“Casual Use” means a use of borough land that is nonexclusive and involves only minimal disturbance to the land.  Nonexclusive examples of a casual use are hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing, camping for less than fourteen days, picnicking, cross-country skiing, snow machining; berry picking, brushing survey lines or trails where roots are not disturbed, livestock drives, and the use of all-terrain vehicles off an established road or right-of-way but on an existing trail. Casual use of borough land does not create an interest in the title of the land and does not require a permit.  Casual use is defined in KPB code 17.10.190 and 17.10.250(c). 

The casual use activity may be conducted on vacant property that is not for sale, is not occupied by another use, and is not currently leased or permitted to another user.  Depending on the type of casual use, there may be additional guidelines to follow.  Below are links to guidelines to the most common casual uses of borough land: 

Guidelines for Gathering Dead Trees on KPB Land

Guidelines for Gather Berries/Mushrooms on KPB Land

If you have any question on whether or not your activity falls under a casual use please contact the Land Management Division. 

 

Helpful Hint:  To locate borough lands, use the KPB Simple Parcel Viewer. Information on how to use the Parcel Viewer can be found in the Parcel Viewer Help Guide.
