How do I formally express my support, concerns, or objections to a reconstruction project under the new Local Improvement Policy?
Infrastructure Reconstruction projects will have public consultation and input from property owners taken into consideration during the design process. However, because property owners are not sharing the cost of reconstruction of the roadway and other public property, there will not be the objection process to determine whether the project proceeds or not. That would be decided through the City’s capital budget process, and property owners will be able to Opt-In or Opt-Out for the replacement of private services to the property. In the case of Discretionary Local Improvements that are property owner-initiated, there would be a formal process in accordance with the Yukon’s Municipal Act with not more than 50% objection by benefitting property owners.
