Mr. Oscar Johnson was present and inquired about the owner- <br />ship north of the harbor and Chairman Leirer indentifed the Alaska Railroad <br />and the City of Seward as being the owners in that location. There being <br />no one else who desired to be heard Chairman Leirer closed the Public Hearing. <br />Commission discussion followed and Commissioner Gilman seconded by Commission <br />Lammers moved to recommend to the City Council to lease to the Chugach Develop- <br />ment Corp. the necessary space for current development and to provide an <br />option for five years (5) on an additional parcel of land needed for construct- <br />ion of a second forty-five (45) units reserving enough land to support additional <br />Small Boat Harbor development and public access. Motion passed unanimously by <br />both Harbor and Planning and Zoning Commissions. <br /> <br />Item 4- Review of Ordinance No. 409 A, AN ORDINANCE DETERMINING THE LOCATION <br />FOR FUTURE CONSTRUCTION OF BULK PETROLEUM FOR GAS STORAGE TANKS WITHIN THE <br />CITY OF SEWARD.
