On Thursday the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly approved the first reading of an ordinance that will rezone the landfill from a combination public use and conservation zone to an industrial zone. Borough Manager Bud Cassidy said the rezone is necessary for upcoming improvements to the landfill.

— (Borough Rezone 1 :17 “We’re undergoing construction…industrial occur.”)

Duane Dvorak is an associate planner for the borough’s community development department. Dvorak said the planning and zoning commission have decided not to rezone the area within a designated green belt at the landfill.

— (Borough Rezone 2 :40 “I think that was in deference… things in the future.”)

The assembly approved the first reading of the ordinance, which will now move to a second reading and public hearing during the next assembly meeting on February 7.
