St’át’imc Tribal Council Comprehensive Community Planning Review

Date: 2012

An association of ten communities located in southwestern BC close in and around Lillooet, BC, the St’át’imc Nation recently negotiated a settlement for the impacts of hydroelectric development on their traditional territories. EcoPlan was hired by the St’át’imc Trust Board through their trustee, Deloitte, to review the state of comprehensive community planning in each of the ten communities, identify planning gaps and opportunities, and explore the potential of developing a unique, comprehensive regional CCP that would link and coordinate the planning efforts of the Nation’s ten communities. Working with a local St’át’imc community planner, EcoPlan supported the project and facilitated project CCP training meetings and a final workshop with all ten communities.
