This ordinance would amend the code section prohibiting the discharging of firearms in certain areas to remove an incorrect geographic reference.
CBJ 42.20.050 prohibits the discharge of firearms within a quarter mile of the Mount Roberts Trail. In describing the trail, the code specifically identifies the trailhead as beginning at Sixth Street. Although that trailhead still exists and is still in use, the official trailhead is now at Basin Road. Eliminating the specific reference to Sixth Street would result in both trailheads being recognized for purposes of CBJ 42.20.050.
At the April 3, 2017, meeting, an Assembly member questioned the reference to Sixth Street and asked staff to look into the question. This ordinance is a result of that inquiry.
