Message from the Chair

"Land Use Planning will benefit all Yukoners by providing a shared vision of the future. The diverse and intimate knowledge Yukoners have of the land and resources is arguably our most precious asset. As information is gathered to prepare regional land use plans, Council wants to ensure new and existing information is broadly accessible. I invite you to explore our site, and discover your Yukon."
