Our golf tournament for the fall is today at the Willows starting at 1:45 p.m. The day has started out with rain and the last while has been like that so it is difficult to predict if the day will be good or not.

Speaker | Alan Wallace | Senior Planner with the City of Saskatoon

Alan says that in all his years he doesn't recall ever seeing the level of activity as we have incurred this year.

The City's present development plans are based upon the City growing to 400,000 people. 100 years ago 1906 - 1951 our growth was from almost nothing to 50,000 people, to 120,000 around 1968 to over 200,000 now. In the past, growth was based on more births than deaths. However, growth in the last while has been based on migration from other areas of Saskatchewan or Canada. Part of this came as the province moved from being more of an agricultural rural based population to an uban population. If we are going to grow in the future it needs to be through immigration from other countries such as Asia and the Middle East.

Alan Wallace reviewed various new areas that the city will be developing in the next several years.

City council has in the last few years been trying to return to balanced growth so that expansion will occur in the west side of the city instead of the east only. That is why many of the new neighbourhoods such as Blairmore and Hampton Village are planned for the west side.
