EDMONTON — The Alberta government has released its plan for communities faced with rebuilding after extensive flooding last month in the province’s south.
Regional co-ordinators in each of the affected communities are to address four key recovery aspects.
The goals include supporting flood victims, nurturing economic growth, restoring infrastructure and re-establishing and protecting the environment.
The recovery framework is intended as a guide for intermediate and long-term efforts.
Premier Alison Redford says in a release the government knows rebuilding efforts will take years — not weeks or months.
The plan was developed by a flood recovery task force that Redford named shortly after torrential rains caused rivers in much of southern Alberta to overflow.
