History

A 1913 map shows that the present-day Nutana Suburban Centre was a registered subdivision named Utopia. [3] The land however, was not annexed until the period between 1955 and 1959. [4] Development did not begin in earnest until the 1960s, when adjacent neighbourhoods like Brevoort Park and Eastview emerged. Home construction was most active between 1961 and 1980, but has continued at a steady pace to the present day due to a number of older buildings being replaced by new tower developments.

Nutana SC was unique in that it was the first post-World War II neighbourhood to combine high-density housing with schools, businesses and civic facilities. This "suburban centre" concept would be repeated in later years with the development of the Lawson Heights, Confederation, Lakewood, University Heights and Blairmore suburban centres.

Walter Murray Collegiate Institute, a public secondary school, opened in 1962. Holy Cross High School followed shortly after in 1963. Market Mall opened in 1966 as Saskatoon's first enclosed shopping mall.

In 1966 a hospital was planned for Taylor Street east of Arlington Avenue, but it was ultimately never built. [5]

Government and politics

Nutana SC exists within the federal electoral district of Saskatoon—Grasswood. It is currently represented by Kevin Waugh of the Conservative Party of Canada, first elected in 2015. [6]

Provincially, the area is divided by Arlington Avenue into the constituencies of Saskatoon Churchill-Wildwood and Saskatoon Eastview. [7] Saskatoon Churchill-Wildwood is currently represented by Lisa Lambert of the Saskatchewan Party since 2016. Saskatoon Eastview is currently represented by Corey Tochor of the Saskatchewan Party since 2011. [8]

In Saskatoon's non-partisan municipal politics, Nutana SC lies within ward 9. It is currently represented by Councillor Bev Dubois since 2016. [9]

Nutana SC is a part of the east division of the Saskatoon Police Service's patrol system. [13] Saskatoon Fire & Protective Services' east division covers the neighbourhood. [14] Transit services to Nutana SC are provided by Saskatoon Transit on routes No. 1 (Wildwood - Westview), 6 (University - Market Mall), 12 (River Heights - Market Mall), and 16 (University - Market Mall). Market Mall is a major transit hub on Saskatoon's east side. [15]

Nutana SC's primary commercial hub is Market Mall, which opened in 1966 as Saskatoon's first enclosed shopping mall and has undergone numerous expansions over the years; as of 2014 it has only one anchor tenant, Canada Safeway, following the closure of its Zellers location. Additional businesses, primarily of the service variety but also including a bowling alley, are on the east end of Louise Street. In addition, there are 3 home-based businesses in the neighbourhood.
