YESAB decision document for North 60 Petro Cardlock

Yukon Government has altered the recommendation of YESAB to upgrade the intersection(s) at Hillcrest and the Alaska Highway within three years as part of the North 60 Petro project. It has been changed to allow for upgrading at some point in the future, with no timeline or commitment attached, substantially weakening the recommendation of YESAB.

The HCA has received several complaints from residents about dog walkers who are not cleaning up after their pets.

Be a thoughtful neighbour and pick up after your dog. There are free poop bags available at the Elijah Smith trail and the entrance to the park.

Response from City of Whitehorse RE: YESAB application at #3 Roundel

The HCA contacted the City of Whitehorse to find out how they might address the question of traffic management for the proposed cardlock refueling station at #3 Roundel in Hillcrest.

Since YG will not permit access to the lot from the highway, it will be a municipal issue.

We received this response from the Mayor’s office.

HCA makes a submission to YESAB regarding proposed cardlock at #3 Roundel

The Hillcrest Community Association received a lot of important feedback from our community members about the proposal from North 60 Petro Ltd to develop a cardlock re-fueling station at the intersection of Roundel and the Alaska Highway.

The association took the time to coordinate that feedback into a formal submission under the Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Boards review process.

The submission can be read here, and the deadline for submissions was extended to May 10th, 2018. Visit their website for more information.
