Dome Road Subdivision Master Planning

Introduction

The Government of Yukon and City of Dawson hired Stantec Consulting in the fall of 2021 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.

Engagement Activities

Feb 2021 Engagement 

Community engagement was conducted both in-person and online in February 2021 to share information gathered to date, review the opportunities and constraints for each site, and comment on the vision and goals. The What We Heard Report summarizes this engagement. The feedback gathered was then used in the development of the Planning Brief and draft concept plans for each of the development areas.

The purpose of the Planning Brief is to:

• provide a detailed review of the applicable City legislation and planning documents;

• evaluate past studies and visioning completed for the Dome Road subdivision;

• determine how work done to date will shape the future development;

• review each development area to understand the specific opportunities and constraints; and

• asses the development potential of each area

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. This session held on Tuesday February 23rd was recorded and is available to view below.


September 2021 Engagement

In September, community engagement was conducted both in-person and online to share the draft concept plans with the community and discuss how the concepts related to the previously-identified design criteria: overall project vision, objectives, and community preferences. This presentation provides an overview.

What's Happening Now?

Following the September engagement activities, Stantec produced the recommended concept plans . These concepts are currently being reviewed prior to development of the Master Plan.

Next steps

Next, Stantec will be developing the draft Dome Road Master Plan and Pre-Design Report, which will ultimately be reviewed and adopted by Council.
