Background:
The Government of Alberta is actively working on a land use framework for the South Saskatchewan River Basin to support effective and sustainable use of the land by all users. Information on this process is available here:
https://www.landuse.alberta.ca/RegionalPlans/SouthSaskatchewanRegion/SSRPPlanning/Pages/default.aspx

RMDRA has actively engaged the Land Use Secretariat and provided feedback and advice regarding access for all OHVs and particularly ORM use and access. In cooperation with other Southern Alberta ORM and OHV groups including LMC, Quad Squad, AOHVA we met with the LUS and the Assistant Deputy Minister to advocate for sustainable OHV and ORM access within the region.

THE DRAFT PLAN:
Release of the Draft of the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan is expected in the first part of September, with private and public consultations planned throughout the fall months. When released, a copy of the Draft document will be placed in this thread for downloading and discussion.

This is a great opportunity to have a direct audience with representatives of the Provincial Government and engage productively on achieving the access we need to grow Off Road Motorcycling. Please tell your friends and come out in force to strengthen our voice in the land use planning process!
