Land Use Plan & Capital Infrastructure Plan Community Meeting June 3, 2021
Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation are developing a Land Use Plan and Capital Infrastructure Plan for the community. Both plans will establish a vision for the future of our community and a path to get there. We have hired two consulting firms to support this project: Neegan Burnside Ltd and Shared Value Solutions.
The purpose of this virtual community meeting is to focus on the Land Use Plan and:
- Discuss what the consulting team has heard from members so far, as captured in the Community Engagement Narrative, summarized here; and
- Present key land use planning issues raised by members and identify some options for feedback and input.
Virtual Community Meeting Details
A virtual Community Meeting will be held on Thursday, June 3rd, 2021 at 7:00 PM to share the project progress and generate input on key issues that will guide the Land Use Plan. Come to share your thoughts or ask questions!
All community members are welcome and encouraged to attend virtually.
The Community Forum will also be streamed live on our YouTube channel.
About the Land Use Plan
The Land Use Plan will guide future planning on the surveyed reserve lands (#27 Neyaashiinigmiing), Cape Croker Hunting Grounds, and the 69-acre vacant parcel undergoing the Additions to Reserve process (Lots 61-63 Con 3E & Lots 61-62 Con 4 East, Neyaashiinigmiing). It will consider the environment, species at risk, areas used for cultural purposes that allow Neyaashiinigmiing to plan for future development while protecting what is important.
The Land Use Plan scheduled to be completed between December 2020 and July 2021.
About the Capital Infrastructure Plan
The Capital Infrastructure Plan will identify ways to address infrastructure challenges, such as housing, water treatment and distribution, wastewater treatment and disposal, solid waste management, roads and drainage, and communications. This Plan will help prioritize Neyaashiinigmiing’s infrastructure needs by identifying key objectives from community input and providing recommendations based on engineering principles.
The Capital Infrastructure Plan is scheduled to be completed between April 2021 and November 2021.
