The 134-acre parcel (formerly known as the Wrangell Institute site) is the last large desirable undeveloped tract remaining in Wrangell. The Wrangell Institute Subdivision and Master Planning process resulted in a site specific master plan to guide the next stages of development for Wrangell’s Institute property that will meet the needs of the community, along with providing economic opportunities. The plan, developed through an intensive collaborative public process, promotes a mix of residential and economic opportunities for the site. It includes phased development of a variety of residential sized lots, small commercial/retail, a new education campus, an assisted living facility, open space and trail networks connecting to existing recreation facilities, and a new mixed use neighborhood that would support other development in the Shoemaker Bay area. The plan assesses and identifies utility and storm water infrastructure needs, protection of wetlands, site access, land uses, environmental issues, potential development and financial partnerships, economic opportunities, and fiscal impact analysis. This project included significant public involvement to engage the community and allow input and help direct the planning effort. The Wrangell Institute planning team was comprised of Corvus Design, R&M Engineers (Ketchikan), Rain Coast Data, NorthWind Architects, and LEI Engineering.
