Kenai City Council

City of Kenai

At its meeting Wednesday night, the Kenai City Council was eager to learn more about a potential sale of city property for infrastructure to house a hybrid airship — a kind of blimp with a large cargo and passenger capacity.

Ron Hyde, owner of the Cannery Lodge and PRL Logistics on Kenai’s south side, plans to use hybrid airships to supply oil and gas and mining operations around the state, based out of Kenai, and approached city administration with the desire to lease or purchase the land off Bowpicker Lane.

Members of the Kenai City Council got to meet its new professional community boosters last night at its regular meeting.
    Coy West of Divining Point, an Austin, Texas, marketing firm told the council the project to market the city is getting underway.
    “So the scope at this point is is I think being thoroughly defined. One of the things that we're looking forward to is really finding those qualities and characteristics about the city of Kenai that make it unique,” he said. “Not only to the Kenai Peninsula, but also Alaska and the greater U.S.”

Nearly three years after the first retail cannabis store opened in Kenai, the city council is still working to tailor local rules to the local market.

 

 


       It won't be formally addressed until its next regular meeting, but last night the Kenai City Council heard from a couple cannabis store owners about proposed restrictions to hours of operation.

Ron Isaacs of The Gardens on the Spur Highway in Kenai was against any limiting of store hours beyond what the state requires. He pointed out that only the hours of marijuana stores in surrounding jurisdictions were considered when coming up with the proposed restrictions.

Kenai Fine Arts Center

          Today is First Thursday in the Central Kenai Peninsula, and it's the official kick-off of the Kenai Fine Arts Center's Harvest Art Auction.

Organizer Marion Nelson reminded the Kenai City Council of the event at Wednesday night's meeting.

"You have the silent auctions essentially on one side, one back wall and the outright auctions on the other side of the room," she said. "And for the silent auction item you can start bidding now, today, could have started."
