EcoPlan worked with Animbiigoo Zaagi’igan Anishinaabek (AZA) First Nation on developing their Comprehensive Community Plan and Land Use Plan for their reserve at Partridge Lake. The formerly landless First Nation received Partridge Lake only in 2008.
Just one year after completing the two plans (both of which were recognized with a Canadian Institute of Planners Award of Planning Excellence in Aboriginal Planning and Development), AZA completed the first structure at Partridge Lake — a community pavilion and picnic shelter.
The pavilion hosted it’s first community picnic this Aboriginal Day (June 21st). Over time, the pavilion will be enclosed and become a year-round community hub to be used for AZA celebrations and activities. Congratulations to our friends at Partridge Lake!
