Mr. Kibby noted that he had previously made an error in a response the Manager regarding the land trades that were going on between Mental Health and the CBJ; in particular, the 50 acres at 7 mile. (The proposal had to go back before the Planning Commission and he thought that everything had been done.) He said that in the future, when the Assembly’s Land Committee is once again up and running, that they should take a closer look at the land disposal ordinance and see if there is a way to come up with more binding verbiage. He said they went through all this work to put the land disposal program together and he could see, as time passes, that things will change and there may be a need for modification but not to the extent that land is not disposed of. Right now, this is part of a building block for the community. If a private citizen wants to buy a lot, they want to know what is happening to the land around them. They can look at this plan, but right now it is like starting over. You have to go back before the Planning Commission and, according to Title 29, we have to ask for their advice in the way it is structured and their recommendations would come back in the form of regulations. They were discussing additional parklands, not just easements or right-of-ways, but it took on another area that the Assembly has only addressed.
