What We Heard
Thanks to everyone who was able to attend events and provide as part of the engagement for the Whistle Bend future planning areas and town square. Our intention was to understand the 'Town Square experience' residents were seeking and gain feedback on concept plans. Events included:
- July 19th and 25th pop-up events at the pond in Whistle Bend
- May 16th 'TED-ish' talk @ Baked
- May 17th government partner workshop @ Public Safety Building
- May 17th community World Cafe @ Mountainview Golf Course
- June 17th Ta'an Kwäch'än Council citizen workshop @ Kwanlin Dun Culture Centre
Why Engagement Matters
It is important to the City that the planning work for the future areas as well as the planning and design of the town square plan considers their aspirations, needs, and expectations because we know citizens have a strong connection to their community.
The planning process will ensure TKC’s hopes and aspirations for their lands are considered in the overall planning vision. The planning process will also provide opportunities for both Whistle Bend residents and Whitehorse citizens to ensure their hopes and aspirations are considered in the overall planning vision.
