The City of Martensville is a fast-growing, family-oriented community located 18km north of Saskatoon. The city retained Crosby Hanna & Associates to lead a comprehensive community planning process. Martensville has been one of the fastest growing communities in Canada over the past decade, and identified the need to manage and direct growth in a way that would enhance community connectivity, land use mix, walking areas, and the creation of a central commercial area. Today, Martensville enjoys the development of a central mixed-use park area and has designated its major east-west collector street for infill commercial and increased residential densities. The city plan also embraces “smart growth” principles and new residential areas of the city are currently being developed at a density 41 percent greater than previously developed areas.
