Lethbridge:   You are being encouraged to give input on recommendations from an advisory Council for the southern Alberta regional plan, under the Land-use Framework. 

  The South Saskatchewan Regional Advisory Council recommended the regional plan focus on water supply, conservation and economic development.  However, Sustainable Resource Development Minister Mel Knight wants your feedback on that recommendation.  He notes, " This is a busy landscape -- we're attracting 60,000 new people a year".

 You can take a look at the Regional Advisory Council recommendation and give your input through an on-line workbook, by going to  The deadline to submit your feedback is December 19th.
