A trio of business organizations in Fort McMurray are putting their pitch to Council tomorrow night on the best ways to tackle the socio-economic issues of the region.

The Fort McMurray Chamber of Commerce, Fort McMurray Real Estate Board, and Urban Development Institute Wood Buffalo have collaborated on a report called "Protecting the Investment in Our Future," and presented it in Edmonton last week.

It's a follow up to the Radke Report, which was issued by then-Premier Ed Stelmach in 2006, offering recommendations on how to address the needs of a booming oil sands region.

The newly released report outlines three conditions for the oil sands to prosper, which range from keeping the cost of production globally competitive, to improving the quality of life.

As well, one of the report's recommendations is to re-start a government body called the Oil Sands Secretariat.
