Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority has released the draft policy for regulating non-provincially significant wetlands and is encouraging public comment. On December 7, 2016, the MVCA Board of Directors reviewed a draft policy for regulating all wetlands. The development of the policies are part of a Board of Directors approved implementation strategy to apply the regulations as intended to non-provincially significant wetlands. The implementation also required that the proposed polices related to non-provincially significant wetlands be circulated to planning staff of member municipalities and that the policies be posted on the MVCA website for public review and comment.
The commenting period is now over. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.
