City & State Project Review

Projects which are managed by the City and Borough of Juneau or the State of Alaska are subject to our City State Project Review Process (CSP). Through this, we ensure that all government projects conform to the Comprehensive Plan and other adopted plans, in order to protect and enhance the livability of Juneau for current and future generations.

City Projects

The Planning Commission reviews all proposed City and Borough Capital Improvement Projects estimated at $500,000 or more, for consistency with the Land Use Code and adopted plans, pursuant to CBJ 49.15.580.

State Projects

The Planning Commission reviews all proposed Alaska State Improvement Projects, for consistency with the Land Use Code and adopted plans, pursuant to AS 35.30.

Public Noticing

Projects under CSP review review the following types of noticing:

  • Notice of the application and the public hearing shall be mailed to property owners and all neighborhood associations listed with the municipal clerk in accordance with CBJ 11.35, located within 500 feet of the property subject to the city or state project.
  • A large public notice sign shall be posted at the site or other location approved by the director at least 14 days prior to the Public Hearing. The sign shall be visible from a public right-of-way, and contain a project description, the date of the public hearing, and contact information.
  • Notice of the public hearing and project shall be published in the newspaper a minimum of 10 days prior to the public hearing.
  • The proposed project will be posted as an agenda item on the Planning Commission website.
