Juneau: New CBJ Webpage Answers Voter Questions About New City Hall
AkGlobe News/10253001

~ Juneau voters will soon be faced with a major decision: whether to invest in a new purpose-built city hall building or spend millions on expensive renovations and climbing rent. To ensure that everyone in Juneau has all the information they need before going to the polls, the City and Borough of Juneau Engineering and Public Works Department have launched a new website at bit.ly/cbjcityhall.

The website includes frequently asked questions, financial studies, and public meeting materials related to the ballot initiative. With $14 million needed in repairs and a changing rental landscape, doing nothing is no longer an option. The Assembly has approved an ordinance that allows the city to talk publicly about the ballot measure, making it easier for Juneau voters to get the full picture of the choice facing them today.

The website provides answers to questions such as why this is back on the ballot, what's changed since last year, how does a new city hall save money, what will this do to property taxes, why 450 Whitter Street was chosen as the location for the new building, and what about parking?

To further help inform voters of their decision, an open house will be held on September 13th where questions can be answered and tours of CBJ's existing facilities can be taken. This communication was paid for by the City and Borough of Juneau located at 155 South Seward Street in Juneau, AK 99801.
