Assembly delays decision on Title 17.02 until November

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Just one of the several ordinances that the Mat Su Borough Assembly postponed at their last meeting deals with mandatory land use permits and certified site plans.  The Planning Commission took a look at the proposal, heard public testimony and has come up with a proposal of their own.  But discussion on the proposal by the Assembly has now been postponed until November.
