Dan Himebauch, with Northside Investments, states the project purpose is to remove and sell mineral material (sand, gravel, and peat) from the project site, and then sell finished graded lots. Work being purposed, the applicant has previously performed work on the site under the Corps of Engineers (Corps) permit, POA-2004-01127 M1-M9, for the purpose of the development and sale of subdivision lots in the Bentley Trust North Subdivision (Lots 6-45). Fill material in 36.9 acres of wetlands for the construction of roads, sewer and water utilities, and driveways were approved by the Corps in the individual permit issued on August 29, 2008. In the future, the applicant proposes to use clean fill to backfill areas that are mined for mineral materials in order to recontour the area and prepare the commercial lots for sale. The applicant does not intend to place any additional fill beyond the originally permitted 36.9 acres. Vegetation in portions of the site (to include Tract A and B) will be cut and removed in the winter to curb homeless occupation. Fill will not be placed in Tract A or B. The gravel project will be constructed and operated over multiple seasons, and the project lifespan will be based on material sales. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-4), dated October 16, 2020. The project is located within Section 2, T. 1 S., R.1 W., Fairbanks Meridian; USGS Quad Map Fairbanks D-2, Latitude 64.861° N., Longitude 147.684° W., In Fairbanks North Star Borough, Northside Business Park, Lots 1-45; In Fairbanks, Alaska.
