Martensville endorses P4G draft regional plan

The City of Martensville has officially endorsed in principle the draft Partnership for Growth (P4G) regional plan.
Martensville city council adopted a resolution to that effect at its regular meeting on Tuesday, September 5.
Martensville is one of five municipalities within the P4G partnership. The others are Warman, Osler, Corman Park and Saskatoon. Similar motions of endorsement of the P4G plan are expected to come before these councils in the coming weeks.
“It’s been a long process,” said Martensville Mayor Kent Muench in an interview following the council vote. “There have been a number of open houses, people have seen the land use map and the regional plan, and there’s been a lot of discussion on this.
“It’s never an easy thing to have five diverse municipalities all working together to achieve mutually-beneficial goals, and I think we’ve achieved something very substantial here.” Continue reading “Martensville endorses P4G draft regional plan”
