Public Consultations for the NSRP to Start Soon

Posted May 1, 2014 by LSC

This month the first phase of public consultation is being organized for the North Saskatchewan Regional Plan. You are invited you to attend the upcoming daytime or evening sessions to learn more about the region as well as share your thoughts on the issues and strategies contained in the Terms of Reference for Developing the North Saskatchewan Regional Plan. See the dates and locations below, which are subject to change.

The North Saskatchewan Region is located in central Alberta and has approximately 85,780 square kilometres, or just under 13 per cent of Alberta’s total land base. The region is bordered by Saskatchewan to the east, British Columbia to the west, the Upper Athabasca and the Lower Athabasca regions to the north and the South Saskatchewan and Red Deer regions to the south.

The purpose of regional planning is to support the numerous policies and strategies that guide natural resource development, support economic growth and protect our environment. Regional plans will integrate these policies and strategies at the regional level and provide the policy direction and clarity for decision makers at the federal, provincial and local levels.

Daytime and afternoon/evening sessions are being planned for the following communities. Stay tuned for more information about how you can RSVP to one of these workshops.
