Rainbird Trail Closure

Rainbird Trail Closed Due to Damage from Rain

The Rainbird Trail sustained damage during the rain event of October 31 – November 1. 

The Ketchikan Borough-maintained section between the two staircase trailheads sustained two individual washouts and one landslide, which makes the trail impassable due to safety issues.  The location near the southern trailhead is particularly difficult to address due to the steep terrain and unstable ground conditions. 

The Borough has installed barricades and signage that closes the trail. 

It is anticipated that the closure will last through the winter while Public Works staff determines a plan for permanent repairs. 


Staff also reviewed blowdown over the trail on the unmaintained segment near the University of Alaska Southeast Ketchikan Campus, which was minimal.

Public Comment Requested

Deadline: December 05, 2020

Every five years, the Alaska Governor’s Council on Disabilities and Special Education (Council) is required by the United States Administration on Developmental Disabilities to create a state plan of goals and objectives for its work as the Developmental Disabilities Council for Alaska. 

The Council must decide what it plans to get done during the next five years. Before writing the plan, the Council held virtual community forums to find out what participants think is important for people with disabilities and their families. 

The Council also sent a web survey to thousands of Alaskans asking similar questions. Once the information was collected, the Council met in May and September 2020 to review the information and to decide what priorities, goals, and objectives the Council should work on during 2022 through 2026. 

Based on the work of the Governor’s Council members, the draft 2022-2026 State Plan has been developed and is now available for public comment. 

The plan describes the goals and objectives that the Council will work on during the years 2022-2026. You may request a copy by calling (907) 269-8990 or toll-free in Alaska at (888) 269-8990.  The draft State Plan  (PDF) will be available for public comment until December 5th, 2020 at 5:00 pm. 

This is the 45-day period for public notice that is required by the Developmental Disabilities Act. You may provide public comment using the options below:

If you have any questions about the public comment process or need assistance completing the survey, please contact Anne Applegate at (907) 269-5703, toll-free within Alaska at (888) 269-8990, or via email at We know that your time is valuable and greatly appreciate you providing your feedback and comments on the draft 2022-2026 State Plan for the Governor’s Council on Disabilities and Special Education.
