SITKA, ALASKA The National Park Service has signed an option to buy 3 acres of undeveloped Sheldon Jackson campus property.
Sitka National Historical Park superintendent Mary Miller told the Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday (7-8-09) that while no deal had yet been struck, the park wanted to acquire the additional property along the Indian River, which many assume is already included in the park.
Miller said some SJ tidelands would also help buffer park resources. She suggested that the National Park Service would frown on any development of the SJ Campus that was inconsistent with its status as a historic landmark.
Here’s a brief excerpt of her remarks:
