Proposed Land Acquisition and Gravel Conditional Use Permit

Council Members:
The Meadow Lakes Community Council has the opportunity to obtain 40 acres of land from the Mat-Su Borough for less than market value. The parcel adjoins our current Park/Senior facility. The opportunity is contingent on membership approval ofthe Conditional Use Permit for gravel mining on the adjoining acreage. The final permit and land acquisition must be approvedby the Assembly. Please see maps below and vote using Election Buddy ballot sent to you by email, absentee, or at the meeting on May 12.

Yes Vote: to approve the Conditional Use Permit for gravel extraction AND approve the Council acquiring the 40 acres. This would protect the 40 acres we acquire and require the mining contractor to reclaim the adjoining 80 acres for public use, perhaps for a school, at the end of the 15-year mining period. The Borough has met all of our requirements as to buffers, berms, hours of operation, traffic flow, and reclamation plan (see Detailed Project Description).
 
No Vote: to oppose the Conditional Use Permit for gravel extraction and its protections of the Senior Center via the proposed buffer; AND oppose the Council acquiring the 40 acres. This will not exclude gravel extraction in the future.
 
Please call 520-465-6856 if you have questions.
