A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF HOMER, ALASKA, APPROVING A MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF HOMER AND THE KACHEMAK NORDIC SKI CLUB REGARDING THE MAINTENANCE AND OPERATION OF NORDIC SKI TRAILS ON CITY OWNED LAND IN THE BAYCREST SKI AREA.

WHEREAS, The Kachemak Nordic Ski Club (KNSC) is a non-profit corporation which has been constructing, maintaining, and operating nordic ski trails on public and private lands for many years; and

WHEREAS, KNSC maintains a network of trails on public and private lands in the Diamond Creek Watershed known as the Baycrest Ski Trails; and

WHEREAS, The City and KNSC entered into their first MOA regarding these trails in the winter of 2008 and that agreement has expired; and

WHEREAS, The City and KNSC wish to enter into a new MOA and a draft document was submitted to the City Council for its review at its regular meeting on November 25, 2013; and

WHEREAS, An MOA between the City and KNSC is in the best interest of the public because it promotes public-private partnerships, saves tax dollars, enhances recreational and economic development opportunities, and provides access to public lands for the use and enjoyment of all.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Homer City Council hereby approves a new Memorandum of Agreement between the City of Homer and the Kachemak Nordic Ski Club, a copy of which is attached and incorporated herein.
