Starting in 2015, engagements with Albertans helped to develop the draft Livingstone-Porcupine Hills Land Footprint Management Plan. A number of information meetings and workshops were held with participants from multiple sectors and communities including:
- First Nations
- environment groups
The draft plan outlines a system to minimize the extent, duration and rate of cumulative footprint to achieve landscapes with healthy, functioning ecosystems that provide a range of benefits to communities and all Albertans.
In 2018, an online survey sought additional input from Albertans on the draft footprint plan.
In addition to the footprint plan, a draft Livingstone-Porcupine Hills Recreation Management Plan was prepared with stakeholder and First Nations input. The draft plan identifies recreation activities that can be pursued in the planned Public Land Use Zones and how these activities will be managed to provide appealing recreation experiences while safeguarding the natural and cultural heritage of these landscapes. The draft recreation plan provides strategic direction and detailed management direction that will guide operations.
In 2018, an online survey asked Albertans for feedback on the draft management plan.
