The Fort Air Partnership (FAP) gave an update to council about its future plans.
At Tuesday's (Mar.13) council meeting, FAP executive director Nadine Blaney spoke about Vision 2030, a long-term strategy for the region.
Fort Air Partnership is using input from government, industry and the public to map out its future activities and development.
Stakeholders made several recommendations to Fort Air during the Vision 2030 consultation process. These include getting information about air quality in front of more people, putting more time into education and outreach and adopting new types of air monitoring.
"We're in the stages of going through all of the input we received," said Blaney. "We have to go through and determine what is feasible, what we can resource and then that will be developed into an action plan in the near future."
FAP's total budget for 2018 is just over $1.6 million. The direct operating costs for each station are about $60,000 a year.
A 2017 survey showed that air quality remains a top concern to many people and that the public is eager for information about the air they breathe.
Fort Air operates nine monitoring stations in the region. Live 24-hour air quality data is available here.
