The Community Values Study will be considered in developing future plans around the Kootenay Lake, in order to ensure that the plan meets the needs and interests of the community that will ultimately live with and support the future of a Lake Management Plan. The Kootenay Lake Community Values study will help to strengthen social, economic, and environmental well-being in the Kootenay Lake area.
The Kootenay Lake Community Values Study will provide the third and final element needed to develop a comprehensive Kootenay Lake Management Plan. The plan will allow community members and regulatory agencies to be better informed on the ecological, First Nations, and community values across federal, provincial, regional, and municipal jurisdictions.
WE WANT EVERYONE TO BE INVOLVED!
