City launches new public engagement platform
Whitehorse – We’re excited to announce the launch of our new public engagement platform, Engage Whitehorse.
The City frequently seeks input from the public regarding priorities for policies, programs, projects, and initiatives. Through this easy-to-use platform, residents can share their ideas, provide feedback, and ask questions for many of the City’s projects during our trial of Engage Whitehorse, with more to come throughout the year.
Engaged residents help create strong neighbourhoods, and make our city more welcoming and inclusive. Visit engagewhitehorse.ca to view our current projects, and register today to join the discussion!
Capital and Operating Budgets
The City receives public feedback throughout the year regarding projects or improvements that City staff should consider for the budget. Through Engage Whitehorse, the City aims to ensure that all public feedback is acknowledged, considered, and incorporated into the budget, where possible.
This ongoing engagement is focused on soliciting specific project ideas or service suggestions for Council’s consideration and potential integration into the future capital or operating budgets.
McIntyre Drive Traffic Calming
The City is working together with the Kwanlin Dün First Nation to bring traffic calming improvements along McIntyre Drive. The purpose of this project is to reduce vehicular speeds, and improve safety and comfort for all road users.
This phase of engagement focuses on sharing information about the proposed improvements, and on learning about specific design issues and opportunities along the corridor.
