New blueprint for Saskatoon's older neighbourhoods
Infill strategy will be tabled at city committee meeting today
The city of Saskatoon has a new blueprint for development in older neighbourhoods.
Being a good neighbour, that's going to make this work- Allan Wallace, city of Saskatoon
The proposed infill strategy will be tabled today with a committee of council later today at city hall.
The plan addresses the challenges of building homes on lots in already established neighbourhoods. It also explores some alternative forms of housing such as garden or garage suites.
"It's a little bit about character, it's a little bit about being conscious about what you are doing to neighbouring properties, and being a good neighbour that's going to make this work,” said planning and operations manager Allan Wallace.
The city will present the infill plan to the public at an open house in the New Year.
