Planning Commission



Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and CDC guidelines, the January 25, 2021 meeting will not be physically open to the public.  The public is invited to participate along with the Planning Commission and staff via teleconferencing. The meeting will be held through Zoom.  To join the meeting from a computer visit  https://zoom.us/j/2084259541. To attend the Zoom meeting by telephone call toll free 1-888-788-0099 or 1-877-853-5247. When calling in you will need the Meeting ID 208 425 9541. If you connect by computer and do not have speakers or a microphone, connect online and then select phone for audio. A box will come up with toll free numbers, the Meeting ID, and your participant number. If you have any issues connecting to the meeting please call (907) 714-2200.  This number is for assistance only and not public comment.

When joining the meeting the video and microphones will automatically be turned off.  Staff will continue to monitor and will keep video and microphones off during the meeting.  When public testimony or comment is allowed staff will request that you use the "raise hand" feature of zoom.  This may be found by clicking on your name and finding the ... symbol.  When staff sees your hand raised they will let the Chair know and your microphone will be unmuted.  Staff will let you know when your alloted time to speak is done.  Once all those that raised their hand have spoken, staff will alert everyone that everyone will be unmuted to allow anyone having issues with the "raise hand" an opportunity to speak.  Please be patient during this process.  If calling from a phone please use *9 to raise your hand.  


Moose Range Ridge Estates Oehler Replat
KPB File: 2020-155; [Segesser Surveys/Oehler Family Trust]
Location: Sandlin Street & Velma Avenue


Public notice is hereby given that a petition was received on 12/18/20 to vacate a public right-of-way in the Seward Recording District, Remote Area. Location & Request: Vacate Essick Remote NW right-of-way south of intersection with Gene Smart Remote NW as dedicated on Caribou Island Amended, Plat SW-37. The right-of-way being vacated is 100 feet in width, unconstructed, and located within the North 1/2 of Section 25, Township 4 North, Range 7 West, Seward Meridian, Alaska, within the Kenai Peninsula Borough. KPB File 2020-154V. Purpose as stated in petition: Our reason for requesting to vacate a portion of the 100’ wide access right-of-way is to reclaim back and repair the damaged eroding lake bank of that portion (50’ or more) of our property that is mistakenly used as the “assumed location” of the 100’ right of way by past and present property owners. We would like to vacate the remaining area and offer an alternate 30’ right of way on the east boundary of our lot, Lot 7 Block 3 Caribou Island, plat SW-37. There are no 60’ right of ways that have been platted or dedicated so we would like to match the 2 other 30’ right of ways to the east..  Anyone wishing to testify may attend the above meeting via teleconference or may submit a written statement to the attention of Julie Hindman, KPB Planning Department, 144 N. Binkley St., Soldotna, AK 99669. The Planning Department recommends that written comments be received by 1:00 P.M., Friday, January 22, 2020. [Written comments may also be sent by email to the addresses below or by Fax to 907-714-2378]. If the Planning Commission approves the vacations, the Borough Assembly has thirty days from that decision in which they may veto the Planning Commission approval. Denial of a vacation petition is a final act for which no further consideration shall be given by the Kenai Peninsula Borough.
