We encourage you to participate in phase 2 of the regional planning process. The workbook will be available until December 19, 2011. Glen will present an update on:

The South Saskatchewan Regional Plan
addresses the following areas:
• water – develop options for improving source water protection and other means to protect watershed integrity;
• economic development – examine how the region should develop, aiming for the long-term success of the agriculture, energy, forestry, tourism industries and other economic opportunities;
• conservation – identify, conserve and restore landscapes valued for their water security, ecological function and biodiversity, considering development implications;
• recreation and tourism management – improve management of recreation use on public lands, identify locations of lands with high value for recreation and tourism; and,
