The City of Whitehorse Official Community Plan (OCP) is a land use document that is periodically reviewed and provides a vision for the physical layout of Whitehorse. The OCP is developed in consultation with residents to help ensure that Whitehorse grows in a responsible and sustainable manner.
The City of Whitehorse has formally adopted Whitehorse 2040 as the City’s new Official Community Plan.
The adoption follows the document’s mandatory ministerial review and approval by the Yukon’s Minister of Community Services Richard Mostyn and is the result of months of engagement with the community.
This OCP will guide the City’s growth well into the future and includes a number of changes to meet the changing needs of the community.
Within the next two years, the City will also complete a Zoning Bylaw Review which will support the intent of the new OCP.
This work would not have been possible without the important feedback from residents, businesses, stakeholders, and partners. Thank you to everyone who participated and shared their feedback throughout the development process.
