YAA Land Lease

On August 1 2012 the Yukon Agricultural Association signed a 30-year lease agreement with the Government of Yukon for a 65 hectare parcel of land on the Mayo Road (about 25 km north of Whitehorse). The photo sketch below shows the site. For background material and history, download your copy of Klassen Natural Resources Consulting's 2013 report: "Planning for the Development of the Yukon Agriculture Association Agriculture Lease" hereSince obtaining the lease, the YAA has cleared the fencelines in preparation for new fencing and installed two shipping containers to serve as a storage facility.

On September 10, 2014, URBAN Systems presented conceptual plans for consideration at a workshop held at the Hootalinqua Firehall. The site plan determines the type, location, and extent of infrastructure development that will meet the present and anticipated needs of the Association over the next 20 years. The study was comprised of three major components: firstly, a documentation of exisiting conditions on the propoerty including geotechnical issues; secondly a summary of issues identified through consultation with YAA members and other stakeholders including the Yukon Horse and Rider Association, and thirdly, the development of the conceptual site plan design. The Yukon Agricultural Association Conceptual Site Plan final report was released October 8, 2014.

Throughout 2016 YAA engaged in business planning activities for the development of the leased land. The YAA's 2017-2021 Strategic Plan recommends specific improvements to the leased land and a phased approach to land utilization. Initial developments include the clearing of land and the construction of a camp kitchen for community use, to support agricultural activities.
