Throughout the South Downtown’s development history, there have been numerous studies, City Council hearings, and other public processes. The City of Saskatoon invited public input on the preliminary concept plan. Open houses were held on April 27 and 28 from 4 – 9 p.m. and were attended by 507 Saskatoon residents.

The concept plan and public input forms were also available at City of Saskatoon leisure centres, City Hall, the Meewasin Valley Authority (MVA), and the three Business Improvement Districts. As well, the City developed a web page that allowed citizens to review the plan and provide input.

Three hundred and sixty-four comment sheets, plus individual presentations, were received. Additionally, comments and input were received through other venues including a separate town hall meeting held by the core neighbourhood associations and stakeholders. Four duplicate submissions were removed.

Overall, there was a very positive response to the Plan. The overwhelming majority (well over 80%) approved or strongly approved of the concept plan’s eight key elements. Most respondents expressed real enthusiasm for the plan and a desire to see it move forward. Comments were very thoughtful and respondents took a great deal of care in expressing their views.
