The Government of Yukon and City of Dawson have hired Stantec Consulting to complete a Master Plan for the Dome Road Subdivision. The purpose of the study is to provide a detailed plan for subdivision and development of four sites along Dome Road. As directed by Council, the Dome Road Subdivision is envisioned as a serviced residential development, which will provide a range of housing types for our community, and build on past work such as the Slinky Mine Visioning Charette which took place in December 2019. A background document outlining previous information is available to read here.
To share information gathered to date, and review the opportunities and constraints for each site, we hosted community engagement in February 2021. The What We Heard Report summarizes this engagement. The feedback gathered during that process has been used in the creation of concept plans for each of the development areas.
At this time, we would like to share the draft concept plans with the community and discuss how each concept achieves the previously-identified design criteria: overall project vision, objectives, and community preferences. Please follow the links to find the presentation and presentation boards that will be used in the survey and engagement opportunities.
An online survey was used to share the draft concept plans and gather feedback.
Four in-person public information sessions took place over recent months to provide a brief concept overview presentation, followed by an informal discussion where attendees could view display boards and ask questions to the development team.
To accommodate distanced engagement, one online information session took place to provide a brief overview of each draft concept plan, followed by a question-and-answer period.
A public information session held on Tuesday February 23rd was recorded and is available to view below.
Following this engagement process, staff has been refining the draft concept plans for each development area and completing the Master Plan, which will ultimately be reviewed and adopted by Council.
Currently staff is in the process of compiling a 'What we Heard' document and is refining the concept plans, informed by public feedback that has been provided.
As noted above, Stantec Consulting Ltd. has been hired to complete this Master Plan and lead the engagement activities. Please contact Zoë Morrison at firstname.lastname@example.org (867) 332-3286, if you have any questions about the project or the engagement opportunities available to you.
