Submit public comment on proposed waterfront change allowing new cruise ship dock
The City and Borough of Juneau is considering a change to the Long Range Waterfront Plan that would allow for the creation of a cruise ship dock facility at the Subport in Downtown Juneau. The amendment is the first of several permitting decisions the Juneau Assembly and Planning Commission must make regarding Norwegian Cruise Lines’ proposed development at the Subport. Read the amendment and supporting documents, and submit public comments by email through Monday, January 31, to CBJ Tourism Manager Alexandra Pierce at Alexandra.Pierce@juneau.org. More details can be found at juneau.org/tourism.
CBJ held a public meeting on the proposed amendment January 11. Staff made a presentation and answered questions from the public. If you missed the meeting, you can review the presentation slides here. They explain the Long Range Waterfront Plan, the draft amendment, and the next steps in the process. Following the public comment period that ends January 31, the proposed amendment would go through the Juneau Assembly public process, likely in February.
The Long Range Waterfront Plan was developed in 2004. The proposed amendment pertains only to the tidelands portion of “Area B – Subport” and is based on a recommendation of the Visitor Industry Task Force.
