Draft South Saskatchewan Regional Plan Information Session

January 13, 2014 - 11:30pm to January 14, 2014 - 1:00am

From the EVDS website:

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) and EVDS will host an information session to encourage public feedback on a plan intended to balance the environmental, economic, and cultural well-being of the province.

In October 2013 the Government of Alberta released the draft for the South Saskatchewan Regional Land-use Plan (SSRP). Public feedback is now being encouraged. Once the plan has been finalized it will determine how lands and water are managed in this region for decades to come.

The SSRP region contains a diversity of ecosystems including grasslands, foothills and mountains. The region supports forested headwaters which provide clean water and flood regulation as well as imperiled native prairie grasslands, habitat for rare wildlife, and provide endless recreational opportunities. These resources also support thousands of jobs and families.

To help people understand SSRP and how to participate in the development of the final plan, CPAWS will present an overview of the draft plan and communicate their main conservation concerns. They will also explore a variety of ways members of the community can express their views on the plan to the Government of Alberta.

This is the last chance for Albertans to speak up on the plan. Come out and get informed so that you can make your voice heard.
