Community Capital Project Requests

Each year, the Assembly approves a list of capital project funding requests and project booklet for submission to the Governor and Legislature. For more than 30 years, the Community of Ketchikan's annual capital project lists have been developed through a series of meetings inviting participants from all areas of the community. Community projects, as well as the municipal priority projects are included in the booklet.

  • July/August - Borough Clerk’s office solicits capital project requests from public, nonprofit, and municipal entities
  • August/September - Public meetings are held to discuss community priority capital projects
