A property acquisition and disposal review of land by the City & Borough of Juneau (PAD2022 0002)

The application is seeking to sell 105,347 square feet of land to the CBJ and purchase 140,394 square feet of land from the CBJ. This land swap is being proposed as a means of creating additional buildable lots within the CBJ, in conformity with the 2013 CBJ Comprehensive Plan. In addition, the land being conveyed to CBJ would be included in the existing designated stream buffer to extend protection of Grant Creek, an anadromous water body. This effort is also in conformity with the 2013 Comprehensive Plan.

A Conditional Use Permit modification for Juneau Youth Services (USE2022 0010)

Juneau Youth Services (JYS) is proposing to convert seven dorm rooms in the currently vacant Montana Creek House into office spaces for JYS staff. This will allow JYS to move staff and programs from their secondary location on Jordan Avenue to the JYS residential treatment campus. This consolidation will allow JYS to provide on-site support services directly related to the existing residential treatment uses, as well as complementary programs run by JYS.
