Comprehensive Land Use Plan

Comprehensive Land Use Plan

Project Overview

Creating a comprehensive plan for Coquille Indian Tribe properties has been identified as a priority by the Coquille Tribal Council.  The comprehensive plan will focus on transportation, planning and redevelopment opportunities for Tribal properties that are held in federal trust or in fee ownership. The plan will guide and inform transportation infrastructure development and land use designations.

The Tribe’s Vision

“We are a proud, powerful and resilient people, a sovereign nation, whose binding thread is our Coquille identity. In the footsteps of our ancestors we celebrate.”

With this as its vision, the Tribe guarantees to its membership and the community that comprehensive planning will include sustainable land use. The Tribe desires to offer Tribal members, staff and the visiting public the opportunity to walk and bike where they need or want to go on Tribal lands.

First Phase: Empire Properties

In July 2018, the Tribal Council adopted a comprehensive plan for the Coquille Tribe’s properties in the Empire area, southwest of the city of Coos Bay.  The plan’s primary focus is on properties located near Cape Arago Highway, including the Kilkich Reservation.
