Tioweró:ton Land Use Survey results released

05/04/2017

The Lands Unit of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawą:ke is pleased to release the results of a Land Use Survey for Tioweró:ton that was carried out in October 2016.

There were 136 surveys completed, of which over 50% of participants were cabin owners and over 15% more plan to build one. Survey participants were from Kahnawą:ke and Kanehsatį:ke. Some of the survey results were:

  • When asked what they would change about Tioweró:ton, more than 1/3 of survey participants mentioned a desire to see restrictions placed on All Terrain Vehicle use.
  • When asked which animals they see less of, Moose & Trout were the most common answers.
  • There was plenty of support shown to have Medicine Picking areas and Hunting & Fishing areas (including wetlands & creeks) protected

"The data collected from this survey is invaluable to the land use planning project," said Land Use Planning Coordinator Cole McComber. "Community feedback is the foundation a Tioweró:ton land use plan framework needs to be built on."

Supplemental information on other Land Use planning materials can be found on www.kahnawake.com/lands . For more information on these results, please contact the Land Use Planning Coordinator at (450) 638-8244.

Land Use Planning will be on the agenda at the May 13th Tioweró:ton Community Meeting.
