Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Assembly Lands and Resources Committee takes up the proposals for use of the CBJ Hurlock Avenue property vacated recently by Juneau Youth Services during a Noon time meeting Monday.
The Glory Hole has withdrawn its application. Five remain. They are from Alaska Legacy Partners, an assisted living facility for seniors; Aunt Margaret’s House, a halfway house and seasonal housing facility; Gehring Nursery School, for preschool child care; Polaris House, a mental healthcare service; the Glory Hole homeless shelter; and Prama Home, Inc., which would combine preschool education, senior care, and services for homeless youth.
Deputy Mayor Jerry Nankervis serves on the committee. He thinks they all have aspects that are very appealing. "Now whether they're appealing and workable in that location and in that facility, I don't know, but all of them have admirable goals and have things that are appealing to their proposal."
No public testimony will be taken at the meeting. The panel will take up the issue again during a meeting February 26 at which time its expected to forward a recommendation to the full Assembly for consideration.
The meeting will be held in Assembly Chambers at City Hall.
