Planning Commission meets March 26. Here’s how to weigh in.
The City and Borough of Juneau Planning Commission meets on March 26, 7 p.m. in City Hall Assembly Chambers to review proposals for an assisted living facility and reconstruction of a terminal at the airport. They will also decide whether or not to make a recommendation to the CBJ Assembly regarding a proposal to rezone several properties on Thunder Mountain Road. All of these items are up for public hearing.
Legacy Senior Living: A new 30-bed assisted living facility (USE2019 0005)
In 2017, Juneau Youth Services vacated the property at 9290 Hurlock Avenue, and the CBJ Assembly sold the property to Alaska Legacy Partners, for the development of this assisted living facility. The applicant indicates that this project will remodel and renovate the existing building in order to provide for 15 rooms, with occupancy of up to 30 residents.
Phase 2 of the Juneau International Airport reconstruction project (USE2019 0003 & CSP2018 0015)
The Airport requests review and a permit for the redevelopment of the north wing terminal building which will result in a net reduction of 11,000 square feet. Following reconstruction, only passenger services and airport operations will be hosted in the building with carriers required to provide their own freight buildings and facilities on airport land that will be available as lease lots.
Rezoning 3 properties on Thunder Mountain Road (AME2019 0002)
The applicant requests a rezone of three lots located at 8476, 8476, and 8479 Thunder Road from D5 to D18 zoning. These lots are adjacent to the Thunder Mountain Mobile Park, which is zoned D18. The rezone is being pursued in order to address existing nonconforming uses and/or to introduce higher density development.
