Resolution No. 2016-006 - Passed by Consensus

Settlement Land Set Aside on East End Airstrip

Whereas;  The land set a side was given to the Vuntut Gwitchin Government in 1956. Later the
		 Yukon Government and Canada built part of the airstrip on the land set aside, taking away 
		 land from the Vuntut Gwitchin citizens.       

Whereas;  Land set aside for the development of building housing on lots have been slowly depleting 
		 in recent years, resulting in limited space for future development.

Whereas;  There is a concern in the community regarding the dangers of having the airstrip run thorugh 
		 the middle of the community, leaving the community vulnerable to the possibility of a diaster 
		 related to aircraft 
		 crashes or explosions.

Therefore Be It Resolved;	

The Vuntut Gwitchin Government Chief and Council meet with the Yukon Government and 
Federal Government to discuss and negotiate the land set aside on the airstrip to be reclaimed
and compensated for the usage by Yukon Government over the years.
