Neighbourhood Safety Action Plan Survey

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.

Meeting #7 Wednesday May 15, 2019 Riverfront Park Uses: Diefenbaker Park, Optimist Hill, & Meewasin Trail

The seventh Exhibition LAP meeting was to discuss the roles different groups play in the management of the riverfront portion of the Exhibition LAP Study Area. There was a review of the history of development in the area, including the recent development of Optimist Hill. Brad Babyak the City of Saskatoon Recreation Services Manager for Open Space Development, Alan Otterbein the Design & Development Manager from Meewasin, and both Joe Van't Hof and Brad Sylvester from Optimist Hill (OSP Community Development Corporation) were in attendance to provide information on the riverfront area and answer questions from the public.

Meeting #6 Wednesday May 1, 2019 Neighbourhood Safety Action Plan

The sixth Exhibition LAP meeting was a follow-up to the Community Wide Neighbourhood Safety meeting held on March 27. Elisabeth Miller, Senior Planner, provided a presentation on feedback collected from the group exercises (Safe/Unsafe Sites/Areas and Pathways/Nodes) and the Perceptions of Safety Survey completed at the Community Wide Neighbourhood Safety meeting on March 27, 2019. The proposed Safety Action Plan was presented to the community for comment and approval. As subsequent Neighbourhood Safety work will follow the Safety Action Plan, attendees were also asked to indicate their interest in participating in a number of actions where engagement from the community is valuable to better addressing the local issues/concerns. 

Local crime statistics were shared as well at the meeting. Constable Patrick Skinnider from the Saskatoon Police Service provided an overview of reported crime occurrences in the area from early 2019, while also speaking about how crime statistics can sometimes be misleading.
