYPES

These controls apply to lots regardless of phase and lot type and are in addition to the controls found in "Architectural Controls By Phase & Lot Type" section below.

 

Exterior Dwelling Material Requirements

Note: Material types and areas must be clearly identified on the drawings submitted in support of your Building Permit Application. Failure to do so may result in delays to the approval of your Building Permit Application.

Parkridge, Saskatoon Parkridge, Saskatoon

This home utilizes cedar shakes along the roofline and stone accent features near the garage edges, with the balance of the facade consisting of Hardie Board siding

This home features board and batten siding along the dormers, stone accents along the veranda columns, with the balance of the front facade consisting of vinyl siding.
  • Trim features, roof shingles, and parging will not be counted as a material. In order to be included in the required material amount, the material must be visibly shown on the 2D elevation plan and be visible from the – street or park. Material wrapped around a column or architectural feature is encouraged to provide cleaner edges, but will not count towards the required material total for the 2D elevation in review.

  • The materials being used should be distinctly different and discernible from each other. Contrast with the trim materials and exterior building materials being used is also encouraged.

  • Builders purchasing multiple lots adjacent to each other are encouraged to avoid repetition in colour and building styles.

Garage Placement

One further control will also apply to all of the lots that indicates which side of the lot the garage must be placed. The garage sides are identified in the Lot Information Package.

Corner Garage Placement

All corner lots have the following caveat registered on title respecting garage placement: The garage must be located on the side of the property that is furthest from the intersection. The image below demonstrates the permitted options for the placement of an attached garage on a corner lot, attached to the front of the house furthest from the street corner or attached to the rear of the house.

PLAN APPROVAL PROCESS

Saskatoon Land’s approval of dwelling plans is required prior to the submission of a building permit application. Builders are encouraged to meet with Saskatoon Land during the design stage to avoid potential delays.

 
The following information must be submitted to Saskatoon Land prior to the submission of a Building Permit Application:
  • Completed Application Form
  • One hard or digital copy of the working drawings, including site plan, floor plan, and dwelling elevations. All exterior dwelling materials and square footage must be identified on the elevation plans.

**Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will NOT be accepting any hard copies of application forms or working drawings. All documents must be submitted digitally.

To avoid delays, application forms and dwelling plans should be submitted to Saskatoon Land well in advance of applying for a Building Permit. Incomplete submissions will be held until the complete application is submitted. Plans will be reviewed for adherence to the architectural controls, and Saskatoon Land may contact the applicant to discuss any required revisions. Plans which do not meet all the architectural controls will be reviewed by Saskatoon Land’s Design Review Committee. The Design Review Committee’s decision is final and any revisions will be required to be made before approval.
Upon approval of the drawing set, Saskatoon Land will issue an approval letter to the applicant. Following this, builders may apply for their respective Building Permit. At the building permit stage, Saskatoon Land may review the Building Permit drawings again to ensure they are substantially consistent with the plans submitted during the review process.
Periodically, Saskatoon Land will inspect the project to ensure it is in substantial accordance with the approved plans. Builders/homeowners will be responsible for correcting any deficiencies to dwelling elevations which deviate from the approved plans.
