Report commissioned by City of Saskatoon projects major future growth

Saskatoon’s future is bright, according to a report presented to city council on Monday night. The 215-page report, prepared by MXD Developments Strategistsof Vancouver projects that Saskatoon’s population would hit 325,000 by 2028. By then, the city will require six new hotels, a thirty percent expansion in retail space from 10 million square feet to 13 million square feet, and an forty-five percent expansion of industrial space from the current 15.2 million square feet to 22.3 million square feet.

The primary recommendation in the report is a relaxing of the current direct control zoning regulations that limit the types and numbers of businesses that can operate in suburban areas.

City administration will study the report and bring their recommendations to council in the near future.
