For almost 3 years, the Dawson Regional Land Use Planning process has been suspended. In late 2014, the Government of Yukon, Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and Vuntut Gwitchin Government (the "Parties") mutually agreed to suspend the process until the Peel Watershed court case reaches final resolution at the Supreme Court of Canada. Now that a decision has been reached, the Parties are discussing a restart. Among the many things being addressed are:
- Terms of Reference for the Commission
- Roles and responsibilities
- Operational details
- How the new Terms of Reference will include new planning concepts suggested in recent years
- Status of Dawson planning progress and products
- Necessary updates to the Commission's knowledge base: what has changed in 3 years?
The Council and staff support these discussions with advice and meeting space. We look forward actively participating in a new planning process!
