Public Meeting: Primary Dwelling Zoning Bylaw

The City of Saskatoon, Planning and Development Division has been preparing proposed amendments to the Zoning Bylaw regulating primary dwellings (one-unit, two-unit and semi-detached dwellings) in established neighbourhoods.   We have been working hard over the past few months to achieve a set of  amendments which will encourage sensitive infill development and allow design flexibility for builders.

Included are changes to the standards for building height, building length, site width, and front porch encroachments. There are also proposed changes to the Sidewalk Crossing Bylaw to disallow curb cuts and driveway crossings in the older neighbourhoods. The information will be posted on the City of Saskatoon website prior to the meeting.

A public information meeting will be held on

Thursday, October 30 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Presentations will occur at 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  (the same material will be presented at both times)

Mayfair Library 306 – 33rd Street West.

In order to focus on the guidelines for primary dwellings, the amendments to regulate small scale multiple unit dwellings on corner sites (four per corner) will be deferred until early 2015.
