South East Concept Plan

The South East Concept Plan (SECP) will identify land uses, servicing, financing and phasing strategies that will enable the compatible, efficient and cost-effective development in a key area of the current Corman Park-Saskatoon Planning District and the future Saskatoon North Partnership for Growth (P4G) Planning District

Urban Systems Ltd. has been retained by Corman Park and Saskatoon to develop the SECP which will include:

  • a land use strategy for future rural and urban lands;
  • a servicing strategy for long term rural growth areas and an interim strategy for future urban growth areas; and
  • capacity and conceptual design of  transportation, wasterwater, drainage and utility servicing, phasing, and proposed financing strategies. 

Engagement

The partnering municipalities have kicked off the SECP and we’re excited to hear from you! 

We recognize the SECP is an important project for landowners, rights holders, and stakeholders and are committed to ensuring that everyone has access to project information and engagement activities. Check out the graphic below for the five project phases and associated engagement activities.

Engagement - phasing

Both in-person and virtual engagement/communication are anticipated which will remain flexible and responsive to evolving public health guidance.

We are committed to the following goals as part of the SECP engagement process:

  1. Update landowners, rights holders, and stakeholders on the purpose, project timelines, progress, and key deliverables of the SECP.
  2. Provide an opportunity to landowners, rights holders, and stakeholders to re-evaluate opportunities, constraints, and needs of the study area.
  3. Provide an opportunity to landowners, rights holders, and stakeholders to offer input and feedback.
  4. Provide an opportunity to landowners, rights holders, and stakeholder to review the draft and final SECP.

We will be coming back to these four goals throughout the engagement process to measure our success.

Do you remember providing input in 2012 on the initial South East Concept Plan?

In 2012, the partnering municipalities and the consultant, MMM Group, may have connected with you during a workshop, an interview or via the online survey. Where appropriate, we will build on the input that was shared during the 2012 engagement process and incorporate it in the new SECP.

Status Update - May 2021

Urban Systems has recently completed data collection and the first stages of engagement. To date, they have identified the opportunities and constraints of the study area, held meetings with stakeholders about their short and long-term development goals, and prepared a Natural Area Screening (NAS) report. 

The next stage involves Urban Systems having ongoing discussions with Corman Park and Saskatoon on servicing and land use opportunities to develop a range of strategies. These strategies will be shared to obtain feedback from landowners, rights holders and stakeholders to help inform the outcome of the SECP. Stay tuned for your opportunity to provide feedback!
