As part of the Vacant Lot & Adaptive Re-Use Strategy, the City of Saskatoon maintains a comprehensive inventory of undeveloped land, which also includes surface parking lots. All lands that fall into these “undeveloped” categories is considered vacant. For more information about brownfield legislation, environmental assessment and remediation, challenges that may present themselves and how to overcome them please see Redeveloping Brownfields in Saskatoon: A Guidebook. The book also illustrates successful brownfield redevelopment projects that have been recently undertaken in Saskatoon.
The inventory includes the following information about vacant sites:
- Civic Address
- Site Area
- Zoning Designation
- Legal Land Description
The inventory is limited only to established neighbourhoods (infill sites only), and excludes any sites that are considered to be undevelopable (e.g. walkways, right-of-ways, and other residual parcels). The inventory also excludes all ownership information. This is to ensure compliance with Federal and Provincial privacy legislation.
The public Vacant Lot Inventory will be regularly updated following the internal update of the property use information as part of the property assessment cycle.
Disclaimer: The City of Saskatoon provides the following records for reference only. IT IS NOT INTENDED AS A LIST OF PROPERTIES FOR SALE or as a development opportunity. Using available records at the time, the sites are assumed to have no permanent structures on them and the site may or may not be available or suitable for re-development purposes.
Not all properties listed here have necessarily been vacant for the 48 consecutive months required to be eligible for the Vacant Lot and Adaptive Re-Use Incentive Program. While this inventory is provided as a reference for all vacant infill sites, properties that are actually eligible for incentives will vary. Contact the Neighbourhood Planning Section at975-7642 to confirm how long a property has been vacant. Contact 975-2776 for purchasing City-owned lots. (Updated July 2014)
