Saskatoon Growth Plan Public Meeting

Have your say!

 

RESIDENTS INVITED TO HAVE THEIR SAY IN SASKATOON’S FUTURE; GROWTH PLAN PUBLIC EVENTS PLANNED FOR MARCH 3 AND MARCH 10, 2015

 

The City of Saskatoon invites residents to attend one of three important public engagement events to discuss the proposed Growth Plan to Half a Million (Growth Plan), which includes long-term plans for a new transit system with Bus Rapid Transit (BRT); a new river crossing at 33rd Street and BRT lanes on the University Bridge; and changes to how we live, work, and play along our major corridors like 8th Street, 22nd Street, and Preston Avenue.

 

The public will also have an opportunity to provide input on implementation priorities for putting specific features of the Growth Plan in motion over the short-, medium-, and long-term.

 

Mark your calendars!  This is your opportunity to have your say in Saskatoon’s future.

 

Main Events – Growth Plan Focused Discussions

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

TCU Place, 35 22nd Street East

Daytime Session:  Noon to 2 p.m.

Evening Session:  6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

 

Growth Plan Campus Consultation

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Louis’ Loft, 93 Campus Drive

3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Event materials and an online survey will be available at www.growingfwd.ca beginning Wednesday, February 25, through Wednesday, March 18, 2015.

This will be the third round of public engagement since the Growth Plan launched in February 2014.  The input gathered during this round of engagement will help to confirm the long-term plans for corridor redevelopment, transit, and core area bridges, as well as set the direction for an implementation plan.  We will be back in fall to share what we heard and confirm the final Growth Plan with the public.

Once complete, the Growth Plan will help to guide future infrastructure investments so residents will have more choices for how they live and move around the city as Saskatoon grows to half a million people over the next 30 to 40 years.
