Whitehorse Copper lots delayed

Construction setbacks have postponed the release of more than 100 country residential lots in Whitehorse by almost a year.

Construction setbacks have postponed the release of more than 100 country residential lots in Whitehorse by almost a year.

“They had some delays over a lot of little contributing factors,” said Yukon community services spokesperson Doug Caldwell.

“During the construction phase, they had some boulders in the way of the roadway and those had to be attended to so it took up more time.

“Just a lot of little things in construction that you don’t see at the beginning, but once you get into it they make themselves known.”

This week, the Yukon government asked Whitehorse council to approve a one-year extension for the subdivision.

If council grants the extension, subdivision approval will expire on August 8, 2007.

If it does not grant it, the subdivision cannot go ahead.

When finished, it would have 110 country residential lots, 25 service industrial lots, three parks, 14 walkways and 12 kilometres of new road.

Fifty-two of the country residential lots are slated to come available in June 2007.

The remaining 58, in phase two, are targeted to go on sale by October 2007.

Council will vote on the extension next week.

Currently there are no government-owned country residential lots available for sale in Whitehorse. (LC)
