Kenai Chamber supports Alaska LNG in Nikiski

The Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center has joined several other local organizations and communities in supporting Nikiski as the location for Alaska Gasline Development Corporation’s (AGDC) liquefaction plant and marine terminal.

“It is the mission of the Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center (KCCVC) to promote economic development, stimulate job growth, provide initiatives to promote local businesses and foster positive relations between business and community for the benefit of Kenai,” the center said in a resolution.

The resolution, signed by Board Chairman Karl Heinz and Board Secretary Penny Furnish, is one of several recently passed in the Kenai and Soldotna area showing support for AGDC.

Last week, Kenai Peninsula Borough and the city of Kenai passed similar resolutions. Soldotna City Council is slated to discuss the topic at their meeting Wednesday.
