Grand Ronde 2033 – Our Future

What the Grand Ronde Community looks like when we gather for the Tribe’s 50th Restoration in 2033, is a question that we want to explore with our tribal members. We’re embarking on a community development planning process to help guide decision-making and priority-setting for the Tribe. It builds on the progress the Tribe has made since Restoration and reflects a vision of your voices, your needs and your values.

Shawash-iliʔi 2033- nsayka kʰapa aɫqi (Grand Ronde 2033 – Our Future) is the community development plan and community planning process that is about where you, as Tribal members, want to see us go as a Tribe.  The plan will address key elements such as housing, education, services, stores, public safety, infrastructure, economic development, and jobs. The information will be used by Tribal Council and the Tribal government to guide decision-making and allocate resources.

To be successful, the planning process needs the participation, insights and ideas of Tribal Members, community members, employees, neighbors, and friends. Participants can engage through community meetings, listening sessions, work sessions, and online surveys that focus on specific topics.

Grand Ronde is (1) the seat of the Tribal government, (2) a great place to live, (3) a meaningful place to visit, and (4) the home of the area’s most important economic engine. To fulfill an integrated vision of the community, Shawash-iliʔi 2033 - nsayka kʰapa aɫqi (Grand Ronde 2033 – Our Future) must address each of these four aspects of our unique community.

The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde needs your voice.  Please email the project at GrandRonde2033@GrandRonde.org and let us know what topics you are interested in or how you want to participate.


This is a journey we will all take together, we value your voice, your thoughts, and your vision.

We appreciate your information and insight as we continue to work on developing a plan for the Grand Ronde community that reflects the vision and voices of the Tribe and Tribal membership.

The Four Communities: You don’t have to live in Grand Ronde to be a part of the Grand Ronde community. Grand Ronde is the seat of the Tribal government, a great place to live, a meaningful place to visit, and the home of the area’s most important economic engine. The Four Communities approach recognizes that to fulfill this integrated vision of the community, Shawash-iliʔi 2033- nsayka kʰapa aɫqi (Grand Ronde 2033 – Our Future) must address each of these unique visions of community. 

 


 

Summary of Past Plans: Our past informs our future. In 2018 the planning team looked at 11 Tribal plans spanning a 31 year period to identify lessons learned and recurring themes. This summary provides an overview of how the Tribe’s past planning efforts inform the Shawash-iliʔi 2033- nsayka kʰapa aɫqi (Grand Ronde 2033 – Our Future).

 


 

Community Maps: There are a number of ways we can look at “the community of Grand Ronde”. The Tribe’s GIS division has prepared a series of maps that provide insight into this community past and present.
