Draft Plan Survey is now LIVE

Draft Plan Summary and Highlights

In an effort to make the Draft Plan for the Dawson Region more accessible we have produced 3 versions of the Draft Plan. The Highlights version is an 8 page high level overview of some of the elements of the Draft Plan. The Draft Plan Summary (26 pages) goes into a bit more detail about the principles and recommendations in the plan.


We want to hear from you! Workshops on Aug 4 & 5 in Dawson and online

Draft Plan CoverOn August 4th and 5th the Commission and staff will be hosting the first of many workshops on the Draft Plan.  The workshops will be held in Dawson at the Front Street Artist's Market and online (click here for a Link to the Online workshop)

We will be providing an overview of the draft plan and having conversations about three elements of the plan that the Commission is specifically seeking input on at this time.

Draft Plan Launch!

Draft Plan CoverOn June 15th, 2021, the Dawson Regional Planning Commission released a Draft Land Use Plan for the Dawson region.

 “The Dawson Regional Planning Commission is very pleased to share with the public this Draft Plan, which is the result of the collaboration of many people and our planning partners over the past two years,” said Commission Chair Debbie Nagano. This Draft Plan reflects our vision and planning philosophy, ‘On the Land We Walk Together’/ ‘Nän käk ndä tr'ädäl’.”

The Draft Plan and a Draft Plan Summary are available for viewing on this website at dawson.planyukon.ca. A backgrounder is also available there.

More information and details about the public engagement process are available on the Engage Dawson website at engagedawson.planyukon.ca.
