Mr. Christian Buschmann, P.O. Box 898, Petersburg, Alaska 99833, states the purpose is to construct roadway access and utilities for a residential and fishing storage development, as well as construct pads for vacation rental cabins, a private residence, and a fishing gear storage warehouse and shed. Discharge up to 25,800 cubic yards of shot rock fill material into a total of 3.14 acres of wetlands in order to construct a road and two building pads. The road would be 1,250 feet long with a top width of 17 feet and a bottom width varying from 30 to 40 feet wide. Within the road, a 6-inch diameter HDPE waterline would be placed. Power poles would be placed along the road for above ground power utilities. Up to a total of 2.7 cubic yards of crushed rock would be placed with nine poles for stabilization. An approximately 194 foot long by 87 foot wide fill pad would be constructed on the south side of the road for the construction of four vacation rental cabins. At the end of the road, an approximately 400 foot long by 100 foot wide fill pad would be constructed for the applicant’s residence, warehouse, and shed. At the north end of this pad, the northwest corner would be extended for the house (see project drawings for dimensions). To construct the proposed road and fill pads which will house the water line, four to eight feet of muskeg overlaying hard pan clay would be removed and replaced with shot rock. For those filled areas which do not house the water line, soil stabilizing fabric would be placed over the muskeg and up to three feet of shot rock would be placed on top of the fabric. The road would cross four streams and culverts would be installed for each crossing. Each culvert would be approximately 46 foot long and width would vary depending on the width of the stream. The inlets and outlets of the culverts would have riprap stream channel liners installed within the footprint of the road dimensions. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-5), dated March 2023. The project site is located at Latitude 56.7888º N., Longitude 132.9574º W.; 1141 feet east of 300 Airport Bypass Road, in Petersburg, Alaska.
