To The People
To the People of Warm Springs,
We, in the past two weeks or so,
have dealt with many items that
may change the future appearance
of Warm Springs as well as provide
a more secure future for our member
ship. Earlier this month, we reviewed
a proposed preliminary plan pre
sented by the BIA Roads Department
that will provide a new approach to
Highway 26. The new access route
would come from the southside of

on Paiute Street, to the highway.
This proposal could involve a new
bridge and underpass for Shitike
Creek traffic. We have asked the
Roads department and tribal plan
ning to have public hearings for
Also proposed is a change in the
West Hills approach to Tenino
Road and perhaps a new west-side
entrance from Tenino Road to the
BIA programs officer Charles

budget cycle and the general process.
He also explained the adjustments
that are expected between this fiscal
year and 1988. He presented the
planning figures and we expect a
small increase in the overall BIA
budget. Jackson pointed out the
need for coordination between the
Warm Springs Agency and tribal
Ken Smith reported on the progress
he's made on the various projects

and federal legislation.
We authorized the tribal staff
