The Confederated Tribes Of The Colville Reservation

The Integrated Resource Management Plan (IRMP)

The IRMP is the Tribes’ plan for the management of natural resources on the Reservation. It provides goals and objectives that guide multiple uses of the Reservation forest, rangeland and water resources. These include tribal enterprises that generate revenue for the Tribes, habitat for fish and wildlife, and traditional cultural activities.

As part of the IRMP update, the Tribes' natural resource managers have compiled a Resource Assessment of the natural resources of the Colville Reservation. This document describes the current conditions of the Reservation resources and identifies management issues and concerns. The Executive Summary can be viewed with the following link:

CTCR Resource Assessment Executive Summary

The Tribes are currently working to update the IRMP to provide goals and objectives for the next 15 years. As part of this planning process, the Tribes are seeking input from tribal members and the local community through the 2014 Community Survey.

Tribal members, non-member residents of the Reservation and employees of the Tribes and the BIA Agency are eligible to complete the survey. All respondents must be at least 18 years of age.

The survey responses will be tallied and analyzed by the Tribes’ consultant, The Center for Applied Research. All responses will be kept confidential. The Center will prepare a report on the combined responses and comments and will provide an analysis of the results. The report will be made available to the community. 

Completed surveys with signatures and contact information will be eligible for the survey raffle for multiple prizes including a generator, kayak and snow blower among others!

The survey is available as a printable version (PDF format) that you can print on your computer printer. After you print the form, fill out the survey and mail it to the Center for Applied Research.
