Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor and Assembly
We, the undersigned, are Cooper Landing community members united in our support of a concrete batch plant in general, but are staunchly opposed to the proposed location on Snug Harbor Road.

Snug Harbor Road is an inappropriate location; concrete trucks would be traveling through a residential neighborhood and encountering traffic that includes buses carrying senior housing residents and children from Camp K, work trucks from Chugach Electric, food and fuel services, plus boat trailers, motorhomes and other recreational vehicles. Cooper Landing Emergency Services is on Snug Harbor Road close to the intersection of the Sterling Highway. The CLES supports a wide region of the eastern peninsula and in the summer months is very busy, requiring immediate access to the highway with emergency vehicles. The Cooper Landing post office is also on Snug Harbor Road close the to Sterling Highway intersection, with traffic in and out of the parking area daily.

Excessive speeding is a problem on Snug Harbor Road, creating unsafe conditions for pedestrians and bicyclists. The road beyond Shackleford Creek is particularly unsafe without a separated bike path and several hidden driveways along a sloped curve. Adding concrete trucks to this situation is untenable.

There is a simple and safe solution, re-location of the plant. Four potential sites, as identified on the KPB website, are: 1) Parcel ##11912417, owned by KPB, just east of Sunrise Inn and in use by DOT for the Bypass project; 2) parcel #11930026, owned by DNR; 3) parcel #11930026, owned by DNR; and 4) the Chugach sub-station at Dave’s Creek, a 40-acre parcel recently proposed for a gravel pit. These four sites are on the Sterling Highway, providing ease, safety and accessibility.

We ask the Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor and Assembly for your help in relocation of the proposed plant. Please delay any vote on the plant until a solution can be found. If re-zone is required, we ask that there be a temporary emergency re-zone in order to resolve this contentious issue.
