KSKA: Wednesday 8/31 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm

After a decade of citizen, consultant and city planning elbow grease, the rewrite of Anchorage’s land use code is nearing the finish line of one very long marathon. The last big hurdle comes when the plan re-emerges from the Mayor’s Office. Comment and implementation timetables are still fuzzy.

Join host Kathleen McCoy and her guests as they talk about the five most controversial aspects of the Title 21 rewrite, and what the thinking behind those changes is. Join us with your questions and ideas about the future face of Anchorage.
