3P (Project Proposal process)

Lets go

In Keeping with the Record of Decision (CCT 2001) signed by the Chair of the Colville Business Council (Resolution 2001-248) and the BIA Colville Agency Superintendent, this process is meant to ensure proposed actions are in line with the Colville Tribes of the Colville Reservation (CTCR) Integrated Resource Management Plan (IRMP).

Because the majority of activities on Indian trust lands include Federal funding or approval through the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), many proposed projects must comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The NEPA process is intended to facilitate public participation and disclosure in the federal planning process, and also help officials “make decisions that are based on the understanding of environmental consequences, and take actions that protect, restore, and enhance the environment” (40 CFR 1500.1(c)). The NEPA process analyzes and discloses the significant impacts a proposed action may have on the quality of the human environment.
