TRANSPORTATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF ALASKA NATURAL RESOURCES. COMMISSION STUDY

One of the central issues that has emerged in the analysis of the (d)(2) lands has been the relationship between access, transportation development, and land use. The importance of access to both Federal and non-Federal lands, particularly for major natural resource development, is clear. Two comprehensive questions delineate the principal concerns that have been addressed. Firstly, the question of future demand for transportation has been considered. This, in turn involves treating the potential for future resource development and the corollary issue of the role of transportation in determining the feasibility of resource development. The demands of settlement development and a growing population must also be considered. The second dimension of the overall analysis addresses the relationship of the (d)(2) lands and future transportation development. The paper is divided as follows: In Chapter 2, some general relationships between transportation and resource development are considered. In Chapter 3, renewable resources are analyzed. Chapter 4 focuses on hardrock minerals. Chapter 5 treats Alaska's energy resources. Chapter 6 discusses the issue of corridor designations on (d)(2) lands. In Chapter 7, general policy implications, conclusions, and recommendations are presented. These findings provide part of the basis for a forthcoming Commission document in which specific recommendations for a future corridor designation process are developed and presented.
