Future of Borough-owned Panguingue lands

The Denali Borough is requesting public comment on the classification of Borough-owned lands east of the Panguingue Creek subdivision.

As we all remember, the Denali Borough recently completed an exhaustive process of identifying and selecting lands to be included in its municipal entitlement. These lands were conveyed to the borough by the State of Alaska last year. According to its own Municipal Code, the borough must classify these lands prior to making any management decisions about them. The borough will be holding public hearings on a portion of the entitlement lands listed as Panguingue B. To view these lands on a map click here.   To refresh your memory on classification categories, view the ordinance here. Over the years DCC has commented on our vision for lands west of Healy. recommending that these lands be exempted from gas exploration and development. This vision will be reflected in our suggestions for proposed classification. We will have additional suggestions as well. If you have any questions or recommendations for our comments, please contact us (see below).

Attend a hearing and comment
These lands are near existing property and their disposal and use will be significant to the homeowners and residents in the Panguingue Creek Homeowners Association area.
