Kenai City Council to Hold First Comp Plan Public Hearing Tonight

The Kenai City Council will meet tonight, and the largest issue facing the council is the first scheduled public hearing on the new comprehensive plan for the city. We spoke to Kenai Mayor Pat Porter, who noted that these type of plans are living documents…

 

Mayor Porter: “If you would have looked, particularly  at our last plan that we had, you wouldn’t have seen any large box stores, meaning Home Depot and or Walmart type commercial act ivies in our communities. And so you have to be able to adjust your plan as you go along so that you can accommodate  how ever your community is changing. Because if you have a community that is healthy, it’s always going to be changing and may not go with how your plan was set. And you never want to say, ‘oh, we can’t do that because our plan doesn’t allow us’ because then you’re not a growing community.”

 

Tonight’s meeting of the council will begin at 7:00pm in the Kenai City Council Chambers
