Over the past year and a half we have been working with the community to develop a new Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP). A draft plan is now available for our members to review.
If you have any comments, questions or concerns please contact that band office and provide them in writing. The process and timeline moving forward is outlined below:
- Deadline for comments and feedback by May 30, 2015
- Chief and Council to consider and feedback
- Revisions to CCP (if necessary)
- Chief and Council to formally adopt final CCP.
What is the Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP)?
A Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) is an overarching and holistic plan that is developed by and for the community. A CCP focuses on nation building and community development by addressing a wide range of planning themes – see Figure 1.
This CCP helps us – the Saulteau First Nations (SFN) – to identify our vision for the future, core values, and top priorities. It also identifies a framework for us to achieve our vision through a set of clearly defined steps.
Part 1: Introduction
This part provides an overview of the planning process and introduces the ‘guiding principles’ that have been followed in developing our CCP.
Part 2: Community Overview
This part provides a general community overview which provides the context and foundation of our CCP.
Part 3: Nation Building
This outlines our framework for nation building. This framework includes a series of vision statements that address the full spectrum of planning themes (see Figure 1). It also identifies a series of strategic goals and actions to help us realize our vision.
Part 4: Community Development
This part focuses on our reserve lands. It outlines our 20 year land use plan for IR #169 and includes preliminary concepts and policies to guide future development.
Part 5: Implementation
This describes how it will our CCP will be implemented moving forward. It also outlines how it will be reviewed and updated over time.
