Share Your Views on a Plan for the Lower Athabasca Region

Posted October 6, 2010 by LSC

Alberta’s Land-Use Framework

The Land-use Framework is the government’s response to growth pressures in a changing Alberta. The framework establishes seven new land-use regions and the requirement to develop a regional plan for each.

With these regional plans, Alberta will achieve a better balance between the economic development that creates opportunity and the environmental and social values of Albertans.

Work has begun for the first two regions, Lower Athabasca and South Saskatchewan, with regional advisory councils appointed for each. Public consultations about the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan ran throughout September 2010.

Share Your Views

There is still time to provide your input. If you haven’t already sent in your thoughts on the Lower Athabasca Regional Advisory Council’s advice to the government regarding the north-east area of the province, we urge you to do so now. You only have until October 8, 2010 at 4:30 p.m.

Please visit the Land-use Framework website to read the Council’s advice to the Government of Alberta Regarding a Vision for the Lower Athabasca Region, and tell us what you think of the conservation areas, multi-use corridors, recreation areas and so much more by filling out the online workbook.

This is a chance to have your voice heard about the future of the province. If you have any questions, please contact LUF@gov.ab.ca.
