After getting feedback from various groups, the Yukon government is extending the deadline for applications to the Land Use Planning Commission by two weeks.
The Yukon government is extending the deadline for applications to the Dawson Regional Land Use Planning Commission to August 3rd.
The original deadline for applications was this past Friday, however, several groups, most notably the Klondike Placer Miners Association, warned there wasn't enough time for those interested to get their application in after the initial call.
The KPMA argued everyone in Dawson is busy with the mining and tourist seasons.
The Yukon Chamber of Commerce was also one of the groups seeking an extension, and says it's pleased with the move, as it better ensures participation from critical stakeholders in the process.
The commission is restarting, after being halting during the years-long Peel Watershed Land Use Planning court battle.
