Dr. Jeremy Sorhus’ proposal to build a dental office on the eastern fourth of the 16.49 acre lot was well received, converting many of the neighbors in the room. City Manager Paul Ostrander says he also hopes to conduct a complete inventory and analysis of the city- and airport-owned properties to determine which ones should be kept and which should be sold. He says that will be a longer-term project. Dr. Sorhus: “The residents, their biggest concern was that they’re going to lose their buffer, and as much as I tried to assuage those concerns, that I want to keep that buffer there as well, the idea came to me; it’s very easy, if we could just create a permanent buffer there, just a strip of land at that south end, I could buy it as part of the sale and then donate it back, that way the residents would have it as a permanent buffer there that would never be released.” Dr. Sorhus told the council and members of the public that he wants the office to have a ‘cottage in the woods’ appearance, with minimal lighting and tree clearing. He proposed adjusting his original plans to put the entrance on Rogers Rd instead of Lawton Drive, to limit traffic in the neighborhood, and at the end of the work session said he was considering donating a portion of the land to the city, to protect nearby residents… City administrators were given a list of alternatives to explore, including putting the property out for a competitive bid, restricting the type of development which can be allowed on the property, the possibility of asking Kenai city residents to purchase the property through a bond and set it aside for permanent conservation. The land is currently owned by the city’s airport and the FAA requires that it be used to support the airport’s operations. Sorhus says he isn’t pushing the council for a quick decision, but would like some resolution in time for this year’s construction season, or next. Mayor Gabriel: “When you look at what types of development would be the least impactful to the neighborhood, Mr. Sorhus certainly seems willing to move forward in a direction that would provide a business with low impact and buffers and trees. I appreciate his willingness to do that and hopefully resolve. If I had to pick a development here, this is the one.” The meeting opened with a combative approach from residents of the Central Heights subdivision, who said they were tired of fighting this 30-year battle to keep the land as green space and a buffer from the Kenai Spur Highway and other commercial development. Others soon followed Well’s sentiments, after hearing Dr. Sorhus’ intentions for the property. No action was taken during the Tuesday work session, but Mayor Brian Gabriel said he believed this proposal could be an acceptable and relatively permanent solution… Roy Wells lives on Lawton Drive and was the first member from the public to suggest there could be room for a compromise which puts the issue to rest.
