The Saskatoon Speaks Community Vision is now complete. The Community Vision document summarizes community perspectives that emerged from Saskatoon Speaks. It captures shared values and aspirations, along with the community’s vision and potential strategies related to eight inter-related themes including Social Well-Being; Parks, Recreation, and Community Safety; Arts and Culture; Moving Around; Shaping Growth; The City Centre; The Environment; and The Economy. A copy of the Community Vision document is available here.
Thank you to all the citizens who participated in Saskatoon Speaks to shape our future. Between 7,000 and 10,000 citizens representing a full spectrum of Saskatoon’s diverse population were involved over eight months.
Saskatoon Speaks, Shape Our Future, was a community visioning process where citizens told us what matters to them, what they value about Saskatoon, what they want to improve, and what they aspire to achieve as Saskatoon grows over the next 50 – 70 years.
The Community Vision described in the final Vision Document will provide input into the Strategic Plan, as well as other City plans, such as the Culture Plan and City Centre Plan, to ensure the plans align with broad community values and goals.
The purpose of this document is not just limited to City initiatives. It is up to our entire community to shape our future. We encourage other organizations and agencies that play a role in building a great city to find ways that align with the vision.
For the City and citizens, Saskatoon Speaks was the beginning of an ongoing process of planning collaboratively for growth and change. As new initiatives are undertaken, the City will continue to engage the community and encourage public input, building on the success of Saskatoon Speaks.
