On Monday, March 12th, the CBJ Mining Ordinance Subcommittee unanimously approved the mining ordinance without any significant changes for recommendation to the Committee of the Whole. The approved draft had been revised by city attorney Amy Mead, for clarity. We are relieved by the subcommittee's decision to protect the health, safety, and well-being of the people of Juneau by keeping the socio-economic impact study in the ordinance and wish to thank the hard work and diligence of all subcommittee members.
We expect the ordinance to be added to the Committee of the Whole's agenda on Monday, April 16th. We encourage everyone interested to monitor the city's calendar (link) and keep a watch for the ordinance to be added to the agenda. We will continue to provide updates on this site and notify the public of any opportunities to participate in this process.
