Recap of CBJ Housing Efforts
 The Assembly recognized housing was a very
significant issue in 2012-13 and continues to be:
 Allocating land for affordable housing.
 Working to resolve FEMA Flood Maps completed Phase
one in August getting into more detailed analysis with
FEMA now Phase II and are working on a joint Risk Map
Assessment program (looking at all hazards).
 Subdivision Tax Deferral Program was supported.
 Currently going through the process with Engineering,
Lands, Planning Commission and Assembly to review
and simplify standards in an effort to reduce the cost of
housing.
So, where are we
now? Key Drivers:
population and
employment growth
continued during
2012 & 2013.
Juneau’s population hit
another all-time high last
year, growing by more than
400 people to 32,832.
Juneau’s employment picture
was also on the uptick
despite government sector
job cutbacks as the private
sector added positions from
2011.
