Community Sustainability Study

The purpose of the Community Sustainability Study initiative is to evaluate the feasible options for adjacent communities to share public services and/or infrastructure in order to better support community sustainability.

Preliminary analysis has been conducted among the following community “clusters”:

  • Toksook Bay, Tununak, and Nightmute
  • Emmonak, Alakanuk, Nunum Iqua

In 2016 and 2017, a support team including WHPacific and the Cold Climate Housing Research Center developed the final Phase I Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Community Sustainability Model (2mb pdf) and the Phase II Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Community Sustainability Model for the Lower Yukon (3mb pdf). These documents can also be downloaded from the Resource Library page.
