Corman Park - Saskatoon Planning District

The Corman Park - Saskatoon Planning District (the Planning District) is an area of the R.M. directly adjacent to and surrounding the City of Saskatoon where the R.M. and the City have a joint interest in managing land use and development.  The Planning District has a separate Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw than the rest of the R.M. and applications within the Planning District are referred to our District Planning Commission for a recommendation prior to consideration by R.M. Council.
 
History of the Planning District
The Planning District has a long history, dating back to the 1950s. The first Zoning Bylaw was adopted in 1956, with the most recent Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning Bylaw being approved in 2010. 

The Planning District Boundary is shown on the map below.

District Planning Commission


The role of the District Planning Commission (DPC) is to meet on a monthly, or as needed, basis and make recommendations to the R.M. Council on discretionary use, rezoning and subdivision applications within the Planning District. The DPC also reviews and discusses current planning issues affecting the Planning District, as well as reviews the District OCP and Zoning Bylaw and advises the R.M. and City Councils on any suggested textual amendments. 

The DPC is comprised of 9 representatives:

  • 4 appointed by the R.M. 
  • 4 appointed by the City 
  • 1 joint representative
Non-voting members that assist the DPC are staff members from the R.M., the City, the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, and the Saskatoon Health Region.
