Whitehorse Area

Local area planning occurs on a smaller scale for unincorporated areas of public and private land, and official community plans are creative for municipalities.

YCS engages at all levels of planning to contribute information, encourage public participation, call for transparency and monitor implementation. Some examples are below:

  • Regional Land Use Plan - Dawson Land Use Plan comments
  • Local Area Plan – Top of the World Timber Harvest Plan
  • Official Community Plan - City of Whitehorse Official Community Plan 


2016 Porter Creek/Range Point/Whistle Bend/Takhini Trail Planning Process - Feedback

Over the summer and fall of 2015 a trail survey was delivered by the Yukon Conservation Society (YCS) in partnership with the Friends of McIntyre Creek (FOMC) and the Porter Creek Community Association (PCCA) in order to learn more about the recreational use of McIntyre Creek Park and the region of land known as Middle McIntyre Creek between the Alaska Highway and Mountainview Drive. To help inform the City of Whitehorse Porter Creek/Whistle Bend/Takhini/Range Point trail planning process, YCS, FOMC and PCCA compiled the responses to the questions in the McIntyre Creek Trail Survey that are relevant to this trail planning process.
