The province has launched another round of consultation on the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan and it will include a Red Deer stop.

Alberta has been divided into seven regions as part of the initiative to create a road map for future land use.

South Saskatchewan Region is the second of the plans that will be developed based on the province’s major watersheds.

The Alberta government approved the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan, for Alberta’s oilsands region, in August and it came into effect on Sept. 1.

Covering nearly 84,000 square km, the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan covers a region south of the northern boundaries of the Municipal Districts of Bighorn and Rocky View, and Wheatland, Newell and Cypress Counties.

Regional Advisory Councils have been established in each land-use region to gather public input. The latest round of consultations is to review the South Saskatchewan council’s recommendations.

Twenty community sessions have been organized, mostly in Southern Alberta, from Nov. 6 to Dec. 6. Red Deer’s session takes place on Nov. 6 at the Sheraton Hotel Red Deer from 4 to 8 p.m.
