The future tenants on the former land of the Juneau Youth Services property will be a topic of discussion during the City and Borough Assembly Committee of the Whole meeting in Assembly Chambers at 6 p.m. Monday, March 19.
The property, located at 9290 Hurlock Ave., has been vacant since JYS left at the end of the year. The Assembly Lands Committee were presented five applicants during its Feb. 12 meeting and moved forward with three recommendations to the Assembly during its Feb. 26 meeting.
The three applicants the committee picked were Gehring Nursery School, assisted living facility Alaska Legacy Partners and mental illness support and recovery center Polaris House. Aunt Margaret’s House, transitional housing for people coming out of prison, and Prama Home, a child- and senior-care facility, were the other two applicants. Committee member Jerry Nankervis pointed out during the Feb. 26 meeting that the Assembly has options and selling the property for fair market value is one of them.
The meeting will be a work session and therefore no public comment will be taken. Written comments may be sent to the Assembly at BoroughAssembly@juneau.org.
