Prince of Wales Island Area Plan Amendment

(Inclusion of the Southwest Prince of Wales Island Area)

Adopted: May 29, 2008

On May 29, 2008 the Commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources adopted the Prince of Wales Island Area Plan Amendment (POWIAP Amendment).  This Amendment rescinds the former Southwest Prince of Wales Island Area Plan, first adopted in 1985 and incorporates the revised southwest area into the 1998 Prince of Wales Island Area Plan (POWIAP).

The POWIAP Amendment functions as a stand alone document that essentially utilizes Chapter 2 and 4 requirements of the POWIAP, but does not otherwise affect the management of lands already part of the POWIAP. The Amendment establishes revised land use designations; management intent and management guidelines for more than 1 million acres of state tide and submerged lands and over 6 thousand acres of state owned or selected uplands in the southwest Prince of Wales Island area.
