Management Plan Review
What’s a management plan?
Fort St. James National Historic Site Management Plan Review, Summer 2011© Parks Canada
A management plan is forward-looking document that provides a vision for the national historic site at its future best and the strategies for getting there.
We need your help! That’s because a management plan is more than a document. It is a part of every Canadian’s legacy and Parks Canada’s commitment to protect, manage and plan for the future of Canada’s special heritage areas.
Why get involved?
Parks Canada is accountable to you. Your values and views are at the core of every management plan. And that’s why we need to hear from you. Your input will help provide the direction needed to deliver on Parks Canada’s mandate of protection, education and the visitor experience.
Why review the plan?
Each national historic site managed by Parks Canada has a management plan that is reviewed every five years, with input and involvement from partners, stakeholders and the public, to ensure that the plan remains valid and effective.
The review of the 2002 Fort St. James National Historic Site Management Plan began with an assessment of the State of the Site in 2008, which identified key issues to be addressed in the development of the new plan. The new plan will build on the sound direction and implementation actions of the 2002 plan.
The review process has a focused timeline in order to ensure that the new management plan is completed by Spring 2012. We invite your ideas, comments and suggestions throughout the review process. The planning team will consider your feedback in drafting the management plan.
How do I get involved?
The draft management plan is now available for public review and comment. You can find out more about the draft plan and offer your feedback by attending our Open House on April 19. Please see Newsletter #2 for more details. Your comments on the draft plan are welcome until May 11, 2012.
