Surveys on Prioritizing Public Realm Improvements
The feedback the City received on public realm improvements was compiled and shared in September – please see https://www.saskatoon.ca/engage/college-corridor-plan.
The City has taken the feedback and developed a list of potential open space and streetscape improvements for the area. Now, we would like your help in prioritizing where resources should be focused when we develop the plan.
If you have the time we would appreciate it if you could share your preferences in one or both of the following surveys.
Open Space survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/collegeopenspace
Streetscape survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/collegestreetscape
In addition, we are hosting a walk-through of the surveys on November 21 at 7pm to allow for questions and clarifications. This will be a hybrid event (online and in-person) and will be recorded and posted to the website. It isn’t intended to be a traditional engagement event: rather the focus will be solely on helping people fill out the survey.
When: Monday November 21, 2022 at 7:00 pm
To Join Virtually: Find link on our website here: https://www.saskatoon.ca/engage/college-corridor-plan
To Join in Person: Meeting room #3, Saskatoon Field House (2020 College Drive, main floor).
College Corridor – Land Use Scenarios
Please budget at least 15-20 minutes to complete this survey. This survey will be open until the end of Friday December 10.
Corridor plans are a framework for future development to transform major streets, or “corridors” near the future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes into places for people. The College Corridor Plan covers the area located along College Drive and Preston Avenue, beside the University of Saskatchewan lands. For a map of the College Corridor Plan study area, background information about this project’s objectives and process, and to sign up for our Corridor Planning email newsletter, please visit saskatoon.ca/engage/college-corridor-plan.
In response to the input received from the community in early November, the project team has developed a few potential scenarios for distributing density in the study area. The goal of this survey is to build a single, refined option based on community input on the different potential scenarios presented here:
1) College Drive Scenario #1
2) College Drive Scenario #2
3) College Drive Scenario #3
4) Preston Scenario #1
5) Preston Scenario #2
Survey results are anonymous and no identifying information will be included in our reports, unless you are completing the survey on behalf of an organization and choose to provide your organization’s name in the “Tell us about yourself” section.
The next meeting on College Corridor Land Uses will be November 24th, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., via Microsoft Teams. The link will be available on the City website 48 hours prior to the meeting.
This meeting will focus on:
– Results from the land use meetings and land use survey;
– Draft land use map options;
– Considerations and refinement of land use map options;
The session will be a ‘Town Hall’ format with presentations followed by a moderated Question & Answer period. No RSVP is necessary to attend.
At the City Council meeting on April 29, 2019, City Administration will be presenting reports on the Bus Rapid Transit system as well as the Downtown Active Transportation Network.
On April 29, after over three years of technical work and public engagement, Saskatoon City Council will receive routing reports and recommendations on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and the Downtown Active Transportation (AT) Network. The BRT system and Downtown AT Network are key components of the City’s Plan for Growth, supporting corridor growth and economic development by improving the mobility of current and future residents. They enable viable options to automobile travel, helping the City with sustainability, climate and population growth challenges that are becoming increasingly important to address.
You can find summaries of the reports, including engagement activities and route information, at saskatoon.ca/transit-plan, and find details on the Downtown AT Network at saskatoon.ca/moving-around/cycling/cycling-plans-projects. The full reports and the official Agenda for the April 29 meeting will be available at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24 at saskatoon.ca/city-hall.
Bus Rapid Transit
Thank you to everyone who participated in one of the 19 engagement sessions we held over the last few weeks. In case you weren’t able to come to one of the events, we invite you to take a look at the information presented at the sessions, including route maps. You can find them on the Transit Plan engagement page under the Getting Involved tab.
Once you have had a chance to go over all the documents, send your preference on route options along with any other comments to email@example.com. All feedback received before 8:00 a.m. on January 4, 2019, will be included in the report to City council, which will be submitted in the first quarter of 2019. Feedback received after the January 4 deadline will be kept on file as part of the project.
The BRT Project Team would like to thank everyone for their interest and active involvement in 2018.
Information will be added to the Growth Plan website as it becomes available.
If you have any questions about BRT, or would like to participate in future engagement activities, please contact BRT@saskatoon.ca. If you have any questions about the Plan for Growth in general, please contact the Growth Plan Implementation Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a stakeholder in the future of Downtown and Nutana, we want to hear from you! The City of Saskatoon will be holding two Come & Go Engagement Sessions in both the Downtown and Nutana areas to provide information on the proposed Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, as well as additional information on the proposed Downtown All Ages and Abilities (AAA) Cycling Network. We want to work with you to ensure that the needs of everyone who uses Saskatoon’s roads are met.
These engagement sessions are an opportunity for you to review potential BRT routing and Downtown AAA Cycling Network options. We will listen to your comments and gather your input on preferences and considerations on both initiatives, prior to City Council deciding on these plans in early 2019. The proposed BRT routing options are shown below. Please consider attending an engagement session to have your say about the future of transportation in Saskatoon.
