Presently, the Colville Tribes are in the developmental stage of producing a Comprehensive Plan for the reservation. This Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan), will be the official policy document for the Colville Tribes and will be incorporated into future decision making to achieve the community's vision and goals.
All stakeholders will have a hand in developing this comprehensive plan; tribal departments, regional governments, tribal leadership, and most importantly, the tribal membership.
Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (2016-2020)
In conjunction with the development of a Comp Plan, CCT Planning will also be developing the new CEDS document for 2016-2020. The Planning Department is partially funded through an Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant, and an element of this grant is the production of four-year plans for the Colville Indian Reservation.
The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is produced by CCT Planning, with input from the community, regional stakeholders (regional planning organizations in Ferry and Okanogan Counties), and incorporates demographic and other data into a plan for economic development for the region. The CEDS summarizes the area’s economy, provides geographic and demographic information, identifies potentials and constraints with development and outlines specific goals to improve economic development throughout the reservation.
The present CEDS (2012-2016) is available for review below
Capital Facilities Plan
A vital element of CCT's forthcoming Comprehensive Plan is a Capital Facilities Plan (CFP). CCT Planning developed a draft Plan that inventoried existing facilities, identified unmet needs and surveyed the community on what capital improvements they want to see in the future. The draft is based on a GMA approach to Capital Planning, and with future CFP updates CCT Planning endeavors to fill a number of shortcomings with the existing document.
