Tribal members to help develop plan for future

Written by 

Two outreach sessions for members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians to develop a 10-year “legacy plan” for tribal lands, environment and natural resources have been setup by the tribe’s Natural Resources Department.

The sessions will be conducted on two dates:

• March 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for Snowbird/Cherokee County at the Robbinsville High School cafeteria.

• March 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for Cherokee at the Fairground Multipurpose Building.

Participants, through facilitated discussions, will have an opportunity to voice their visions and concerns, and also review the results of a community survey and youth/elders meetings conducted in late 2010.  

Staff from the Natural Resources Department will provide a storyboard presentation on the status of the plan, and on how tribal members’ voices will become part of that vision. Refreshments will be provided. 828.497.1898.
