JDCM 85.22.340 "Alaska Coastal-Ellis Airlines," 1963, courtesy of CBJ.
Join CBJ City Manager Rorie Watt, CBJ Airport Manager Patty Wahto and her husband Doug, and CBJ Lands and Resources Manager Greg Chaney as they verbally build Juneau's development history from the ground up and explain why our town grew up the way it did. Topics will include the influence of the automobile on the grocery store; Casey Shattuck neighborhood as the first "pedestrian suburb"; how the Alaska Juneau Mine shaped population growth; the airplanes of downtown Main Street and Auke Bay; and more. There will be a question and answer session following the presentations.
