Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the provisions of AS 38.05.801 and 11 AAC 99, the Executive Director of the Alaska Mental Health Trust Land Office (TLO) has determined that it is in the best interest of the Alaska Mental Health Trust and its beneficiaries to complete an Easement (455) expansion of certain Trust land to the Municipality of Anchorage and Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility. The basis for this determination is explained in a written best interest decision prepared by the Executive Director pursuant to 11 AAC 99.040.

The Trust land affected by the decision is adjacent or near to Yosemite Drive which intersects Eagle River Loop Road and Yellowstone Drive in Eagle River, Alaska, and is more particularly described as:  a portion of the North ½ of the Northeast ¼, located within Section 23, Township 14N, Range 2W, Seward Meridian, containing up to .81 acres of expanded Right of Way (ROW) for a new ROW area of up to 2.72 total acres (MH Parcel  SM-1623).

Persons who believe that the written decision should be altered because it is not in the best interests of the Trust or its beneficiaries, or because the decision is inconsistent with Trust management principles set out in 11 AAC 99.020, or any other provision of 11 AAC 99, must provide written comments on or before 4:30 PM, February 15, 2017. Comments should be submitted to the TLO at 2600 Cordova Street, Suite 100, Anchorage, AK  99503, or by fax (907) 269-8905 or email mhtlo@alaska.gov. Following the comment deadline, the Executive Director will consider timely comments that question the decision on the basis of the best interest of the Alaska Mental Health Trust and its beneficiaries or inconsistency with 11 AAC 99, and the best interest decision may be changed in response to such written comments or other information. Commenting parties will be provided a copy of the final best interest decision after the end of the notice period.
