Discussion: Smart Meters

V3_stoon_smart_meter

Smart Meters are electronic meters that, once an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is added, can measure and record actual power usage and water usage and transmit that data wirelessly over a secure network to a central data management system.

The City is investigating the implementation of an appropriate AMI system for Saskatoon that would make both electricity and water meters 'smart'.

Smart meters would provide a number of benefits to customers and the City. Please view the Smart Meters information in the documents that are attached, then click on the "Topic" at the bottom to provide us with your comments. This discussion will be open until February 28, 2014. A summary of all comments received will be incorporated into a March 2014 Report to City Council

Your 2014 PROPERTY TAX NOTICE will look different when you receive it this May.

Citizen feedback is important to us. We invite your comments on the new format of the 2014 Property Tax Notice. Please note, for the purpose of the sample tax notice you are viewing here, all numbers are based on 2013 tax rates.

Have a Look!
  • Do you find this new format easier to read?
  • Does this new format seem less complicated?
  • Is it clear to you that the City collects property taxes on behalf of the School Boards, the City of Saskatoon, and Saskatoon Public Library?
  • Are you able to see how much you owe?
  • Are your payment options clear?
  • It is clear that you can find more information on our website or by calling us?

This Shaping Saskatoon discussion is also a great opportunity for you to tell us about other tax-related information you wish to see on our website. Are you able to find answers to your tax questions under “P” for Property Tax? As we undertake the development of our new website, your comments will help us give you better service.

We have included detailed information on what you will find on the 2014 Property Tax Notice, along with Frequently Asked Questions.

A major amendment to the Rosewood Neighbourhood Concept Plan is proposed to accommodate a number of changes to the east side of the neighbourhood. The amendment will provide for the inclusion of lands east of Zimmerman Road as an employment area consisting of commercial and light industrial land uses. Also proposed are changes to the layout and land use pattern of the eastern portion of the neighbourhood, including new opportunities for higher density residential and mixed use development along corridors. Roadway access to the neighbourhood from Highway 16, previously proposed to be via Rosewood Gate South, is now proposed for Zimmerman Road.

The proposed changes will add 152 acres to the neighbourhood, bringing the total area to 876 acres. The original concept plan, approved by City Council in 2008, projected a total neighbourhood population of 10,657 residents. The proposed amendment would result in approximately 11,890 residents.

Amendments to the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw related to this concept plan amendment are also proposed.

WHAT IS A NEIGHBOURHOOD CONCEPT PLAN?

Neighbourhood Concept Plans (NCPs) provide detailed neighborhood level land use plans for new neighbourhoods throughout the City of Saskatoon. NCPs supplement the Official Community Plan (OCP). An OCP provides the framework to define, direct, and evaluate development in the City of Saskatoon.

NCPs provide information about desired forms of land use, road design concepts, servicing, financing, and urban design intended for the neighbourhood.

The NCP process engages a broad range of stakeholders, including landowners, neighbouring residents, community groups, and development interests. Community consultation initiatives gather valuable feedback from stakeholders prior to finalizing the conceptual design of a new neighbourhood.

Through the years, as a neighbourhood is built out, changing circumstances may necessitate amendments to an NCP. For example, specific development proposals within a neighbourhood may not be consistent with the NCP, requiring further consideration and sometimes alteration to the existing approved NCP. These proposed amendments are taken back to the community for feedback prior to being submitted to City Council for final approval.
