Fairbanks Diocese may lease geothermal lands in western Alaska

The Fairbanks Catholic Diocese wants to sell or lease land with geothermal potential on the Seward Peninsula. The Diocese plans to put out a request for proposals in January for development of land it owns at Pilgrim Hot Springs, about 60 miles north of Nome. Diocese Deacon and Finance Director George Bowder says the church has fielded a lot of interest in the property.
