The tribes dedicated the site of a new housing program maintenance building on March 17. The building is the first phase of the $3.5 million construction project that will ultimately include 30 new homes, 20 in Chiloquin and 10 more in Sprague and Beatty, said Roy LaFromboise, director of the tribal housing program. Since restoration, the tribes have been working towards the goal of self-sufficiency, said Klamath Tribes Chairman Allen Foreman, during a dedication and groundbreaking ceremony. This project represents one small step towards that goal, Foreman said. Projects such as this not only help the tribes but help improve the community as well.
