PSA – Public Service Announcement from the City of Saskatoon
GROWING FORWARD! SHAPING SASKATOON releases two Growth Plan reports.
The City of Saskatoon’s (City) Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon project is pleased to present two reports for information to City Council’s Planning and Operations Committee on June 17, 2014, which outline work-to-date on the City’s Growth Plan to Half a Million (Growth Plan).
The first report is the Growth Plan Summary Report #1: Taking Stock & Visioning. This report outlines work that Saskatoon has done to date to promote growth and development, identifies and explains key areas that will need to be addressed in the Growth Plan, and sets the stage for public discussion about detailed Growth Plan options in October 2014.
A summer information series called “Spotlight On” will be launched in the coming weeks and will highlight information contained in the summary report in the areas of core bridges, transit, rapid transit, and growth near major corridors.
The second report is the Winter 2014 Engagement Summary. This report shares what was heard during the Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon public engagement from February 25 to March 21, 2014.
Both reports are available on the project website at http://www.growingfwd.ca and represent the completion of Phase 2 of the five-phase Growth Plan development process.
Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon is a public planning initiative that is designed to plan for our future and navigate challenges associated with rapid population growth. A major outcome of Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon will be the Growth Plan, which will help guide civic infrastructure investments as Saskatoon grows to half a million people over the next 30 to 40 years.
Public consultation will be ongoing throughout the Growing Forward! Shaping Saskatoon process. Watch for more public engagement opportunities coming in October 2014. Those interested can also sign up for project update notifications at http://www.growingfwd.ca.
