Heliski ordinance advances


October 19, 2017

The assembly advanced an ordinance that revises the process for non-temporary amendments to the borough’s commercial ski tour areas map.

Every three years the borough considers changes to the ski map.

The tourism advisory board and the parks and recreation committee voted Aug. 10 to strike the reference to the Northern Wild Sheep and Goat Council when superimposing management recommendations for ski area changes. Alaska Department of Fish and Game uses NWSGC data when it makes its recommendations.

The ordinance is scheduled for a public hearing during the assembly’s Oct. 24 meeting.
