Currently within Corman Park bylaws, there are two main zoning districts for country residential development. The first is a lower density district that has lot sizes between 1 acre and 10 acres with an average of 2.47 acres. The second district is higher density with a minimum lot size of 0.5 acres and a maximum lot size of 10 acres. This district is in combination with a recreational development, meaning any multi-parcel development that has lots with a minimum site size of 0.5 acres must have an integrated, active recreational amenity included.
There has been interest for higher density multi-parcel developments, without the integrated, active recreational component, within Corman Park and specifically within this area, which could include lot sizes smaller than 0.5 acres.
The policies of both Corman Park and the Corman Park – Saskatoon Planning District allow for re-subdivision of existing multi-parcel country residential subdivisions, but only if a parcel is ‘larger than the average’. The intent of current policies is to keep the parcels as close to the original subdivision plan as possible, to retain site size uniformity, manage servicing, and to maintain community expectations on density. These policies create limitations for some properties and a number of residents have asked for a review of the re-subdivision policies. Feedback on this issue is desired by R.M. Council.
Divisions 1-3 currently have a mix of land uses including agriculture, numerous multi-parcel country residential acreage communities, a light industrial business park and small pockets of commercial and recreational development. Over the past number of years there have been numerous inquiries about opportunities for growth and proposals for new non-residential development. In the past there have been mixed reactions to new or expanded land uses within Divisions 1-3.
To help ensure growth is accommodated in the appropriate locations and is compatible with existing development we would like feedback on where you think there are good locations for new or expanded commercial, recreational and light industrial development. For example, maybe you think lands near the East Floral Industrial Park are suitable for expansion or commercial development would be suitable located along a high traffic corridor, such as Highway 11.
Development in this area relies on a variety of servicing including communal potable water lines and on-site servicing, such as wells or septic tanks. These systems can have cumulative environmental impacts if not managed properly. Individual servicing can also be more expensive to install and maintain. Communal or regional servicing may be an alternative that can be explored by Corman Park.
Some types of infrastructure and servicing may require a more detailed review than others. Understanding specific issues will help make sure Corman Park focuses on the right topics.
The policies of both Corman Park and the Corman Park – Saskatoon Planning District allow for sea cans (shipping containers) on agricultural properties. In the Planning District, shipping containers are not allowed in multi-parcel country residential subdivisions, but outside of the Planning District they may be allowed in multi-parcel country residential subdivisions at Council’s discretion. Council wants to look at creating consistent rules between Corman Park and the Planning District but recognizes there may be differences between agricultural properties and multi-parcel country residential subdivisions.
There have been numerous new developments as well as inquiries and proposals that include new and expanded walking trails, bike paths, parks, playgrounds, recreational structures, outdoor amenities and fitness facilities. Collectively, we will refer to these as active transportation and playgrounds in this survey. Residents in the community enjoy these amenities, however concerns with usage, construction standards, maintenance and traffic have arisen.
Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. If you have any questions or additional comments, please contact Jessica Mitchell at email@example.com or 306-978-6465.
