On Tuesday afternoon, the Saskatoon Municipal Planning Commission looked into a possible rezoning of part of the city’s Brighton neighborhood.
Dream Development submitted an application to rezone a portion of the western part of the Brighton community near Brighton Way and Brighton Gate. Both sites are currently undeveloped and labeled as future urban development.
The Saskatoon YWCA is proposing an 18-unit housing complex to meet demand.
The proposed change would change the sites to R1A, R1B, and R2.
Former Vancouver Canuck Jake Vartanen found not guilty of sexual assault.
Pope Francis held a public mass at the Edmonton football stadium.
R1A is a one-unit residential district, R1B is a small lot one-unit residential district, and R2 is a one- and two-unit residential district.
This change will also allow for related community usage.
Anthony Andre, senior planner for the City of Saskatoon, says the change will benefit the community as a whole.
“Related community uses would be things like daycares, places of worship and care homes,” Andre said.
A Saskatoon Transit Safety Report is being developed to address violence, harassment.
It was recommended that the report be presented to the City Council for Council to consider rezoning at a public hearing.
The motion was carried unanimously and the report will be brought to the City Council.
