The CCSP Department in collaboration with all Directors and Managers assist with the formulation of operational goals & objectives with the intent of fulfilling the Community Plan.
From 2009 to 2015 Adams Lake Indian Band (ALIB) developed a broad Comprehensive Community Strategic Plan (CCSP). The document is titled Swixweytec – Our Ancestral Voice. This document puts forth the community’s vision and priorities. It was presented to Membership March 2015 and ratified by Band Council Resolution in May 2015. This document also presents the strategic foundation for more detailed plans as they relate to the various departments within ALIB.

Update to Community Plan
The Band Office will create a 2nd Edition 5-year Strategic Plan (2016 to 2021) as to how we, as an organization, will operate by taking into consideration the aspirations of the community. The 5-Year Plan will help guide the development of ALIB’s financial plans and detailed department work plans for specific actions and timelines. The Band Council is guided, by this document, in its decision-making approach towards meeting the goals. The document is frequently reviewed in order to take stock of progress and to check how the document aligns with the overall plan. Goals, objectives, priorities and values are examined and reassessed and adjustments are made where necessary.

Where we are Today
Over the last two years the Community Plan has been instrumental in guiding the organization in implementing some of the more important community priorities. Many key initiatives are in various stages of planning, development and implementation. Some of the areas concentrated on include: governance; administration; infrastructure; community services; natural resources and sustainable development. Additional details of specific areas: how to fund key programs; develop and streamline policies and bylaws; refine and adjust administrative processes; append existing Band documents, such as the Land Use Plan, the Health Plan and the Capital Plan etc. The intent is that each project will work towards the fulfillment of the CCSP. The CCSP team will review, monitor and report how all work and activities are progressing at the annual CCSP information days.
