South Saskatchewan Regional Plan (SSRP) Information night at Calgary Area Outdoor Council

  • Date: December 17 2013
  • Location: Calgary Area Outdoor Council- Rocky Mountain Room, 1111 Memorial Drive NW
  • The Government of Alberta recently released the draft South Saskatchewan Regional Plan (SSRP) and is now gathering feedback from the public on the plan. The official last date for public feedback on the SSRP is looming (January 15).

    This plan is the outcome of a process of long-term land use planning for the lands and waters of the South Saskatchewan River Basin, located in the southern portion of Alberta. The South Saskatchewan Region is the most populated in Alberta, containing 45% of our population and our largest city, Calgary. The SSRP region includes foothills, mountains, forest headwaters of the southern Rocky Mountains and threatened native prairie grasslands; this region is important for Albertans, our water, wildlife and wilderness.

    The Calgary Area Outdoor Council is hosting an information night to learn about the SSRP, how it affects the outdoor recreation community, why outdoor enthusiasts should care about the plan and how you can give your feedback on the plan in a variety of ways.

    Speaking at the presentation will be Katie Morrison, CPAWS' conservation director, and Al Black of the Climbers Access Society of Alberta. A question and answer period will follow the presentation and light refreshments will be provided.

    No prior knowledge of land-use planning is required to attend this workshop!
