Tagish local area planning

The Government of Yukon and Carcross/Tagish First Nation are developing a local area plan for the community of Tagish. A steering committee of area residents is helping develop the plan.

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.
