Visitor Industry Task Force to hold public comment meeting

Here’s your second chance to weigh in.

City and Borough of Juneau’s Visitor Industry Task Force will take public testimony Saturday.

The meeting starts at 10 a.m. at City Hall, 155 S. Seward St.

The Visitor Industry Task Force was created in October by Mayor Beth Weldon to evaluate CBJ’s approach to managing the visitor industry, consider CBJ’s long-range waterfront plan and weigh pros and cons of possible management strategies. This will be the second public comment meeting. The task force held a meeting specifically for testimony earlier this month.

[Locals testify about need for tourism regulation]

At this meeting, people will be given three minutes to speak and can also submit comments ahead of time to city.clerk@juneau.org.

Comments can be sent to that email at any time, and public comments are being archived online at the Visitor Industry Task Force webpage.
