Saanichton Village Design Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The District of Central Saanich is reaching out to the community as we begin developing a design plan for Saanichton Village.

The plan will help guide future developments and investments in the area to support a well-planned neighbourhood.

We want to know what you think about the look, feel, and function of the village, as well as how it can be enhanced over the long term through the design of buildings, public spaces, and transportation routes for pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles.
