A Text Amendment to adopt Juneau’s Historic and Cultural Preservation Plan as part of the CBJ Comprehensive Plan (AME2019 0012)

The 2013 Comprehensive Plan (Chapter 16) identifies the need to protect Juneau’s historic resources and one of the best ways to do that is by adopting and implementing a preservation plan. Staff recommends that the Planning Commission review and consider the draft Historic and Cultural Preservation Plan and recommend to the Assembly its adoption as an addendum to the Comprehensive Plan. This is based on the findings that the draft Historic and Cultural Preservation Plan complies with both the Comprehensive Plan and relevant adopted plans.
