Land Use Along Corridor Areas—Public Engagement Opportunities

In May 2023 Saskatoon City Council approved the Housing Accelerator Fund Action Plan.

As part of this, the City will be working with the community to create land use and zoning plans for five specific corridor plan areas (largely within Circle Drive, see map above) to enable new housing development. Community members are invited to offer input on proposed land use plans that are intended to go to City Council for approval Spring 2024. If the proposed land use plans receive City Council approval, the City will lead the rezoning process in these areas at no cost for any interested landowner within a Corridor Plan Area. For landowners and other stakeholders, the ultimate purpose of the project is to simplify the process of creating new housing.

We will be holding engagement sessions for this project in each of the five plan areas over the next couple of months, and everyone is invited to attend and give their feedback.

The Neighbourhood Level Infill Development Strategy recommends development of garden and garage suites. The Strategy is one component of a Comprehensive Plan for infill development within built up areas of the city. The Infill Strategy addresses small scale infill opportunities on individual residential lots, with a scope directed to an assessment of established neighbourhoods within Saskatoon, defined as neighbourhoods located inside Circle Drive, as well as Sutherland and Montgomery.

The Infill Strategy ensures the distinctive development patterns and historic characteristics of pre-war and post-war neighbourhoods are maintained. It proposes regulatory amendments that will help to minimize massing of new developments, regulate infill lot grading, address parking concerns, and protect the streetscape.
