Public comment wanted on proposed Vision and Guiding Principles for Kusawa Park

May 21, 2009

Whitehorse – The Kusawa Park Steering Committee invites Yukoners to help them move forward on a comprehensive and cooperative management plan for one of the Yukon’s favourite and most accessible wilderness recreation areas.

Public consultation begins today on the Vision and Guiding Principles that form the basis for developing the Kusawa Park management plan, which in turn will guide development and operation of the park. Do the Vision and Guiding Principles reflect what you want to see as the future of Kusawa Park? What would you change? Why?

The proposed vision sees Kusawa Park as a place of many hearts and hands working together to tend a special place where all are welcomed. The six proposed Guiding Principles include respect for the ecological integrity of the area as well as acknowledging the economic benefits and opportunities that may come.

This is the second opportunity for public input in what is expected to be a two-year-long planning process. The deadline for comments on the Vision and/or the Guiding Principles is June 30, 2009. Comments should be sent to the Steering Committee Secretariat.

The rest of the press release, as well as the Vision and Guiding Principles, are available for download in this PDF: May 2009 Press Release.
