Brighton residents, please note an application has been made to amend the Concept Plan for the neighbourhood.
The amendment proposes several reconfigurations in the west, and southern portions of the neighbourhood. This includes changes to some of the land uses, street network, linear park design, and service networks. The following link provides information on how to share feedback with the City and the proponent, background, process and information on the application.
The City of Saskatoon is reviewing its regulations for short term rentals due to changes in the industry resulting from the rise of online hosting platforms like AirBnB and VRBO.
The Saskatoon Municipal Wards Commission is seeking insight and information from citizens of Saskatoon as the Commission looks to establish new ward boundaries for the municipal/school boards' elections in fall 2020 because of population growth and shifts since the 2016 election.
The City of Saskatoon is divided into ten wards. The Cities Act stipulates that each ward must contain approximately the same population, with ward populations varying by no more than 10% from the average ward population (the City's total population divided by the ten wards).
Currently, the populations of Ward 7 and Ward 10 exceed the 10% variance while the populations of Ward 5 and Ward 8 fall below the threshold. Accordingly, the Municipal Wards Commission will establish new ward boundaries to be in effect for the city's municipal election and school boards' elections in fall 2020. Of note, reconfiguring the ward boundaries to ensure all ten comply to the legislated population range will affect the boundaries of other wards as well in all three options.
This means that for the 2020 municipal and school boards' election, Ward 8's boundaries WILL change.
The College Park and East College Park Neighbourhood Traffic Review has been finalized based on traffic analysis, field observations and feedback from residents (emails, phone calls, social media, meetings, etc.). The plan is coming to the Standing Policy Committee on Transportation on Monday, April 1, 2019 for endorsement.
The report is available for review through the public agenda.
If you would like to speak at the Committee or Council meetings, please submit the online form by 8:00 am on the day of the meeting.
*News Release* At its November 20, 2017 meeting, Saskatoon City Council approved the Preferred Configuration for a re-envisioned transit system based around Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). The report brought forward by Administration presents recommendations for an appropriately-sized future Bus Rapid Transit system that will support the City’s anticipated growth.
This approval provides direction to HDR to move forward in developing a Functional Plan that will further refine the scale and cost of the new Bus Rapid Transit System, and anticipated changes to existing transit services.
