Survey asks about vision for Jesse Lee Home property

    The former Jesse Lee Home in Seward.

    Seward, Alaska (KSRM) - The future of the Jesse Lee Home property is up for debate now that the home has been demolished.

    The City of Seward’s Community Development Department presented a resolution to the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission and recommended that the Seward City Council rezone the site that formerly was home to the Jesse Lee Home.

    According to KSRM, the rezoning would be from a multi-family residential property to a park property totaling 2.66 acres.

    The commission postponed the public hearing for the rezoning to Dec. 1, to allow citizens to offer input.

    They will be holding a work session on Nov. 17 at 6 p.m.

    Any interested participants are asked to e-mail planning@cityofseward.net for more details on how to become involved.

    In the meantime, the City of Seward is hosting an online survey to gauge public opinion which can be found online.
