Comprehensive Plan Update

Kodiak Island Borough, Alaska

Matt Hastie (under previous employment) managed this effort for this 4.4 million acre area and its 10 local communities.  The Plan provides a framework for future decisions about land use, transportation, the natural environment, housing, economic development, public facilities and a host of other issues.

Team members researched and updated information on existing conditions and future trends; drafted new goals and policies; created an overall land use plan; developed a detailed implementation plan; prepared draft and final Plan documents; and presented information to Borough staff, Planning and Zoning Commission, and Assembly members.  The team also conducted an extensive public involvement program, including public and community group meetings; media releases, meeting flyers and other informational materials; and a project website.  Over the course of the project, Matt facilitated over 35 meetings in nearly every community in the Borough, including community-wide events and meetings with specific groups throughout the Borough.  This led to strong support for the Comprehensive Plan and a high level of credibility among Borough residents and stakeholders.
