The Strauss Family Trust, states the purpose of the project is to enclose and protect the existing support posts for the outer wall of the house and to allow reconfiguring of support of the deck and  foundation.  The house foundation is within one to two feet of the existing stacked rock seawall/retaining wall.  The close proximity of the house to the wall puts the house’s stability at risk due to concerns regarding soil mechanics and deficiencies of the existing wall.

The project site is located at Latitude 55.3138º N., Longitude 131.5904º W.; 2954 South Tongass Highway, in Ketchikan, Alaska.  Please contact Mrs. Roberta Budnik at (907) 753-2785, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at: if further information is desired concerning this notice.
