The Big Lake Comprehensive Plan

Community Introduction: Big Lake is facing challenges and opportunities associated with growth in rural Alaska. As in many other parts of the state, many Big Lake residents are concluding that while they don’t welcome the idea of planning, or more meetings, they nonetheless want to have a voice in the growth of their community. In 1996, the Big Lake Community Council developed its first Comprehensive Plan, which was approved by the MSB Assembly. A little over a decade later, Big Lake has elected to update that plan to address the challenges and opportunities facing the community today and into the future.

Key components of this plan include a broad, long-term vision for Big Lake’s future; policies to guide land use, growth, and development; priorities to improve public facilities and services; and policies to promote economic development, retain community character and protect the natural environment.

Wow! This really is a "Comprehensive" report by any measure. Looks like it's ready for an update. The article says it was last updated in 2006, that's before the Roundabout and the 907 Club and legal Cannabis business, etc.

Perhaps this is an opportunity to open a discussion and update or revise the plan, considering the many changes to Big Lake since 2006.

People can get involved in the planning and growth of Big Lake, or can't complain when things don't "go their way." How? Join the Community Council!
