The Comprehensive Community Plan is the expression of the Nuchatlaht people and leadership on what we see as of paramount importance for moving ahead into the future. It defines our vision and values for ourselves and our environment, and strategies for continuing to build a vibrant, successful and happy community.
Comprehensive community planning focuses on working with a community to develop a common vision for the future based on the expressed values of the people. Once clear vision and values are defined, the community works through broad goals for the future, with specific strategies for making the goals a reality.
Our strong traditions and culture support us through generations to be a healthy, safe, and loving people, where everyone is treated with respect. We work together for our common good and share our skills and knowledge to be an empowered, educated, self-governing, and happy community.
Empowerment and transparency was identified by the community as a major value to focus on throughout the CCP process. Core values were discussed in depth in our community meetings and are represented by the following keywords:
Empowerment, Communication/Transparency, Families, Unity, Health, Healing and Support, Leadership, Generations, Cohesive Community, Stewardship, Equality, Welcoming, Respect, Unique People, Unique Language, Learning from Mistakes and Successes, Humor, Inclusive/Input from Everyone, Strengthening Tradition and Traditional Knowledge, Supporting Personal Development, and Safety.
