Rural Proposal RP19-01, submitted by Jeffrey Bryden, requests that the Board rescind the nonrural determination for Moose Pass, Alaska. This would change Moose Pass from a nonrural to a rural community. Under the former rural determination process, the community of Moose Pass was aggregated with the Seward area and determined to be nonrural. The Board has not yet considered Moose Pass an independent community under the new Policy on Nonrural Determinations adopted in 2017.

The public is encouraged to attend this meeting in person or by calling the telephone number below. When prompted, enter the passcode. Comments will be forwarded to the Board for consideration on this proposal to change Moose Pass from nonrural designation to rural designation.
