Whitehorse city council is moving forward with its development plans for Whistle Bend.

City council has approved the final lots in the first two phases of the development.

Final approval was granted for three multiple family lots, three public utility lots, a commercial lot, a site for future planning and a public service lot.

Additionally, road rights were approved for Casca Boulevard, Keno Way, Olive May Way and Tarahne Way, and a number of greenbelt lots, as shown on the approved Whistle Bend Subdivision sketches.

The new subdivision plan encompasses the remaining unsurveyed areas and two new utility lots not previously approved.

Amendments to the plans also included “some fine-tuning and minor corrections to boundaries.”

Subdivision approvals for subsequent phases of Whistle Bend will be brought forward for council approval at a later date.
