ABOUT THE PROJECT
The City of Calgary is revising its existing Integrated Pest Management Plan from 1998. The revised plan will produce Corporate-wide IPM policies and procedures managed by Calgary Parks. The document will contain:
- Principles and goals
- Policy statements
- Management procedures for implementing and monitoring the IPM program
Procedures will be limited to City-owned lands (i.e., will not include private, developer or Crown land); however, education- and outreach-related principles/goals and policy statements may apply beyond City-owned land boundaries.
Research and engagement is being conducted among expert and community stakeholders to gain insight into the best policies and procedures for managing pests. The City is committed to ensuring stakeholder feedback will meaningfully inform policy and procedures changes.
PROVIDE YOUR INPUT
For the purposes of this survey, pest means an animal, a plant or other organism that is injurious, noxious or troublesome, whether directly or indirectly, and an injurious, noxious or troublesome condition or organic function of an animal, a plant or other organism.
A What We Heard report from our stakeholder engagement will be shared in the coming months. Future engagement sessions with Calgarians are being planned for spring 2018.
