Notice of Assembly Consideration of Potential Annexation

January 12, 2018 – News, Notices for Public Comment

On Monday, January 22, 2018, at its regular meeting beginning at 7 pm in the City Hall Assembly Chambers, 155 S. Seward Street, Juneau, the Assembly of the City and Borough of Juneau will consider Resolution 2817 – A Resolution Authorizing the Filing of an Annexation Petition with the Local Boundary Commission.

This resolution would authorize the Manager to amend (or refile, as directed by the state) the CBJ’s pending annexation petition before the Local Boundary Commission to narrow the current petition to unincorporated property between the CBJ’s southern boundary and Petersburg’s northern boundary, and to expand the petition by drawing boundary lines to follow the natural geography of Admiralty Island to include the following areas:

  • Lands abutting and in Seymour Canal beginning with the Pack Creek watershed and including all lands to the north that drain into Seymour Canal.
  • The Glass Peninsula
  • All of the lands on Admiralty Island to the north of Hawk Inlet, including Horse and Colt Islands;
  • An area south of the Greens Creek Mine and the existing Borough boundary that encompasses all lands that drain into Wheeler Creek and lands to the west of the Wheeler Creek basin that drain directly into Chatham Strait.

This resolution directs that the petition be filed under the legislative review process.

Additional information will be available in the agenda packet no later than Friday, January 19, 2018 at the following website address: https://juneau.org/assembly/assembly-minutes-and-agendas
