A Conditional Use Permit renewal for sand and gravel extraction, with blasting and rock crushing as accessory uses (SGE2022 0001)

The applicant requests a Conditional Use Permit renewal for sand and gravel extraction, with blasting and rock crushing as accessory uses at CBJ’s North Lemon Creek Material Source site. Proposed sand and gravel operations include excavation, blasting, rock-crushing, screening, and loading. Contractors typically perform mining activities utilizing a front-end loader or excavator to excavate bank material, then load material onto 10- or 20-yard trucks for transportation to project sites.

Two modifications of a Conditional Use Permit (USE2022 0005) for a cold weather emergency shelter at Resurrection Lutheran Church. (USEE2022 0014)

Modification #1: Newly proposed hours of 8:00 P.M. – 7:30 A.M. (current hours: 9:00 P.M. – 6:30 A.M.).

Modification #2: Newly proposed operation start date of October 15 (current start date is November 1).

The applicant is requesting modifications to the hours of operation and operation start date in order to address concerns raised at the April 26, 2022 Planning Commission meeting. The applicant is requesting the ability to open the cold weather emergency shelter one hour earlier, at 8:00 P.M., in case of low temperatures, and in order to discourage patrons from congregating outside of the church building and around the neighborhood prior to opening. The applicant feels that this change will be in the best interest of both their patrons and the neighborhood. The applicant is requesting the ability to open the cold weather emergency shelter two weeks earlier, on October 15 instead of November 1, in case of low temperatures for patrons. The earlier start date will also benefit patrons by coordinating with the closing of the CBJ operated Mill Campground, located on the Mount Roberts hillside near Franklin Dock and Taku Smokeries, which offers tent platforms and accompanying facilities free of charge to patrons.
