Residents along the Shuswap River can play a role in the future of the resource.
The Regional District of North Okanagan is co-ordinating the development of a sustainability plan for the Shuswap River watershed. A public workshop will be held Saturday, Nov. 26 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Riverside Hall in Ashton Creek.
“At the Sharing Our Experiences workshop, we will be reporting back on phase one of the process, visioning and issue identification, including what we heard from the community and the results of the technical assessments,” said Anna Page, sustainability co-ordinator.
“The afternoon will be spent moving into phase two of the process, plan development.”
Residents are encouraged to take part in the process.
“We see this workshop as an excellent opportunity to share experiences and learn about all the great work community groups are already undertaking within the watershed,” said Herman Halvorson, RDNO chairperson and outgoing rural Enderby director.
After this workshop, working groups will be formed to develop policy recommendations on the key issues identified during the first phase of the planning process.
