The idea of allowing developers to build a complex of four homes on a lot that had been used for just a single home is generating some debate in Saskatoon.  Currently Saskatoon allows duplexes as infill housing. There is a new idea to allow fourplexes as infill, on larger lots.

The city is considering a new set of regulations that would permit the construction of fourplex units as infill on lots in older neighbourhoods. It is being pitched as one way to bring new vitality to older parts of the city.

 

A corner lot, with a wide front, could hold enough space for a fourplex infill. The city is considering a policy change for that.

 

The city's strategy, if approved, would allow for a maximum of four units on corner lots that are at least 50 feet (or 15 metres) wide. The current policy would only allow for a duplex on such a lot.

 

"It's a matter of ensuring that there are enough people living in a neighbourhood to keep the neighbourhood active and vibrant," Saskatoon's planning and development department, explained.  “To have enough children going to the schools and people visiting local shops." 

 

Hey city planner this is why we a bus system to move about the city!

 

Let’s hope Regina does not follow the Saskatoon plan.  The statement of ensuring that there are enough people living in a neighbourhood to keep that area active and vibrant, what is the reasoning behind that, tell it like it is, the city just wants more tax money, the only way to get that is to either build higher or by jamming a four plex on a piece of land is the other option.
