March 17 – Melanie Norwegian will be facilitating discussions on the Comprehensive Community Planning starting at 1:00 p.m. today until March 31st. JMRFN will be providing the following to those who participate: meals; door prizes and $150 honorarium for each session attended. Comprehensive Community Planning is an ongoing process that enables a community to plan its development in a way that meets its needs and aspirations in all aspects of community life. CCP can include, but is not limited to, areas such as: Governance; Land & Resources; health; Infrastructure Development; Culture; Social; Education and Economy. A major goal could be the construction of new community facilities such as a band office, gym, school, refit Elders’ home and fitness centre. A priority could be the health of the community (traditional medicines). In addition, there could also be the need to address education and training. Come out and participate as this is an excellent opportunity for community members to have a say in our community’s future.
