As part of our mission, we look for ways to communicate more effectively with our community members. We hope you’ll take a minute to read our updates and let us know what you think.

COMMUNITY LAND USE PLANNING
The Community Land Use Plan will create policy statements for how land can be used in
different areas of the community for both development and protection.
The plan will contain a set of maps and documents recording the vision of the community.
DOCUMENTS & RESOURCES
A review of past and current planning work and community development initiatives has
identified several issues the Kitsumkalum Community Land Use Plan will likely need to address
and consider with the community.
Some questions for the land use plan to consider are:
What should be done with vacant lots and abandoned houses?
Where to locate new facilities, and what facilities to prioritize?
What about flood risk and climate change?
In 2017, we established a Land Management Committee to guide land code development and land use planning. Currently, this Committee is made up of eight community members interested in land and resource management in the community.
The Land Management Committee will play a vital role in the creation and implementation of our Community Land Use Plan. The committee has developed a set of guiding principles for land and resource management on Kitsumkalum reserve lands, which will inform how we approach this project.
Kitsumkalum Land Management Committee
Our Land Management Committee is a dedicated group of community members that are devoted to how our lands and resources should be used, managed, and conserved to meet the needs and values of our community.
