The Exchange: Planning Unalaska's Future
Wednesday, March 19 2014
Unalaskans know their community is on the verge of change. Increasing oil development in the Arctic could bring more industry to town. And that's something city planners want to be on top of far before it happens. They're preparing for a new comprehensive study this May on what residents want their city to look like -- what kinds of developments should be allowed, and where.
Along the way, the city is making smaller changes to its zoning code, also known as Title 8. There's a public hearing on some of changes -- including construction camps and housing developments -- this week.
Today on The Exchange, Unalaska Planning Director Erin Reinders joins us to talk about how her staff is working to envision Unalaska's future.
