To gain an understanding of the current housing situation and develop targeted housing strategies, the City of Swift Current commissioned Associated Engineering to undertake the development of this housing plan. The plan was developed under the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation’s (SHC) recently announced Encouraging Community Housing Options (ECHO) funding program. The purpose and considerations of the plan as identified under the ECHO program are as follows:

  • Consider housing needs across the continuum
  • Identify priorities and targets
  • Identify strategies to meet priorities and targets
  • Anticipate housing needs for the next 15 years
  • Consider surrounding municipalities
  • Identify measures for determining success and how progress will be reported

The City’s Planning and Growth Department, as part of its Housing Plan, also identified the need to provide guidance for future residential infill development in the City of Swift Current’s mature areas. These residential infill guidelines are a companion document to the City of Swift Current’s Zoning Bylaw and are intended to be an appendix to the Official Development Plan as policy guidelines and performance expectations for infill projects, concept plans, and development proposals. This document is currently being reviewed by City Council and approval is pending.
