City of Seldovia Small Boat Harbor Improvement Project Priority Selection Survey

The City of Seldovia is seeking assistance from past and present harbor users, community members, and other interested individuals in order to consider and prioritize the harbor repair and improvement options. However, according to Seldovia’s project engineering company, Michael L. Foster & Associates, there is not enough funding to restore the harbor to its original condition, let alone make any major design improvements. The city is asking survey respondents to prioritize the various options according to what they feel to be in the best long term interest of the community.

You may participate in this survey in a variety of ways.
