Client: Kodiak Island Borough
Location: Kodiak, AK
Project Date: 2010-2012
Project Lead: Shanna Zuspan + Chris Beck
Agnew::Beck was contracted to revise the Borough’s comprehensive subdivision, zoning and real property codes. Our team is working closely with a Project Advisory Committee formed to represent the diverse interests of Kodiak residents, businesses owners, and stakeholders. Representatives included Native corporations, people with experience in rural Kodiak and members of the Planning + Zoning Commission and Assembly. Planning consultants conducted an independent technical review of the development codes to identify potential improvements. A Code Review Workbook was developed summarizing those possibilities and integrating community input from focus groups, business groups, rural representatives and other interests. Additional review and refinement occurred during the fall of 2011; the full revised draft code sections are being finalized and prepared for a final round of public and interest group review.
