The Dawson Regional Planning Commission has just wrapped up the public consultation on their Plan Alternatives. After several months of working with the Yukon,Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in and Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation Governments and stakeholders, the Commission produced five plan alternatives that sketch out different possible directions the Draft Plan may take. After the review period ended on March 2, 2014, the Commission will now consider all the feedback and start to develop a Draft Plan that will likely be based on one or more alternatives. The staff of the Yukon Land Use Planning Council contributed analytical and administrative support to this project.
The Commission held public meetings in Whitehorse on February 7, and in Dawson on February 12, 2014. These events were a combination of open-house and presentations with an opportunity for public questions and comments. Over 30 people attended each event!
