The development of the Growth Plan to Half a Million (Growth Plan) for the City of Saskatoon is nearing completion!
In advance of requesting a final decision on the Growth Plan, City Administration will be presenting the key directions of the plan at a public Growth Plan Summit event as part of City Council’s Governance and Priorities Committee meeting on March 14, 2016. Along with presentations from the Administration, the Summit will also include a presentation by Mr. Jarrett Walker, author of the book Human Transit, regarding transit planning principles and the recommendations for Saskatoon Transit included in the Growth Plan.
Following the presentations, stakeholders and members of the public will be invited to provide comments on the Growth Plan to Committee. Written requests to speak may be submitted in advance via the City's website at www.saskatoon.ca/writetocouncil.
