Government Releases North Saskatchewan Regional Advisory Council (RAC) Report

Ensure that you have your say – please provide your input to the survey, deadline for input is May 4, 2018.

The Government of Alberta is currently in the process of developing a Regional Plan for the North Saskatchewan Region of Alberta. The plan will provide the policy integration, direction and clarity needed to help guide decisions that collectively reflect and support the needs and values of Albertans; it will help to achieve Alberta’s long-term economic, environmental, indigenous and social outcomes for the region.

Regional plans are a key element of the Land Use Framework (LUF), which was released in December 2008. The LUF establishes seven land-use regions and commits to the development of a regional plan for each. The next step in the planning process for the North Saskatchewan Regional Plan is the public release of the Recommendations Report from the North Saskatchewan Regional Advisory Council.

Established in 2014, the Regional Advisory Council was comprised of individuals with a cross-section of knowledge, experience, and perspective in the region who were appointed to develop recommendations to government on how to address the region’s issues and challenges. Advice from the RAC, in addition to feedback from the public and stakeholders, will guide development of the draft land use plan for this region.
