Kenai City Council Debates Comp Plan Amendments for Hours Wednesday Night
The Kenai City Council held a public work session on the “Image Kenai 2030″ Comprehensive Plan during last night’s regular council meeting.
Mayor Porter: “Oh, we got an awful lot accomplished with the comprehensive plan, we only have a few more amendments that I think we’ll be looking at during the next meeting, but for the majority of them they were all done. And I think that we have a council at agrees on things and don’t agree on things, and that’s very healthy, I think, for our community. So that’s what was done.”
Kenai Mayor Pat Porter also commented on a number of amendments to the planning document made by council last night
Mayor Porter: “The multi-use particularly around the highway corridor, and also changing some on Walker lane. Changing Angler Drive from multi-use back to Rural Residential 1, that’s something the residents wanted down there and so the council did that. The residents wanted the classification changed from the usage proposed back to being a park kind of an atmosphere, that’s a buffer zone they have between Walker lane and say the Aspen Hotel, and so we accommodated that for them as well. So I think, all in all, we’re listening to the public, we’re making some changes and some changes didn’t get made, but that’s typical of the process.”
The council will continue with amendments on the comp plan during their April 17th meeting.
