A Dat-naa-svt Master Plan was created by group planning process with tribal members in 2016 to develop a new community that embodies the culture and values of the tribe, and seeks to become a model of sustainability, culture, and healthy living. The intent is to create a modern village that responds to the culture and traditions of the Dee-ni’, the needs of Tolowa tribal members in a design that reflects the evolving broader vision and culture for present and future generations. 20 of the planned 21 homes will be built and occupied by low-income families, 60% of median income or less. There is an urgent need for affordable housing locally, and this development will provide that affordable housing for some of the area’s lowest income families.
