City Administration will now analyze and summarize your input into a consultation summary report. We will then revise the draft policy framework as necessary based on your input. A Summary Report, proposed policy framework, and Official Community Plan Amending Bylaw will be prepared for Council in the next few months. Once presented, a copy of this report will be posted to the Corridor Growth webpage.
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.
