Planning & Infrastructure

 The Planning & Infrastructure Department is very similar to what other communities might refer to as their Public Works Department.  The responsibility to the organization is to manage the community infrastructure of Sagamok Anishnawbek.  We oversee the planning and maintenance of the existing and future infrastructure. 


The services we deliver are safe and reliable road systems, fresh, clean, treated water to homes, and safe and accessible public buildings.


Our main offices are located within the Administration Building located at 4007 Espaniel Road.
