Gordon Lunn attended a Zoom meeting sponsored by JBER (Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson) to develop a Programmatic Agreement to incorporate the cultural and historical ramifications of having JBER designated a historical place due to its having originally been lands occupied by the Knik, Ektlutna and Chickaloon native tribes.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the Alaska State Preservation office, the Bureau of Land Management, the American Commission for Historic Places (ACHP), Friends of Nike Site Summit, and tribal council members of the three tribes.


The Agreement being developed will incorporate and expand the existing Programmatic Agreement for Site Summit. A draft will be circulated when it is available. Signatories will comprise JBER, the State Preservation Office, and ACHP.


LA43 restoration (Edwin Warlich) will not be going forward.


SF88 Updates:

Greg Brown, volunteer at SF88, is pre-approved for $150.00 for replacing corroded outlets and other minor repairs such as lubricating the elevator rails and doors. He will advise more at our next meeting.

Also the antenna needs repairing.


Al Kellogg will visit SF88 and power wash the vans first. Per Greg Brown there is rust and damage that needs attention. Al Blank and Al Kellogg want to continue the work on the dog yard. So far the paint used last year has been very good but there is maintenance in weed removal that is required to make the area available for dog training.


Webmaster Ron Jacobs advised that our website is aging. More will be addressed at the next meeting.


Next meeting will be on July 18, 2021 at 11 a.m. via Zoom.


Meeting adjourned at 11:46 a.m.
