Public Hearing on Subdivisions, Zoning and Land Use Resume Dec. 12 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 05 January 2015

    Next Monday, the Kodiak Island Borough Planning and Zoning Commission will continue its series of public hearings on the update to the borough code. It's a meeting KMXT will broadcast live, starting at 6:30 p.m.
    The special meeting will be to hear public comment on titles 16, 17 and 18 of the borough code. Title 16 contains the regulations for subdivisions; Title 17 are the zoning regulations and Title 18 are the borough lands regulations. There were three public hearings held in October, and borough Community Development Director Bob Pederson said the commission would like to hear more from the public.
    “They have been very well attended. Somewhere on the order of 30 to 40 people at a meeting – and I'm doing that from memory. We've received good public comments and quite a number of those have been incorporated into supplemental staff recommendations to the planning and zoning commission and the additional information that we've presented to P and Z.”
    Telling Alaskans – even those who chose to live in an organized borough – what they may or may not do with their land through zoning laws can be a hot-button issue:
    “And it often is, because it is establishing regulations for the use of land to have rules by districts that people can live by and make their investment-based decisions on. There's are always policy decisions where there can be good argument on both sides of a question, and ultimately, P and Z wades through those, filters those and makes a recommendation on to the assembly that then has the tough job of making the final decision on those issues.”
    The public can comment on any of the three portions of the code up for revision at next week's hearing. Some attracted more comments than others, and Pederson thinks the commission might be able to start moving one title further along the process and keep going on the rest as long as need be:
    “It's hoped that following the public comment on the 12th that we may be able to close the public hearings on Title 18 and move into the deliberations where P and Z looks at the language and makes any changes they deem appropriate and at the end of that process, when they've finished all their work, it will be forwarded  on to the assembly for final legislative action.”
    Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Alan Schmidt said that each change suggested by the public will be brought up before the commission and considered. Next Monday's meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. in the assembly chambers, and KMXT will broadcast it live.

    The Kodiak High School Bears girls teams were challenged by the Kenai Kardinals over the weekend, but swept the Central Peninsula team in Northern Lights Conference action. In two defensive struggles, Kodiak won 28-22 on Friday and then 33-28 on Saturday. The Bears are 2-0 in the NLC and 4-1 overall this season.
    The Kodiak boys finished up the ACS tournament in Anchorage dropping the fourth-place game to the Kotzebue Huskies 53-39 on Saturday. Jemuel Mangalus and Max Mutch with 10 apiece had more than half of the Bears' points. Host ACS won the tournament, defeating a tired Barrow, which had been on a week-long road trip, playing a game a day.

St. Nicholas Safe After USCG Help PDF Print E-mail

    The fishing vessel Saint Nicholas made it safely back into port Friday evening after it began taking on water about 60 miles southeast of Kodiak earlier in the day.
    On Friday morning the Coast Guard received a call from the Saint Nicholas' crew reporting that their pumps could not keep up with the flooding. A Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Kodiak responded and lowered a dewatering pump to the Saint Nicholas, which was able to control the flooding and proceed to port.

    Even though Kodiak, like much of Alaska, is going without an actual wintry winter this year, two actors, one local and one touring, are going to spend the next week taking audiences to the always icy, snowy and cold Queendom of Narnia. Mat Freeman and Stephanie Ann Foster of Cut Glass Theater talked about their upcoming performances this morning on KMXT news and even gave listeners and bit of a taste.

    Coming up this week, it looks like there'll be lower harvest limits for Prince William Sound black cod; we hear about cchanges coming up for the groundfish and halibut observer program, and everything that's old is new again – well, insofar as an ancient mollusk in the Arctic Ocean is concerned. All that and more, coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report.
    We had help this week from KCHU's Marcia Lynn in Valdez, KBBI's Shady Grove Oliver in Homer and APRN's Josh Edge in Anchorage, and we've had tons of help in 2014 from: Liz Ruskin, Dave Bendinger, Joe Viechnicki, Annie Ropeik, Rachel Waldholz, Monica Gokey, Tom Banse, Lauren Rosenthal, Ed Shoenfeld, John Sackton, Lori Townsend, Ben Matheson, Angela Denning, Margaret Friedenauer, Matt Miller, Daysha Eaton, Rich McClearn, Katarina Sostaric, Emily Schwing, Robert Woolsey, Greta Mart, Steve Heimel, Shaylon Cochran, Lisa Phu, Matthew Smith, Elizabeth Jenkins, Leila Kheiry, Megan Pedersen, Zacharia Hughes, Alexandra Gutierrez, Thea Card, Casey Kelly, Emily Foreman, Charles Enoch, Phillip Manning, and Quinton Chandler. 
    We also want to thank our underwriters, who make it possible to send you the Alaska Fisheries Report each week: Alaska Boats and Permits, Alaska Marine Safety Education Association, Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, Commercial Fishermen for Bristol Bay, Conoco Phillips and the Kodiak Area Native Association. 
    From KMXT in Kodiak the Alaska Fisheries Report wishes you a safe and happy new year.
