Click this link to take a brief survey and help us plan the future of Coos Head.

    After being taken by the U.S. more than 140 years ago and developed into a military facility, Coos Head is once again under local CTCLUSI ownership and management. CTCLUSI has spent the past 10 years cleaning up this important cultural and historic site. The environmental cleanup is now complete, and we are preparing a Master Plan for Coos Head funded by a Transportation and Growth Management grant from the State of Oregon.

    Planning staff has directed the consulting team, led by Cogan Owens Greene, to consider both the Bal’diyaka Plan and the Integrated Resources Management Plan for Coos Head as a basis for the Coos Head Area Master Plan (CHAMP). Our early concepts show a tremendous opportunity for a cultural interpretive and retreat center at Coos Head that showcases CTCLUSI culture and traditions. Chief Warren Brainard says “We foresee an environmentally sensitive redevelopment of Coos Head as a benefit not only for Tribal members, but also for the greater Charleston and Coos Bay area economy”.

    Please participate in creating the Draft Master Plan for Coos Head! CTCLUSI held a public meeting on January 23 at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology (OIMB) Boathouse in Charleston. If you were unable to attend the public meeting, please visit the Planning Department’s website to review and comment on the draft opportunities and constraints memorandum. Information from our public meeting, including a slide show and a comment form, are available at For more information, please contact CTCLUSI Planning Director Jeff Stump at 541-888-1305 or Thank you in advance for helping plan this important asset for generations to come!
