Local area plan progresses

From the 2013 Fall Newsletter

The Mayfair and KelseyWoodlawn Local Area Plan  (LAP) is now well underway.

Local area planning gives residents an active role in determining the future of their neighbourhood. Residents, business owners, property owners, community groups and other stakeholders form a
partnership with the City of Saskatoon to develop goals and strategies aimed at improving the long-term success of their community

Thanks to everyone who has participated in the Local Area Plan so far. Since the launch in December 2012, meetings have been held on the following topics:

Setting a vision for Mayfair and Kelsey-Woodlawn;

  • Land use and zoning;
  • Culture, history and heritage;
  • The North Downtown Master Plan and SIAST’s future plans;
  • Neighbourhood safety; and 
  • Traffic.

In addition, a meeting was held in March for business and property owners who are interested in forming a Business Improvement District in the area. Also, during the summer a workshop was held on Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, followed by numerous Safety audits.

To see notes and summaries of past Local Area Plan meetings, and for information about future meetings, please visit http://www.saskatoon.ca/go/lap.

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, Sept. 10 at Youth For Christ’s meeting space, 1338 Ave. B North at 7 p.m.  The meeting will include a recap and short discussion of
previous meetings and an outline for the rest of the LAP process.

Other meeting topics in the fall will include municipal services; parks and recreation; and the second traffic meeting, where the neighbourhood-wide traffic plan will be presented back to the community. After the formal meetings have concluded (likely in early 2014), the LAP will be drafted with feedback and input from the neighbourhoods.

Everyone is welcome to attend future LAP meetings, even if you have not been to any before.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.
