Frontiersman Article: Wasilla council debates planned pot shop adjacent to city limits

Webpage: https://goo.gl/EBFLFe
“At issue is a planned marijuana retail establishment application to be located at 3361 West Machen Road. That places it adjacent to Wasilla city limit boundaries. The borough planning commission is expected to hold a public hearing concerning the application at its July 17 meeting.

Burney said he pulled it off the consent agenda and moved it to new business because he wanted additional information on the city’s request for a “no sales” buffer zone around the city limits.  Mayor Bert Cottle explained that while marijuana sales are legal in most of the Mat-Su, residents of Wasilla voted down similar sales inside city limits. Cottle said following the borough vote, the city requested a 1,000-foot buffer around its boundaries. The mayor said at one point, the assembly considered 500 feet but ultimately rejected any buffer.”

To expand services while cutting costs 

In your opinion, what are MEA's greatest opportunities and challenges and how will you serve to best meet those on behalf of MEA members?

The greatest challenge is the growth of the valley. We need to make sure we have the proper infrastructure to handle the growing population, and to do it in a fiscally responsible manner. This is why i want to serve on the Board

Seldon Road Extension & Church Road Intersection
 
Communications on Seldon Road & Church Road Intersection

  • The intersection is NOT in Meadow Lakes RSA, it is in RSA 28.
  • MLCC CANNOT submit a CIP request, RSA 28 must submit it.
  • The intersection is controlled by the State, NOT DOT
    • DOT accident statistics (which lag 2-3 years behind current year) are not yet going to have captured any effect that these changes might have had.
    • If DOT start to see a spike, then they will work with their counterparts at the Mat-Su on coming up with recommendations to address the problem.
    • Recommends that you also email the RSA and Borough about getting a "Stop Ahead" sign added to their road.

Conclusion: Write RSA 28 and the Mat-Su Borough that Seldon Road Extension needs a " Stop Ahead " sign before the intersection with Church Road.
