KODIAK, Alaska - A plan to turn the site for a composting plant on Kodiak Island into an RV park has been approved.
The Kodiak Mirror (http://is.gd/6rGwo0) says The Kodiak Island Borough Planning and Zoning Commission approved landowner Bill Wren's plan for an RV park on a 5-acre plot not far from the American River's mouth. The plot is the same one being leased for a plant to convert sewage waste and logging scraps into garden compost.
Wren says his initial intention was to install RV parking spaces for worker housing at the plant site, but the zoning commission shot down that idea over mixed-use concerns.
The zoning commission voted 4-1 in favor of the RV park proposal.
Wren says he wants something to fall back on if the composting plant falls through.
