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 support prioritizing Neyaashiinigmiing’s infrastructure needs by identifying key objectives from community input and providing recommendations based on engineering principles.
