Friday’s high winds in Southcentral Alaska wreaked their fair share of havoc, but the timing couldn’t have been better for CIRI‘s Fire Island Wind Project as representatives appeared at an Assembly work session this morning to tout project benefits.
Because the Assembly formally meets about once every other two weeks (plus work sessions and committee meetings) some might wonder how we spend our time outside of those gatherings. Here’s a sampler drawn from portions of my calendar:
More on the DID:
Yes, I know, it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been pretty busy, though, so here’s an update as to what’s been going on:
Next Port committee meeting:
It took a while to coordinate all the schedules but the Port committee is slated to re-convene on Thursday, October 14, at 9 am in City Hall, room 155. For a preview of the agenda see my last post on this issue.
This week’s Assembly meeting was pretty tame and ended early, but don’t expect the next two to follow the same pattern. Why? Because we’ll have public hearings on whether to renew the Downtown Improvement District (DID) on both September 14 & 28, with deliberations on the 28th. Readers will be forgiven for asking, “what’s the DID, and why is this a big deal?” so a little background might help.
