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.

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.

Tank Farm Remediation Authorization Renewal

Tank Farm

The proponents of the Upper Tank Farm remediation project have asked Environment Yukon to renew their authorizations, which are set to expire on December 31, 2017.  Environment Yukon may renew the authorizations without a new assessment if they determine there has been no significant change to the original plan.

Environment Yukon has made a preliminary determination that the proposed activities have not significantly changed since the last assessment.  Before making its final determination, Environment Yukon is soliciting input and has contacted the HCA.

We have until November 24th to provide any comments on the question of whether there is a significant change to the original activities carried out.

Please share your views, concerns and opinions with us to the hillcrest.yt@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Relevant documents are found below:

Ministerial Authorization Amendment

YESAB Decision Document

Land Treatment Facility Permit

Air Emissions Permit
