Residents can get informed about the future of the Shuswap River watershed.
The Regional District of North Okanagan is coordinating the development of a sustainability plan for the watershed and public information meetings will be held March 2 at 9 a.m. at the Lumby Curling Club and March 16 at 9 a.m. at the Enderby Drill Hall.
“The public information meetings will provide a forum for people to review the five goals, 19 objectives and key strategies that were developed by the working groups to provide direction for the sustainable management of the Shuswap River watershed,” said Laura Frank, sustainability co-ordinator.
“We encourage all community members who are interested in the future sustainability and management of the Shuswap River watershed to come and provide their input on the recommendations that will form the basis of the watershed plan as well as identify their top priorities for implementation.”
The purpose of the planning process is to create a common long-term vision for the management of the Shuswap River watershed and to develop a comprehensive plan that will guide agencies and the community in decision-making.
The information gathered at the public information meetings will help inform the development of the final plan and provide direction on priorities for implementation.
