Introduction

The Saskatoon North Partnership For Growth

The Saskatoon North Partnership for Growth (P4G) is a voluntary regional collaborative that includes political and administrative representation from five partnering municipalities: the Rural Municipality (RM) of Corman Park; the Cities of Martensville, Saskatoon, and Warman; and the Town of Osler. The P4G also includes advisory representation from the Saskatoon Regional Economic Development Authority (SREDA).

Given the pressures of rapid regional growth, the P4G recognized that a comprehensive approach to regional planning and servicing was needed to sustain economic prosperity, support a high quality of life, and protect the region’s natural beauty, ecology, and heritage. The Regional Plan (the Plan) represents a new vision for regional partnerships and regional planning, and will guide future regional growth through a coordinated approach to land use, development, and servicing.

Plan Area

The area managed by the P4G Regional Plan is indicated in Exhibit 1 and called “the Region” throughout the Plan. The Plan is intended to coordinate urban growth and development for the Cities of Martensville, Saskatoon, Warman, and the Town of Osler, in addition to managing surrounding rural areas within the RM of Corman Park that will urbanize as the population of the Region increases to one million residents. Plan areas in Corman Park are also intended to manage an effective transition from urban to rural land uses.
