Kenai Residents Weigh in on Draft Comp Plan

As we reported, the Kenai City Council held their first public hearing of the draft comprehensive plan Wednesday night.

The issue of millennium square was brought up by Dr. Peter Hanson…


Dr. Hanson: “I would hope that you would see the merit of including the conceptual drawing of  millennium square, as outlined in the KEDs report with this comprehensive plan. I think this is very important to the future of our city, and seeing our town grow, and developing with a city center.”


Kenai resident Kelly Kelso commented on the issue of development along the Kenai Spur Highway


Kelso: “I know, that there have been many who have testified against this huge change to the land use map. I understand that this is always dismissed  I understand that this is not a change in zoning. But it is a vision for the future of Kenai, and I’m just wondering where did this extreme vision come from? This vision for limited commercial along the main corridors, certainly, I ‘ave heard no citizens that they envision this at any of the meetings, and I mean, I’ve attended a lot of meetings, more than I can count.” 


The council will hold an additional public work session on the plan next Friday, March 29th at 6:00pm
