Growth Plan to Half a Million


The Growth Plan to Half a Million (Growth Plan) was developed over two and a half years through a five-phase public engagement process called Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon.  Consistent with International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) guidelines, residents were engaged in discussions on everything from current and future challenges to potential long-term changes for the City. 

The Growth Plan is about making choices to proactively manage the changes associated with growth, creating a city that is vibrant and attractive to future generations. A vibrant Saskatoon has a diverse mix of housing, commercial, social, cultural, and recreational opportunities that are universally accessible by all modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, transit, and driving.  The Growth Plan is made up of several themes that, when pieced together, form a new growth model for Saskatoon:

  • Corridor Growth – Encouraging growth and development near our existing major corridors
  • Transit – Making transit more attractive to more people as we grow
  • Core Area Bridges – Making the most of our existing road infrastructure
  • Employment Areas – Ensuring we have the right amount of employment in the right areas
  • Active Transportation – Providing more choices for how people move around the city
  • Financing Growth – Planning ahead for the costs of growth
