Have your say on advice for southern Alberta regional plan

Albertans are being asked for their input on the recommendations from an advisory council for the southern Alberta regional plan, under the Land Use Framework.
The South Saskatchewan Regional Advisory Council recommended that the regional plan focus on issues like water supply, conservation needs and economic development.
Albertans now have a say on this advice.
The recommendations and an on-line workbook are available at
The deadline to submit a workbook is Dec. 19. The government will conduct public sessions on the advice in southern Alberta next fall.
“The individuals who sat on the advisory council know southern Alberta and the challenges in that region, and their recommendations underline that we need long-term, co-ordinated planning to balance the need for growth, jobs and conservation,” Sustainable Resource Development Minister Mel Knight said. “We will take the advice and the input from Albertans and develop the draft regional plan.”
The South Saskatchewan Regional Plan was identified as a priority under Alberta’s Land Use Framework and is the second plan under development.
The government released the draft Lower Athabasca Regional Plan on April 5.
Community sessions to get feedback from Albertans are under way and continuing through May 19 in 14 Alberta communities.
