Amisk-Atik Land Use Plan Finally Completed

The provincial government has put the finishing touches on a land use plan for a forested area in northeastern Saskatchewan.


The land involved covers 4.4 million hectares in size and stretches from Amisk Lake in the south to Reindeer Lake in the north.


The senior land use planner for Saskatchewan Environment, Bob Reed, says five years of work have gone into the document in an effort to improve communication between users of the land, industry groups and government.


He feels the plan provides innovative methods for working out various problems and letting each of the

stakeholders determine how the land can best be used.


Reed says the plan wouldn’t have been possible without input from the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation and the various other advisory boards.


An official ceremony to mark its completion took place this afternoon in Creighton.
