Flood Plain (1:500)

The "Statements of Provincial Interest", as established by the Province of Saskatchewan, requires cities to recognize the 1:500 flood plain within their municipal legislation, including their Official Community Plans. As such, in cooperation with the Ministry of Government Relations, the City of Prince Albert has developed a number of policies that will minimize and mitigate the impact on property located within the 1:500 flood plain.
