The South Tongass Service Area Board of Directors has taken the approved land initiative to the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Planning and Zoning Department for a request of rezone from Low-Density Residential (RL) to Public Lands and Institutions (PLI). The Ketchikan Gateway Borough Planning Commission/Platting Board will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, July 10th, 2007, at 6 pm in the City of Ketchikan Council Chambers.
Residents of Jurgen Drive, Teddy Lane and Seawatch voiced concerns over a lack of communication with those directly affected by the new location and increased noise close to their property. The South Tongass Volunteer Fire Department has sent out numerous flyers to Seawatch residents and will increase efforts to communicate with residents of Teddy Lane and Jurgen Drive. The Department will also discuss options to decrease noise concerns, such as creating a buffer zone between the adjacent properties.
According to a news release, the South Tongass Volunteer Fire Department is eager to work with the community on this project to ensure that the Community Fire Station adequately serves the needs of public safety and community members. Planning committee participation is open to the public.
