Community planning is the topic of a workshop in Frontier in southwest Saskatchewan on January 20th.
Organized by the South of the Divide Conservation Action program, the workshop is free and open to everyone.
Shirley Bartz, a wildlife biologist with the South of the Divide Conservation plan and organizer, says balancing sustainable land use practices is critical to the continued viability of the economy and the well-being of everyone.
She says a community plan can be as specific or as generalized as the community prefers.
Dana Schmalz, the director of community planning services with the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities says official community plans are an important tool to guide growth and development in a municipality.
Schmalz will make a presentation at the workshop on January 20th.
The workshop will include presentations from Environment Canada, the ministry of agriculture, the Water Security Agency, and others.
