Overall Planning Goals

The primary goal of the City of Saskatoon planners is to build an increasingly sustainable community over time, with an enhanced quality of life, consistent with the vision and core strategies of the City’s Strategic Plan. 

Through community engagement and consultation, we seek to understand the values of the community, and reflect those values through the implementation of development policies, programs, bylaws and standards. 

Our mandate includes district planning, future growth, land use and zoning policy, development review, planning for new neighbourhoods, revitalizing existing communities, affordable housing, community safety, community and demographic research, heritage management, and business licensing and bylaw enforcement.  We work with community, business, First Nations and regional partners to foster mutually supportive relationships and sustainable development throughout the City and region.
