Canada : Help build the North Saskatchewan Regional Plan

Mar 08, 2018 (Euclid Infotech Ltd via COMTEX) --

Albertans are invited to provide their input on how land in the North Saskatchewan Region will be used and managed.

Public feedback will help the Alberta government develop the final North Saskatchewan Regional Plan (NSRP), which will ensure government policies guide natural resource development, support local economic growth, enhance recreation opportunities, respect traditional Indigenous land use and protect the environment.

The North Saskatchewan Region is home to about 1.5 million Albertans, as well as Albertas Industrial Heartland, some of the best farmland in the world, foothills and mountains with immense recreation opportunities, and prized headwaters that supply drinking water to many communities. It is important that Albertans are engaged in building a plan for the region that is good for the environment, good for the economy and good for Albertans. Shannon Phillips, Minister of Environment and Parks

NSRP will be the third regional plan developed under Albertas Land-use Framework.

To help develop the draft plan, a regional advisory council made up of 27 Albertans was appointed in 2014 to provide independent, strategic advice, analysis and options to government. The council provided 69 recommendations to government in six topic areas.
