…that I had originally gotten a North Slope Borough development permit for the Nuvuk Archaeological Project that expired in September 2009. At the time I applied, we only had funding for the 3 years, so that seemed reasonable. We’ve been fortunate to get additional funding, which has let us do at least one extra season.
However, that means that technically we need a new permit (or at least the old one extended/renewed). I know, it’s not development, but it is a ground-disturbing activity, and that what the NSB calls all permits. At least they have a permit system that actually covers such things, unlike some places.
Anyway, once I noticed the oversight, I spent the rest of Friday getting all the paperwork and backup together for BASC to take over to the Planning and Permitting Department. I think everything they need is there, and since it is a renewal, I hope it won’t be a problem for them. They do have an extension sort of category.
