Common thread in CRPC's efforts is new taxing power in Anchor Point

Posted: Monday, July 07, 2003

Kenai Peninsula Borough Assemblywoman Milli Martin and Community Rivers and Planning Coalition's Lindsay Winkler are deliberately misleading us when they say that there is no "consensus" among CRPC members concerning the establishment of a recreational service area in the Anchor Point area.

Page 8 of CRPC's "Draft Community Rivers Sustainable Development Plan" states that it is one of their three- to five-year goals "to determine municipal incorporation or village boundary, and put (it) on the ballot for an advisory vote."

Whether or not CRPC wants a new community building is not the point behind their shenanigans. It doesn't matter if it's a community center, a new harbor or taking over control of the Anchor River parks; CRPC's common thread in all of these projects is the establishment of a new taxing power in the lives of Anchor Pointers.

If Milli Martin and CRPC truly want to find ways to bring this community together as opposed to placing it against each other, they should try being honest instead of misleading.
