Community Highlights (2012): The Saskatchewan Ministry of First Nations and Metis Relations, with help of the Ministry of the Economy conducted a snapshot in 2012 of the key components of the community, including: local government, demographics, economic environment, training and education, infrastructure, housing, emergency services, recreational opportunities, and the community's distance from larger centres.
Wildfire Risk Assessment (2005): The Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment actively attempts to educate residents about the threat of fire within municipalities. They conducted an assessment of each municipality to determine the likelihood of wildfires, and implement FireSmart principles to help reduce the chances of wildfires starting.
Community Planning Study (1980): The Hamlet of Turnor Lake has not completed an Official Community Plan through the Planning for Growth Northern Program, but there is a Community Planning Study that was completed back in 1980 by Hilderman, Feir, Witty and Associates. This document was approved by the Community Planning Branch and outlines the direction of development within the community.
