Zoning in the Remote Outlying Areas of the Borough

The Wrangell Borough Assembly approved the Ordinance Amending Title 20 Zoning on January 22, 2013.

For the last two years, the Planning and Zoning Commission has been working with residents in the remote settlement areas of Farm Island, Thoms Place, Olive Cove, Meyers Chuck, Union Bay and Wrangell Island East to develop zoning requirements for their specific area. 

Several workshops and public hearings were held to receive input from landowners and residents within the remote subareas.

The draft ordinance was forwarded to the Assembly for review and action.  The first reading of the ordinance and draft maps was at the Assembly meeting on January 8, 2013.  The second reading and public hearing was held before the Borough Assembly on January 22, 2013.
