What’s happening now?
The Government of Yukon and Ta’an Kwächän Council are collaborating to determine how to proceed with planning and zoning in the Shallow Bay area after the 2021 summer floods.
They have paused the zoning process until the Government of Yukon works towards completing detailed flood risk mapping for 14 communities, including Lake Laberge and Shallow Bay, by 2023.
The Shallow Bay Zoning Committee will conclude the What We Heard report. When the report is complete, we will share it with the community.
Zoning committee meeting held December 9, 2021
The zoning committee hosted a virtual meeting on December 9, 2021, to discuss the completion of the What We Heard report. The report is now being revised, and a final meeting will be held in early 2022.

Committee meeting notes
What are area development regulations?
Development area regulations divide a community into zones that permit different land uses. This is also called zoning.
Zoning is used to:
- provide for orderly development;
- separate areas of incompatible land use;
- ensure public safety; and
- promote the neighbourly use of private land.
