TO: Mayor Hornaday and Homer City Council
FROM: Homer Advisory Planning Commission
DATE: March 9, 2012
SUBJ: Land Allocation Plan
The Homer Advisory Planning Commission (HAPC) respectfully declines to participate in the Land Allocation Process. There are other avenues to provide input regarding land allocation should the need arise. Personal comments can be submitted by any member of the HAPC, but they will not be representing the Planning Commission.
The current structure of review is not an effective or useful use of the Commission’s time. The process and timeframe do not allow for any meaningful dialogue between the HAPC and the Council.
The Commission is not provided information to make decisions on; we are presented with hundreds of pages of properties and their designations. The HAPC could spend hours reviewing and discussing the numerous properties to no avail.
The Comprehensive Plan serves as the guiding document for future Land Use discussion outside of the code regulations in the City of Homer. Staff is the best resource for adherence to the Comprehensive Plan and Title 21.
