South East Concept Plan
The South East Concept Plan (SECP) will identify land uses, servicing, financing and phasing strategies to enable development in a key area of the the 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;
- capacity and conceptual design of transportation, wastewater, drainage and utility servicing; and
- phasing and high level financing strategies.
Status Update - October 2023
Staff from the R.M. of Corman Park and City of Saskatoon are working to complete a final draft of the SECP report, with a target to have it completed by the end of this year. Please keep checking on this page for more project updates. Additional reports will be posted under 'Key Links' on this page as they become available.
Status Update - February 2023
The project is in the final review stage. Public and stakeholder engagement has concluded for the project. A draft concept plan as received by the consultant at the end of 2022. The Administrations of the R.M. of Corman Park and City of Saskatoon are reviewing the document to determine refinements that are needed prior to sharing publicly.
Status Update – August 2022
Prior to finalizing a draft of the South East Concept Plan (SECP), a virtual open house was held from August 29th to September 12th, 2022. The purpose of this virtual open house was to provide an opportunity for landowners, rights holders, stakeholders as well as the public to review materials that will form part of the draft SECP.
The following topics were covered:
- Proposed land use concept for the SECP;
- Proposed land use categories within the SECP that are new to the P4G Planning District;
- Proposed servicing options being considered for both the ultimate and interim servicing; and
- An overview of financing and cost recovery approaches.
Status Update - November 2021
The South East Concept Plan (SECP) is just over halfway done. Urban Systems continues to work with Corman Park and Saskatoon on servicing and land use opportunities.
To date, two workshops were facilitated by Urban Systems; one in April and one in May to discuss servicing and land use goals, particularly in identified urban growth areas. The first workshop was administrations from Corman Park and Saskatoon. The second workshop was with the Steering Committee which includes representatives from English River First Nation, Cowessess First Nation, Ministry of Highways, Water Security Agency, etc.
A final draft of the Natural Area Screening (NAS) was completed by the consultant in June 2021 which provided a high-level review of environmental features in the study area, identifying wetlands, plant and animal species and soil capabilities. Further assessment and consideration for conservation is recommended. These recommendations and when they should be completed will be considered in the final SECP. The final Natural Area Screening Report is attached under Key Links.
The next stage involves Urban Systems continuing providing recommended servicing and land use strategies. These strategies will be shared in 2022 to obtain feedback from landowners, rights holders and stakeholders to help inform the outcome of the SECP. Both in-person and virtual engagement/communication are anticipated which will remain flexible and responsive to evolving public health guidance.
Stay tuned for your opportunity to provide feedback!
