To the editor:
There will be a hearing in the Kodiak Island Borough at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17, in the Borough Assembly Chambers to vote on the disposal of Tract A-1, Block 4, Kadiak Alaska Subdivision, 1st addition. The intent of the request is to make the parcel available for residential development.
The tract is across Rezanof from the Woody Way Housing. I have done a little research and feel that this parcel is one of two in the area that the borough owns. The other is the ball park across from the KANA building. (The trees have been cleared from approximately three-quarters of that parcel for the ball field.)
In most communities the planners set aside parcels of natural habitat for future generations. I would hope to convince the current assembly members to consider this for our community.
Call me if you would like to know more, 928-970-2299. You may want to call in your opinion during the hearing, 907-486-3231, or attend the meeting,
