City of Saskatoon Neighbourhoods

Hampton Village is a residential neighborhood within the Confederation Suburban Development Area of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Hampton Village is the first suburb designed on Saskatoon's west side to be modelled after the village concept. The residential area is constructed around the village centre consisting of shops, services and amenities for residential living, with walking trails radiating outward from the central core.[1] This suburb has some detached homes and condominiums sold, and in 2008, there are still several areas still under construction. According to MLS data, the average sale price of a home as of 2013 was $368,790.[2]

The land on which Hampton Village sits was annexed over a period of many years. The western half (west of Junor Avenue) was annexed in July 1979, while the eastern half wasn't annexed until May 2000. Some remnant lots along the southern portion of the community rest on lands annexed by the city between 1911 and 1977.

Government and politics[edit]

Hampton Village exists within the federal electoral district of Saskatoon--Wanuskewin. It is currently represented by Maurice Vellacott.[3]

Provincially, the area is within the constituency of Massey Place. It is currently represented by the Honourable Cam Broten.[4][5]

In Saskatoon's non-partisan municipal politics, Hampton Village lies within ward 4. It is currently represented by Myles Heidt.[6] Due to population rise since the 2006 census, the city wards are being remapped.

She's asking the province to allow Saskatoon to use other population estimates in drawing ward boundaries to capture residential development thats happened since 2006, particularly in Stonebridge, the Willows, and Hampton Village.

— Janice Mann City clerk, and municipal wards commission.[7]
