            Residents in the Kodiak Island Borough will be seeing some changes to zoning laws in the near future, as the borough continues its long, hard look at the code.

            Borough associate planner Duane Dvorak and private consultant Val Lazdins of L-S-L Planning in Grand Rapids, Michigan, were on KMXT's Talk of the Rock last week with Maggie Wall. Dvorak says Titles 16, 17 and 18 of the borough code, dealing with subdivisions, zoning and land management, respectively, are under scrutiny for a good reason: many of them date to the 1960s and 70s.

            The first zoning workship is tonight (Thursday) at 6 p.m. at Kodiak High School, with the second Friday at 6:30 at the Chiniak School.

            Workforce housing continues to be a concern in the Kodiak community and the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce may form a committee to look for solutions. At a Monday chamber-hosted forum, real estate broker Bob Brodie said the housing crunch isn't expected to improve any time soon.

             There's a perception that seafood processors lure workers to Kodiak but don't provide housing. But John Whiddon, general manager of the Pacific Seafoods plant in Kodiak, insisted that's not the case. He says many seasonal workers arrive in Kodiak on their own when their jobs in other fisheries wind down.

              Others he said are lured to Kodiak by agencies that manufacture fake papers with bogus job offers.

              Kodiak Island Borough Community Development Director Bud Cassidy said residents can legally rent our spare rooms. And while there may be some government initiatives to spur development, he argued investment would largely have to borne by private developers.

             Chamber Executive Director Trevor Brown said he'd bring a proposal to his board to form a workforce housing committee to continue to explore the issue.
