NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING CANCELLATION
The Valdez Planning and Zoning Commission will NOT be holding a public hearing on
Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at 7:00 PM in the City Council Chambers. The original purpose of
the hearing was to take public testimony on the request from Harris Sand and Gravel for a
Conditional Use Permit for materials sorting (asphalt and concrete plants) for two (2) years
while the new harbor project is under construction. Harris Sand & Gravel is only placing office
trailers and a test lab on the property. This only requires a Land Use Permit (LUP), which does
not require a Notice of Public Hearing.
The area is located at 201 S. Harbor Drive (Tract S, Harbor Subdivision).
