Coldwater Indian Band Comprehensive Community Plan and Land Use Plan
EcoPlan worked with Coldwater First Nation on a Comprehensive Community Plan and Land Use Plan to guide decision-making and lands management in the community’s future development. While completed in little over six months (comparable projects typically lasting 12 to 18 months), the project still included significant community-based and paced, including three community open houses, two youth forums, a community survey, a session with Chief and Council, and multiple meetings with the CCP Planning Team made of Coldwater staff departmental managers. The CCP includes a prioritized list of actions including quick-starts, foundational actions, and medium and long-term actions. The final plans were approved by an overwhelming majority of members at the Annual General Meeting in the fall, and accepted by Band Council Resolution the following week.
