Planning, Zoning, and Building Department
We will create the ultimate model of Tribal planning and development by utilizing the highest quality professional practices. We will formulate processes that involve the Tribal community by promoting community out-reach, consensus and inter-governmental alliances.
We will utilize our resources to gather planning data that is relevant, highly accurate and useable. We will employ dedicated planning professionals who will use their skills to provide comprehensive and strategic planning that anticipates the needs and visions of the Tribe. We will maintain the support of Tribal leadership by providing trustworthy and reliable plans and recommendations."
The Planning Department has 3 main areas of responsibility: Planning, which includes land use, transportation, facility development, and other types of planning along with computer mapping (GIS); Zoning, which includes administering the LTBB Zoning Ordinance; and Building, which includes administering the LTBB Building Codes, as well as assisting with the construction development process for Tribal projects like the new Fish Hatchery on Drier Road.
This year the department has been involved in several design and construction projects such as, Powwow Grounds Bathroom Building Shower Addition, Osborne Road Elders Building, Wah Was No De Ka Community Building, and the Murray Road Housing Infrastructure Workgroup.
