The City and Borough of Wrangell, states the project purpose is to develop land for single family residential lots. The applicant's “Comprehensive Plan” identified that privately offered residential lots or homes were not keeping up with demand for residential housing, and the Borough identified municipal owned lots that were suitable for single or multi-family residential lots. The proposed project area was identified and zoned for light residential use and the proposed development project would allow access to the 40 single family lots. Work being proposed, Discharge up to 11,400 cubic yards of shot rock material into 3.36 acres of wetlands in order to construct a 4,200-foot long, 44.7-foot wide toe-to-toe road which would allow access to the future single family residential lots. The road would include a 24-foot top width for driving, a 2-foot wide gutter between the driving area and sidewalk, a 5-foot wide sidewalk, and a 1.5:1 side slope embankment (approximately 5-foot wide embankment). The proposed project would also install water lines, fire hydrants, sewer lines, manholes and 20 wood power poles. These items would all be located within the footprint of the proposed road, except for 2,008 linear feet of one sewer line. This sewer line would be installed through multiple lots and in a 10-foot wide trench. After installation, the trench would be backfilled with excavated material. Culverts would be installed at several drainages and at one stream through the constructed road to allow for the hydrology of the area to be maintained. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-16), dated April 12, 2021. The project site is located at Latitude 56.4160º N., Longitude 132.3423º W.; at the Wrangell Institute site, in Wrangell, Alaska.
