HSC : June 2022 Trails Strategy Meeting

The Hoonah Stewardship Council Met On June 16th with Haley Johnston of Alaska Trails to talk about the Hoonah Trails Strategy. She was looking for feedback on what she learned from her discussions in Hoonah- and there’s still time to provide it!

Want to jump straight to providing feedback? Take this 5 question survey : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSerZmLMWGg3TRX7h4oKbXxVjpmWJDsMBFzSsQTfgnk5HmMcvA/viewform

Want to read the whole trails strategy? It’s a great document and talks about what Haley found for project opportunities and Hoonah’s Goals. Go here : View Trails Strategy Draft This is still a draft document and needs community eyes and voice! If you haven’t had a chance to take the survey yet then think about this summer of Hoonah’s Recreation Wants/Values/Goals:

Do you think these goals align with Hoonah’s needs/interests in trail building and recreational development?

These goals are in some cases aggregates of opinions offered by stakeholders and are paraphrased here for brevity and ease of understanding. While this plan hopes to capture, to the best of our abilities, the goals of the community of Hoonah, we acknowledge that there may be community goals that we have overlooked, misunderstood, or failed to capture. Again, we would like to reiterate that this is a draft document and feedback is welcomed and encouraged.

1. Healthy Local Economy – business opportunities and good jobs

2. More trails and other active outdoor recreational amenities that benefit both residents and visitors

3. Improved public health. Specifically, access to trails that do not require a car

4. Access to subsistence resources and a diversity of ecosystems

5. Sustainable tourism that achieves these goals, while maintaining good quality of life for residents and protection of or the natural environment
