This site is zoned R1A - One-Unit Residential District under Bylaw No. 8770, 2009 The City of Saskatoon Zoning Bylaw (Zoning Bylaw).

Type II is defined as a “residential care home in which the number of residents, excluding staff, is more than five and not more than 15”.
Subject to Discretionary Use approval, 102 McArthur Lane will be developed to accommodate a Residential Care Home Type II with the capacity to serve a maximum of 15 residents and two staff members. Five on-site parking spaces are required and five will be provided on the property’s front driveway and in the attached garage.
