BIK&S

    This week: if you doubt “livability” has become a prime factor for companies and professionals seeking a new home, just look at the ways cities all over the nation — and Canada — used to woo Amazon’s so-called “Headquarters 2.” Livability with recreation of a high caliber was front and center of pitches to the World’s Biggest Company.

Amazon could probably put their HQ2 wherever they want, but if Apple or Facebook are in better spots, they will win over more of the limited supply of highly qualified computer geniuses.

  The City of Kenai and BIK&S, Biking in Kenai & Soldotna, are seeking your assistance in securing a grant to help fill in the pedestrian pathway gap on Bridge Access Road in Kenai. City Planner Elizabeth Appleby and BIK&S' Kaitlin Vadla discuss the project with KDLL's Jay Barrett on this week's Kenai Conversation.

A dedicated multi-use path is in the very early works for Beaver Loop road in Kenai. The local biking group that recently got the cities of Kenai and Soldotna some recognition for being bike-friendly, is now working on a grant through the state Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.
