Agency History

The South Peace River Regional Planning Commission was formed when the Peace River Regional Planning Commission, responsible for all of northwestern Alberta, was divided in half–with the dividing line being the Peace River. In 1995, the commission was dissolved, and each county, municipality or municipal district became responsible for its own planning.

Scope and Content

The fonds consists of two scrapbooks of news clippings about the South Peace Regional Planning Commission; two atlases showing the regional planning commisssion boundaries; a 1972 document titled “Patterns for the Future” published by the Peace River Regional Planning Commission; a 1973 copy of “The Preliminary Regional Plan” published by the Peace River Regional Planning Commission; and copies of periodicals produced by the South Peace Regional Planning Commission: the Regional Review from 1983 to 1986, and Printed Matters from 1986-1989.
