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 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.
What are Local Area Plans (LAPs)?
LAPs are a public, participation-based approach to developing comprehensive neighbourhood plans that enable residents, business owners, property owners, community groups and other stakeholders to provide direct input into determining the future of their community. LAPs set out objectives and policies that guide the growth and development of Saskatoon neighbourhoods.
During the development of a LAP, participants work together to identify issues, develop goals and outline strategies to ensure the long-term success of their neighbourhood. By working together with the City of Saskatoon, through guidance of the Planning and Development Division, participants make recommendations to City Administration and City Council in the LAP.
Neighbourhood Safety is a significant component of the LAP. Using the principles of Safe Growth and CPTED, the Safety section of the LAP develops a community-centered approach to crime and perception of safety. Community members with local knowledge and experience work with the City to develop strategies to reduce the opportunity for crime, and improve perception of safety.
