The CTUIR Tribal Planning Office received permit applications for review to start construction on the infrastructure for the Nixyáawii Neighborhood, including utility lines, roads, and sidewalks. Initial construction was delayed due to contractor shortages and high material costs during the 2021 construction season. Construction for the infrastructure is scheduled to start in early Spring 2022.
