Recommended Plan More Accessible

Information that pops up when an LMU is clicked.

Since our Recommended Plan went public, we recognized that it is a large document and wanted to make parts of the plan more accessible and easy to find. We are trying to do this by creating a series of new web-pages that try to better explain some core concepts. All the information on these pages were taken from the documents we posted here, though in some cases text was rewritten for clarity or information was analyzed to better show patterns and relationships.

This work may set the stage for a separate, user-friendly version of the plan. It also demonstrates some ideas for a future website that helps assessors and project proponents use the plan. Proponents could use guidance on that website to refine their proposals before submitting them to YESAB.

Recommended Plan Released

Our Recommended Plan is now public! You can find the Recommended Plan, the Recommended Plan Summary and the Recommended Plan Summary here.

The Plan Parties (Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in and Yukon Governments) will consult on the Recommended Plan before either approving it or recommending a final round of changes back to us. More information on their consultation process can be found on their site Though we will not be leading the consultation, we will attend many of the consultation events. We look forward to seeing you there!

In Your Words Report: A summary of feedback on DRPC Draft Plan engagement

The Dawson Planning Commission is excited to announce the public release of the In Your Words Report: A Summary of Draft Regional Plan Engagement and Feedback

The report is a summary of what the Commission heard from the Parties, public, and Plan Partners during their engagement campaign on the Draft Regional Plan that occurred between June 15 2021 and November 2021.  The Commission received an incredible amount of feedback during engagement which they used to inform the creation of the Recommended Plan, which was submitted to the Parties in June 2022.

Recommended Plan Handover June 10 2022

On June 10 2022 the Commission completed a major milestone in the Dawson Regional planning process. At the top of the Midnight Dome in Dawson City they officially handed over the Recommended Plan for the Dawson Region to the Parties and Affected First Nations. The Commission was honored to hand the Recommended Plan to Premier Sandy Silver, Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in Chief Roberta Joseph, and Na-cho Nyäk Dun Deputy Chief Roberta Hager. Now that the Recommended Plan is officially in the hands of the Parties the next phase of the process is for the Parties to conduct their consultation with stakeholders and the public on the Recommended Plan.  The Plan will be released publicly for consultation by the Parties in Fall 2022.

In the meantime, the Commission and staff are working hard to finalize the In Your Words Report: A summary of engagement on the Draft Plan, the Plan Highlights document, and a summary version of the Plan. 

The Commission would like to express their gratitude to all of the members of public, citizens, stakeholders, and the Parties for the incredible amount of work that they contributed to the development of the Recommended Plan. The Dawson Region is an incredibly special place for all of us, and this would not have been possible without the passion and respect that everyone has shown this past year. 

We are looking forward to the public release of the Recommended Plan and the consultation period this fall. 

Have a wonderful summer!
