Dome Road Subdivision Master Planning

Introduction

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.

Engagement Activities

Online Survey

An online survey will be used to share the draft concept plans and gather feedback. See here for a link to the survey to be posted between September 13 - September 30, 2021:

Paper copies will also be available at City Hall or can be printed out and submitted to City Hall.

In-Person Public Information Sessions

Wednesday September 15, 2021: 11am - 7:30pm (presentation at 12pm and 6pm)

  • Drop in whenever it's most convenient for you to do so! If you're able to, it's advised to come in at noon or 6pm to catch the presentation and then stick around for discussion and questions after.

Location: City office Council Chambers

Two public information sessions held on September 14/15, 2021 located in Council Chambers at the City office will begin with a brief concept overview presentation, followed by an informal discussion where attendees can view display boards and ask questions to the development team. The presentations will occur at the set times indicated above, but if you can't make the presentations times, drop ins are encouraged!

Maintaining physical distancing spacing for attendees is a priority in holding this event; as such, please sign up for attendance in advance. 

In accordance with territorial regulations and the Safe 6 Plus 1 recommendations:

  • Capacity at each public information session will be limited to ensure physical distancing can be accommodated 
  • All attendees will be asked to maintain 2m distancing from those outside their same social bubble
  • Wearing of masks is recommended

All sessions will require a specific room set-up based on the number of persons in attendance; as such, advanced registration is mandatory:

Please sign up for one of the sessions by visiting the Town office or contacting:

To accommodate distanced engagement, we will be hosting one online information session which will provide a brief overview of each draft concept plan, followed by a question-and-answer period. This event will be held on Thursday September 16, 2021 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

There were two public information sessions held on Tuesday February 23rd and if you were unable to attend these, one of the sessions was recorded and is available to view below.


Next steps

Following this engagement process, we will be refining the draft concept plans for each development area and completing the Master Plan, which will ultimately be reviewed and adopted by Council.
