the critical  issue facing school  districts was  in finding

that Sitka's top  2 requests built more  in school districts

Juneau was a strong innovator  in the arts, including drama,

NANCY WATERMAN, SELF, JUNEAU,  testified against the funding

Completing  SLAM, fully  funded, was  a priority  for Juneau

completion of the project would  be taken. She felt that the                                                                    
Juneau Access  Project was not  a high priority.  Juneau had

ROMAN MOTYKA, SELF, JUNEAU, spoke  against the Juneau Access                                                                    
Project.  He felt  that  the term  "Juneau  Access" did  not                                                                    
accurately describe  the project.  The current DOT  plan for                                                                    
the  project was  two stages:  1) build  the road  to Comet,                                                                    
which was the location of  the Kensington Mine; and 2) build                                                                    
the road along  22 miles of coast line across  a gauntlet of                                                                    
geo-hazards. He  announced that DOT  had hired a  firm which

shoots.  He  stressed  that road  would  be  geo-technically                                                                    
challenging,  and  extremely  expensive. He  felt  that  the

and effective system.  He pointed out that  the ferry system                                                                    
would still need  to be maintained, if the  road were built.                                                                    
He felt  that there  were going to  be major  incidents that                                                                    
would close  the road for  a substantial period of  time, so                                                                    
the ferry  system must  be maintained.  He pointed  out that                                                                    
the proposal  built the road  to another ferry  terminal. He                                                                    
felt that  the project would only  save one or two  hours of
