Marsh Lake local area planning

The governments of Yukon, Kwanlin Dün First Nation and Carcross/Tagish First Nation are developing a local area plan for Marsh Lake.



What is local area planning?

Local area plans guide the development and use of land in unincorporated Yukon communities. The plans designate areas for specific land uses. Learn more about local area planning.



The planning area

The Marsh Lake plan area is approximately 376 square kilometres. The area extends from the north shoreline of Marsh Lake, east to Judas Creek, north to Michie Creek and west to the northern tip of the Lewes Marsh Habitat Protection Area.
