Tzeachten Comprehensive Community Plan – Community Survey

This is a call for Tzeachten Membership to participate in the development of a Comprehensive Community Plan.

What is a Comprehensive Community Plan?

  • A Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) is a document collaboratively developed to assist our community in embracing change and planning for a better future. A CPP addresses key planning areas, all of which are interrelated and interdependent. The CCP process will enable our community to build a roadmap to sustainability, self-sufficiency and improved governance capacity.

Please take 10-15 minutes to fill out the Community Survey. The survey will help to inform the Comprehensive Community Plan. Click on the link below:
