Future Land Use Planning Alternatives for Alaska: One of a Series of Articles on the Native Land Claims.
Parker, Walter B.
As one in a series of eight articles written by different professionals concerned with Alaska Native land claims, this article focuses on land use planning alternatives after December of 1976 when the configuration of Alaska lands will have been largely finalized under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1972. While this particular booklet does not include vocabulary or questions, others in the series present both which are relevant to this article and are designed for an advanced secondary or adult level of education. The alternatives for future land use planning which are presented in this article include: (1) planning which will accomodate inevitable interrelationship between the functional aspects of land management (watershed, fish and game, natural resource, and recreational management); (2) creation of a single central agency to control all Federal land managment and regional planning efforts (to result in policy, planning, and budget coordination at the five-year, prior-year, and present year level); (4) increased responsibility for the Federal-State Land Use Planning Commission established under the Settlement Act; (5) utilization of the State of Alaska as the base for cooperative management so that Federal agencies would be partially responsible to State and borough planning powers.
