Assembly Lands Committee to Meet Regarding Hurlock Avenue Property

February 5, 2018 – News

The Assembly Lands Committee will meet on Monday, February 12, 2018 at noon to discuss the future of the Cornerstone facility at 9290 Hurlock Avenue. The city’s Lands and Resources Division is hoping to sell or lease the property, at or below fair market value, to an organization that can repurpose the facility and use it to help the community.

“This special meeting will give applicants proposing new uses for the Cornerstone facility an opportunity to make presentations, and give Lands Committee members a chance to ask questions to clarify proposals,” said Lands and Resources Manager Greg Chaney.

The city has received six proposals for the property: Alaska Legacy Partners, an assisted living facility for seniors; Aunt Margaret’s House, a halfway house and seasonal housing facility; Gehring Nursery School, for preschool child care; Polaris House, a mental healthcare service; the Glory Hole homeless shelter; and Prama Home, Inc., which would combine preschool education, senior care, and services for homeless youth. (Feb. 7 update: The Glory Hole has withdrawn its application.)

Monday’s meeting will take place in City Hall’s Assembly Chambers. No public testimony will be taken at this meeting.  The committee will take up the issue again at its February 26, 2018, meeting, at which time it is anticipated that the committee will forward a recommendation to the Assembly for further consideration.
