Pay attention to development

Apache seismic exploration in Cook Inlet wanting private property owners’ cooperation by at North Pen. rec meeting were told if didn’t giver permission, another company maybe could. Development will be from Homer to Point Possession. Money from permanent fund are from sub-surface rights not from surface rights. Alaskans still have surface rights otherwise angle drill or use state, federal or borough land, etc. Private property (tax payers) own surface rights. Apache, largest land lease owners in the Cook Inlet. Alaskans aren’t anti-development, but worried now development is done. Nikiski area is in phase one. Nodes will be placed 165 feet apart. Asking 1,000 private land owners permission. July permitting process, August survey crews will arrive and in September, live crews will start. Will end 2014. Duane Bannock (KSRM Radio) had Lisa Parker on Sound-Off. Many callers had questions. We must all watch development for the future of our children and our grandchildren seeing no elected officials at this meeting, call them for answers. Election is coming soon. I ran for borough mayor last election not asking for your vote, but to speak for the future of now the state of Alaska. Tim and Roberta O’Brien, homestead residents in the territory of Alaska.
