General Plan


City of Yellowknife General Plan By-law No. 4656 was adopted by City Council on March 12, 2012.

The preparation of the General Plan was based on the integrated 50-year growth and development framework set out in the Smart Growth Development Plan (SGDP).  The SGDP involved extensive public consultation with more than 2,000 residents including surveys, focus groups, MetroQuest, open houses, and a community design charrette.  

Building on the SGDP consultation results, the General Plan community consultation concentrated on growth targets and development strategies for the first 10-year planning horizon. A series of workshops, focus group sessions, open houses and community outreach events were hosted by the City.
