Our cabin community will sprout from a lot of undeveloped land at the end of Jarvis Street that belongs to the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, who have generously agreed to this use of their property.
It's also a site where people experiencing homelessness have historically camped out.
An exploratory report produced by Agnew::Beck Consulting estimates that developing this land into a cabin community will cost just over $1 Million, not including ongoing operating expenses.
