National heritage area proposed

Posted: Wednesday, September 24, 2008

KENAI - A national heritage area is being proposed for Southcentral Alaska.

A Senate panel has approved the plan, which would establish Alaska's first national heritage area. The National Park Service would administer the Kenai Mountains-Turnagain Arm National Heritage Area. Funding also would be made available to community organizations for tourism and historic preservation projects.

The heritage area would include the communities of Cooper Landing, Girdwood, Hope, Seward and Whittier. Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski said no land would enter federal control and private property rights would not be affected.
