The primary goal of the City of Saskatoon planners is to build an increasingly sustainable community over time, with an enhanced quality of life, consistent with the vision and core strategies of the City’s Strategic Plan.
Through community outreach, City Council developed seven strategic goals to achieve the vision that Saskatoon citizens said they want. Learn more on the 2013-2023 Strategic Plan, and stay tuned as we launch the plans for reaching each goal.
Saskatoon is changing. It is how we manage change that is important. Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon was a public planning initiatve to develop the Growth Plan to Half a Million (Growth Plan).
The Official Community Plan is the foundation for the Growth Plan to Half a Million. Find out about other major land use policy projects such as the Wetlands Policy Project.
Urban reserves are tremendous economic, social, and cultural development opportunities that benefit the entire community including First Nations and non-First Nations people. Learn more about urban reserves. View maps of Saskatoon's urban reserves.
Neighbourhood Planning consists of activities intended to revitalize and build capacity in core neighbourhoods, monitor safety and work to reduce crime in neighbourhoods and collaborate on projects that affect established neighbourhoods.
Regional Planning works with other governments that have land use interests in Saskatoon and on the rural-urban fringe. The section works jointly with the Rural Municipality of Corman Park to manage land use and development in the Saskatoon Planning District. The section is also working to strengthen the City's relationships with First Nations that may be creating or developing a Reserve in or near Saskatoon.
