Corridors are destinations, not just roads that get you efficiently from point A to B. They connect neighbours and neighbourhoods together.  They’re places for people – whether you’re walking, riding, driving, or spending time with your family and friends.

 

Relationship To Plan For Growth

Corridor Planning - Hierarchy

Project Background

Corridor Planning is a key initiative of the Plan for Growth and will begin along the Bus Rapid Transit Red and Green Lines. It will identify a variety of ways and options to transform the corridors into destination locations that can support the BRT system, enhance local neighbourhoods and foster city-building opportunities.

  • May 5 & 6, 2018
    • Multiple walking tours were held along 8th Street E and 22nd Street W on May 5-6.  The objective was to share some ideas about residential infill, record the current condition of the built environment, and gain data on the pedestrian experience along these two major corridors.   Participants were asked to take an online survey following the walk as a way to gather their impressions of the private and public spaces.  The survey asked about benches, garbage cans, trees, sounds, smells, and their ability to walk safely and easily along the route.  If you couldn't make it to a walking tour that's okay, you can still share your experience.   Learn More about the Pedestrian Experience Questionnaire.​ All of the data collected during the walks and on the survey will be shared at the upcoming fall engagement.
  • April 7, 2018
    • Finished collecting feedback from the "Come & Grow" event.  An online survey open from March 7 – April 6, 2018 posed the same three 'Big Questions' that were asked at the event, which gained an additional 33 responses. These questions focused on identifying important places along the corridors, the different types of businesses that are needed, and what types of things would make you consider living along one of the corridors. Check out what we heard.
  • March 7, 2018
    • On March 7, 2018 the City of Saskatoon brought together a wide range of the Plan for Growth projects to provide a significant opportunity for the public to learn about the current Public Transit Infrastructure Fund projects and provide their thoughts. The success of this event saw stakeholders engaging in a lot of fun ways with these exciting projects, that included activities for all ages. As our city continues to grow toward a population of 500,000, we encourage everyone to come to one of our future Plan for Growth events to help us understand what matters to you most.
