Heritage Plan, Policy & Program Review
Heritage Policy and Program Review
In 2012, the City completed a Heritage Policy and Program Review. The review provided a framework to further recognize the potential of the city's heritage resources to act as a solid basis for the development of a vital and sustainable urban environment. Through a broad collaborative process involving many stakeholders, the review identified an array of goals and actions, gathered into an implementation strategy that integrates conservation initiatives within the land use planning and development approval process and supports community heritage initiatives.
The review provided a framework for heritage policies and procedures for the continuing survey of potential heritage resources, renewed focus for heritage incentives and integration with long-range planning objectives including sustainability and economic development initiatives.
Civic Heritage Policy
Building on the Heritage Policy and Program Review, City Council approved an updated Civic Heritage Policy in March 2014. The updated Policy provides for an expanded definition of heritage and provides strategic direction for the conservation of tangible and intangible heritage resources in the city of Saskatoon.
The Saskatoon Heritage Plan is a companion document to the updated Civic Heritage Policy. The Plan describes the City's long-term approach to support the conservation of Saskatoon's historic resources by linking the updated Civic Heritage Policy with implementation actions.
