The Sahtu Land Use Planning Board (SLUPB) is pleased to release its Opinion Paper: Sahtu Land Use Plan, The First 5 Years: A Look Back to Move Forward.
This document was prepared to communicate the SLUPB’s comprehensive review of the Sahtu Land Use Plan’s first 5 years of implementation as mandated under Section 50 of the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act.
The SLUPB has determined that amendments to the Sahtu Land Use Plan are needed. As a next step, the SLUPB is seeking written comments from interested parties on this document. The public comment period will run until July 27, 2018. Comments should be addressed to the SLUPB Chair and delivered to:
post: PO Box 235, Fort Good Hope, NT X0E 0H0
in person: SLUPB Office, Yamoga Building, Fort Good Hope, NT
Written comments received by this date will inform the scoping of an amendment process. The SLUPB intends to host an in person meeting with the MVRMA Approving Parties (The Sahtu Secretariat Incorporated, Government of the Northwest Territories, and Government of Canada) to discuss next steps. (Please note: that scheduling of next steps in the process are subject to change due to: staff turnover, member appointments, as well as availability of funding).
