Want to have your say in how Saskatoon should grow its green network? 

As the city develops, the question of how green infrastructure can be weaved into the urban fabric while mitigating impacts, needs to be addressed.

Through a combination of research and public engagement, the City has identified 15 Emerging Priorities that are proposed to shape a vision for the future desired state of Saskatoon’s Green Network. We now are looking for input to determine which of the proposed Emerging Priorities residents prefer to see included in Desired State Vision.

SURVEY DEADLINE: Tuesday, August 6, 2019.
