The Sitka Assembly wants to make room for tiny houses in city code, but the process to create regulations around them is moving at a snail shell’s pace. At a meeting on Tuesday (2-11-20) the group passed an amended version of new rules and regulations for tiny houses, but now the code has to come back to the assembly two more times.
The City of Sitka wants to have some regulations in place by the time the public use of marijuana becomes legal in Alaska on February 24. At a Town Hall Meeting Monday night (1-19-15) residents had the chance to offer their opinions on where and if marijuana should be used in public places in the community. And as you might expect with a controversial topic like marijuana, there were opinions to spare.
