Neighbourhood Planning


City Centre Plan

The City Centre Plan represents the ongoing commitment by the City to ensure Saskatoon's Downtown and major connecting corridors maintains and expands its level of importance and stature, and meets the needs and expectations of the community as we move towards a population of 500,000.

Vacant Lot & Adaptive Reuse Strategy

The Vacant Lot  & Adaptive Reuse Strategy is comprised of four interrelated components: Incentives, Policy Options, Vacant Lot Inventory and a Brownfield Redevelopment Guidebook. The goal of the strategy is to encourage more infill development and intensify land use within established neighbourhoods (including the Downtown) in the City of Saskatoon.

Pleasant Hill Village

The revitalization of Pleasant Hill Village, along 20th Street West between Avenue N and Avenue P South, is anticipated to be complete in 2020. It is a creative mix of several different components including a school, a wellness centre, daycare, parks, a community garden, seniors housing and affordable family housing.

South Caswell Redevelopment

Through the Caswell Hill Local Area Plan, residents established a number of future goals and recommendations for their neighbourhood, one being the redevelopment of the former transit facility site informally known as the "Bus Barns." In 2009, a design and community consultation process resulted in a redevelopment plan for the South Caswell area upon the relocation of the current transit facility. 

Neighbourhood Safety

The Neighbourhood Safety Program works with community members and groups, civic administration, and other groups to conduct Risk Assessments, Safety Audits and Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) Reviews, based on the principles of CPTED. 

Imagine Idylwyld

Imagine Idylwyld is a planning, transportation and design initiative to improve the function, safety and connectivity along Idylwyld Drive, between 20th Street and 25th Street East.

Junction Improvement Strategy

The Junction is located at the cross section of three Saskatoon neighbourhoods, Pleasant Hill, Riversdale, and West Industrial, separated by the CP Rail line. The Junction Improvement Strategy outlines potential improvements to the area.

Local Area Planning

Local Area Planning gives residents an active role in determining the future of their neighbourhood. Residents, business owners, property owners, community groups, volunteers 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. The completed plan, often called a LAP,  contains specific recommendations for short, medium, and long term improvements.
