Land and Resource Management

 LMBDivisionThe Land & Resource Management Division has two main functions. Under Land and Resource Sales, Borough owned properties conveyed from the State of Alaska as Municipal Entitlement Lands, acquired through tax special assessment foreclosure, purchase, exchange or donation are used to generate revenue through sales, leases, and permits. Tax- and LID-foreclosed properties are sold and put back on the tax roll. In addition to offering land for sale, Land Management permits a variety of uses on borough-owned land, such as sites for tourism activities, float plane tie-downs, industrial and commercial staging areas, campsites and access to remote cabins.

Under Resource Management we recommend the highest and best use for borough-owned land and manage land that has been retained for continued borough ownership to provide sites for public facilities.

These include the reservation and dedication, in conjunction with the Division of Recreational Services, management, maintenance of recreational trails, public use lands such as parks, greenbelts, and public facilities. Marketing and selling material (sand, gravel and peat), timber, and other renewable resources is also provided.

In addition, large economic development projects such as the ski area at Hatcher Pass and port development at Port MacKenzie are managed and developed.

The Land and Resource Management Division follows adopted "Policy & Procedures" that can be viewed at the following link. LMD Policy & Procedures Manual
