More about the Exhibition Local Area Plan

The City of Saskatoon’s Local Area Planning team is excited to announce the first LAP meeting for the Exhibition Area:
Wednesday, January 23rd
7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Seventh Day Adventist Christian School – Gymnasium (2228 Herman Avenue)
Treats and refreshments provided
Everyone is welcome!

The meeting will include more information about the benefits of LAPs and will begin discussions on what local stakeholders hope to achieve through the LAP process.

Local Area Planning is a community-based approach to developing comprehensive neighbourhood plans that enable residents, business owners, property owners, community groups, and other stakeholders to have direct input into the future of their neighbourhood.

Once completed, a LAP establishes the vision and goals to guide the growth and development of a neighbourhood.  It also identifies specific recommendations for improvements within a neighbourhood.

The study area boundary for the Exhibition LAP is Taylor Street to the North, Broadway Avenue to the East, Ruth Street (East of Lorne Avenue) and Circle Drive (West of Lorne Avenue) to the South, and the riverbank to the West (see attached study area map).

For further information on the LAP please visit as we will post regular updates on the project at this web page.

If you have any questions about the LAP, the LAP Process, or this meeting, please contact : Keith Folkersen, Senior Planner
