Michele Elfers, City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ) Parks and Recreation Department (PRD), 155 S. Seward Street, Juneau, Alaska 99801, michele.elfers@juneau.gov, states the purpose is to develop off road vehicle (ORV) recreation opportunities to help foster a sense of community and create job opportunities in an underserved sector of the outdoor recreation community, as well as provide economic benefits for the community. The applicant proposes to discharge a total of 5,365 cubic yards of fill material into 1.25-acres of wetlands for the construction of an ORV park. The proposed project would include approximately five miles of riding trails, a parking and entry area, a mud pit feature, and a cross country riding area. Up to 4,546 cubic yards of shot rock, geotextile, and logs would be discharged into 1.07-acre of wetlands to construct the trails. Trails would be eight feet wide with occasional wider turnout areas. Turnout areas would be located in upland areas only. Where conditions permit, a corduroy building technique would be employed, utilizing trees cleared from the site as a base. The trail would clear-span one stream. Up to 438 cubic yards of shot rock borrow, clay, mud, and logs would be discharged into 0.12-acre of wetlands to construct a 110-foot by 50-foot mud pit with a sediment trap. The mud pit would consist of two mud bogs and entry and exit trails, which would be constructed utilizing a clay liner, 12-inches of shot rock, and saturated, non-organic mud. A sediment trap on the downhill side would be constructed as a detention area with a 6-inch shot rock base to collect and settle sediment. Up to 381 cubic yards of shot rock and geotextile would be discharged into 0.05-acre of wetlands to construct a 1.5-acre parking area at the entrance to the site. The parking lot would consist of a gravel lot with 4-foot of rock fill in the wetland. The 5,000 square foot cross country riding area would be located in a previously logged area at the north end of the site. Trails would not be constructed, and fill would not be added in this area. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-11), dated March 11, 2023. The project site is located within Sections 25 & 36, T. 37 S., R. 63 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Maps Juneau C-3 NW & SW; Latitude 58.6260º N., Longitude 134.9350º W.; Mile Marker 35 Alaska Highway 7, near Juneau, Alaska.
