A summary report of the Public Realm Engagement is available on the City of Saskatoon website: College Corridor Plan: Public Realm Engagement Report February to December 2022
From February to December 2022, the Corridor Planning team conducted community engagement and technical analysis on the public realm. This built upon the preliminary decisions made in earlier stages regarding land use and density of future development to determine potential public realm improvements that are desirable and feasible.

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.
