The CIP places a new drop-off zone at Houghtaling Elementary School at the top of the prioritized list, followed closely by a roof replacement for that same school.
The plan calls for both projects to be completed by 2018. The new drop-off area for
Houghtaling would move quite a bit of traffic off of Baranof Avenue, which currently has a lot of congestion just before and after school.
The new drop-off zone in front the school, on the south end of the building, is estimated to cost $588,000. The roof replacement is estimated at $3.4 million.
In order of priority, other items on the CIP are security upgrades for Ketchikan High School; mechanical upgrades and a new roof at Point Higgins Elementary; and new biomass boilers at Kayhi.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. in Borough Assembly chambers at the White Cliff building. Public comment will be heard at the start and end of the meeting.
