Community Signs Discussions to be held November 27

To everyone in the community:

I am holding a community meeting on Wednesday, November 27 from Noon to One, in the Sea Otter Community Center to discuss SIGNS.

This discussion will be one of two community discussions I will sponsor over the next three weeks. We as a community need to prioritize where signs are needed, what types of signs they should be and what they should say. As a starting point I indicated on the Byways grant that we will have signs at the OtterBahn, Rocky Ridge Trail and in the new Gateway Pavilion to be built on the harbor front.

These signs will be interpretive and informational. They will be fairly large and are required per the grant award. In addition to these signs we need to prioritize directional signage through the community to assist visitors. We have all seen tourists standing here or there with maps in their hands wondering which way to go. We need to address this issue for sure.

Please show up and help out.

“All of KPBSD is proud of Sunni taking the helm of the AASB board,” said Dr. Steve Atwater, Superintendent. “I know that she is well regarded by her peers from across the state and will do an excellent job.”

“This recognition is another indicator of how highly esteemed our school district is throughout the state of Alaska,” said KPBSD Board President Joe Arness.
