This plan is the first stepping-stone to articulate our community’s vision to lead us forward, united as Sqilxʷ people. It gives us a voice, and guides our leadership in making the best decisions for our community. By gathering the visions and aspirations of our community, it will now lead us steadily towards planning for our land. The Comprehensive Community Plan will be updated and revised and is based on the collective vision for the Penticton Indian Band. The principle functions of this Comprehensive Community Plan are to:
- Establish goals, directions and broad development strategies to guide the future growth of the Penticton Indian Band
- Provide policy guidance for development, programs, budgets, actions and services
- Provide a basis for coordinating general land use decisions
- Provide a degree of certainty for Penticton Indian Band community members and the surrounding municipalities and governments
